1. I had NO IDEA South Africa was famed for its fried chicken!

2. It's a potato chip AND it's fried chicken? How can it POSSIBLY be gross???

See, that's what I thought when I bought them. If you want to duplicate the taste, buy some regular chips and some Lipton Chicken Noodle Cup-A-Soup. Pour the dry soup powder on the chips, and you'll be pretty close. The smell was nauseating.

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I'm going to try a couple of odd flavours in the new year:



Boerwors (some type of South African sausage)




Biltong (from Wikipedia's description, it seems to be like beef jerky).

edit: From the waistlines of my extended family, I think South Africa focuses on fried food. Here is the description from the back of the bag of chips:

Who could ever forget coming home to a kitchen filled with the delicious aroma of crispy, golden fried chicken? Your mouth would water in anticipation of the feast to come! Simba continues this proud South African tradtition with its tantalising Fried Chicken flavour potato chips that ROARRR with South African flavour.

Weird things I've eaten while living in Cambodia:

Fried ants (mostly tasteless)
Fried frogs (not just legs, but an entire frog just dropped in a fryer)
* Rat meat (disgusting, and very tough)
* Cockroach (I vomited)
Quail eggs

I was recently served a helping of cow penis, but thankfully found out what it was before biting into it and declined.

* - eaten unknowingly

Popcorn-flavored Jelly Bellies are some of the worst-tasting food-- let alone alleged "candy"-- ever conceived by man.

Also, I was at a Thai restaurant awhile back and decided to try steamed spring rolls, since I love fried ones so much. Nasty. (But then, I don't eat salad, and that's probably what it tasted like.)

When I was a kid, I ate a dog biscuit to see what it was like. Not all that bad, actually.

In the realm of human food, when I was in Morocco several years back, I stopped in at a food stall and, not being able to read the menu, ordered "tranche de foie" based on the photo next to it. If I'd thought about it a bit, I might have been able to remember that it meant "slice of liver." Yuck. At another place in Marrakesh, I noticed "hambourger du cheval" on the menu, but fortunately I did remember what "cheval" meant.

Probably brains a long time ago. But it was edible.

Dog biscuts are not gross.

I've been known to use taking a bite out a dog biscuit before handing it to a dog as part of a bonding experience. It's not pleasant, but there are worse things.

It's like a gritty cracker. It tastes like it smells (not that flavorful, really).

How can there be anything left of an ant after frying it?

This might go into the 'drank' and not 'ate' category, but once I was shooting pool with my cousin back in our teens. He set down his tobacco-spit cup in the worst place possible: right next to my root beer. I took a hefty swig and then realized what horrible thing I had just done.

My aunt brought a can of some type of snack back from Singapore several years ago but I can't remember what it was called. It looked like a thick pretzel stick and tasted like a turd wrapped in hair and set on fire.

WINNER!

I doesn't matter, if its eat or drink. That's just gross. Couple two of the grosses things on the planet, Human Spit & Chew. Then eat it/drink it.... Yuck!


For me, Snail. I can't vouch for french cuisine (I imagine I would still hate it though), I had a Korean style snail when I was younger. It was the most disgusting thing that I ever ate. Texture & flavor just ruined it for me. Mostly flavor though. I just don't get it. Snails.....Yuck.

What's wrong with quail eggs? They're not much different from chicken eggs, just tiny. I had some in Japan - served deep fried with beef curry. Delicious.

I had some that I guess were boiled, and they were way too chewy. It was a texture thing.

Then again, in Cambodia, just because what I bought was identified as quail eggs doesn't mean they actually were quail eggs.

If they were very small, they could have been quail eggs. Because of their use on Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef, I've gone out of my way to try them and they're not chewy when cooked properly. They were just probably over boiled.

Even with chicken eggs, over boiling will turn them rubbery and pretty much not good eats.
