What's The Most Unusual Thing You've Ever Eaten? Some, Ahem, Interesting Results!

One of the things I love about about blogging is interacting with people who share similar passions, which, in my case, just happens to be food and wine. I recently posted the question on Facebook & Twitter, "What's the strangest or most unusual food you've ever eaten?" I should have braced myself for the responses!

I found the results so interesting and, in many cases, repelling I just had to share them with you. I've listed them from most to least shocking (in my opinion):

1. Cod Sperm
2. Chicken Blood Soup
3. Live Jellyfish
4. Jellyfish Salad
5. Chicken Feet in Broth
6. Haggis
7. Head cheese
8. Sea Urchin
9. Emu
10. Fast Food

Most of the off-putting dishes seemed to originate in China with contributions from Scotland and New Zealand as well. The cultural differences around the world are truly fascinating, aren't they?

Please visit me on Facebook and Twitter to join in future fun food and wine discussions! It's so interesting hearing everyone's responses. So, dear readers, what's the strangest or most unusual food you've ever eaten? Do tell - I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. I would love to know what Andrew Zimmern would add to this list!!

  2. Sounds like the banquet from hell! Not at all sure about "head cheese"

  3. Congratulations on the new blog! I'm sure it will be as amazing as you are! The name is perfect as you are both glamorous and a gourmet!!
