I ate a 20+ year old stick of bubble gum from a pack of baseball cards that I bought at a collector store. I was curious to if it could have held up and it didn't. It tasted like sharp cardboard.

When I was a kid, I ate a dog biscuit and some dry dog food just to see what it was like. (Mostly tasteless.)

Hey, I've done that one, too! You should have asked - it doesn't hold up, but it's nice to see that I wasn't the only one stupid enough to try this.

I ate a "Jerky Treat" once in high school because I thought it was regular beef jerky.

As a kid, I used to put lots of stuff in my mouth (coins, grass, sticks, rocks, pens, pencils, checkers, batteries, you name it) just because. It's all gross to me now, but I never understood the big deal at the time.

Dog biscuits aren't that bad with a little cheese whiz on them. Then they're really thick triscuits.

I'd venture to say the grossest thing I've ever eaten was a live grasshopper. I didn't chew, just swallowed whole and felt it kick the whole way down.

A friend of mine in college used to eat goldfish when he was drunk enough. And not in the standard "tilt back, close your eyes, swallow whole" way. Nope, he chewed.

As for me, there's nothing in particular, but sometimes people are shocked by how little I care about eating food that's fallen on the ground. If there's visible dirt and hair stuck all over something, I'll throw it away, but 9 times out of 10 I'm putting it back on my plate. I feel this is the reason I haven't been seriously sick since I was in grade school; my immune system has had years of practice.

I once was explaining this to somebody while eating a grilled cheese sandwich. I was dared $1 to go outside and leave the sandwich on the porch for a good minute before eating the rest of it. Being a showoff, I left it for 5 minutes and got a 6 pack of Magic Hat Jinx instead. Thus, what is a 5 second rule to some is a 5 minute rule to me.

I was just visiting Mexico, and a few of the people I met raved about Chapulines (dry roasted, spiced grasshoppers).

You know what? Not that good, really.

Done this one as well. It basically disintegrated once the moisture hit it. The thing was, though, the gum only tasted just a tiny bit worse after 20 years. Of course, the gum was always awful, so what can I say.

I like to have fried eel in sushi and it is yummy.

The grossest thing I ever had was a fish eye I ate when I was four(?). My dad always told me that tapioca pudding was called "fish eye" pudding. If fish eyes were good as pudding, then they should taste good fried.

One night, my mom fried a fish and I told her I was going to eat an eye. She didn't believe me, but told me not to do it.

It tasted like a burnt Cheerio and left a bad taste in my mouth for hours.

Every year at Christmas, my Uncle Al makes up special "sandwiches" for all the male members of the family. The centerpiece is always a cocktail weenie.

Last year my sandwich was a cocktail weenie, honey-baked ham, chocolate fudge, broccoli, frozen salad, and carmel sauce. That one was tough to get down.

Well, as a kid I am sure I ate my share of boogers. That's pretty gross.

As an adult, baby food, particularly the beef and vegetables. I do not care how hungry I ever get, i will never eat THAT again!

Turkey, chicken, beef: any baby food that is based on a meat is horrible. (and that's coming from a guy that voluntarily eats Treet, Corned Beef, Corned Beef Hash, Vienna Sausages, and Potted Meat from time to time....)

Does McDonalds count? That's more out of necessity and sheer laziness than anything.

Seriously, though: my mother made a beet dish taht could only be described as cruel, inhumane, and possibly a breach of the Geneva Convention.

Second place goes to insects: I do a lot of cycling, and once in a while one or two find their way in my mouth as I'm speeding by. Yummy...not.

I travel to Mexico City frequently and second the sentiment about chapulines. When I had them, they were served in a tortilla with guacamole and salsa. The tortilla, guacamole, and salsa were about the best I've ever tasted. With the chapulines, the combination was not so good.

On other visits to Mexico City, I have eaten fried worms and ant eggs, neither of which was particularly good. My hosts were impressed and the people with whom I travelled were horrified. I'll try just about anything that's billed as a local delicacy. In the case of my experiences with Mexican delicacies, I've found that a little tequila does a nice job of killing any residual taste.

I've eaten goat testicles and raw beef on multiple occasions. Those are probably the WEIRDEST things I've ever eaten, but they're actually pretty good, so I guess that doesn't quite qualify as the GROSSEST. There have been several things I've tried to eat before and they were so bad I instantly spit them out. Sadly, none come to mind right now.

But I do remember recently having "torture wings" at a local Chinese bistro called Chai's. My friend told me about these wings that were supposed to be so hot that anyone that could finish a dozen of them would get a free t-shirt and their money back. Having completely dominated every spicy food I've ever come across, I thought this would be an easy way to get a free dinner. Holy cow, was I ever wrong. It took me two hours to finish, mostly because I filled up my stomach with Coke, Sprite, and ice because the wings were just too hot to stand. There were several times along the way when I thought I was going to vomit because they were just that spicy. But I finished them!

At four in the morning one winter's day at a Waffle House in middle of nowhere Kentucky, I actually tried grits.

Never again.

Ever.

In my youth (translation: mid 1980's), I was at a friend's house with several others. In searching for something to eat, one of them found a box of Milk Bone dog treats. He was immediately dared to try one, so he did. Over a period of about an hour, he ate the whole box.
