I love my mum's chicken innards soup (cooked with rice wine). But my personal favourate food combo that people often find quite odd is McDonalds fries with soft serve ice cream (as a dip) or oreo mcflurry.

ScruffyAsh - If that is something you like alot, you should *really* explore the link between "chocolate and salt" seriously, one of my favorite treats is to dip salty hot fries into a chocholate malt. I am sure there are many other REALLY good combos, but I am afraid to explorer.

My daughter has always loved to dip her French fries in a chocolate shake. I thought she was the only one.

I guess some people would consider raw oysters, escargot, calamari and liver gross, but I love them all.
Cooked oatmeal is the grossest food I've run across. Yuck! Ick! My mother used to insist I eat it, and would stand over me until I did. But I wouldn't, and the stuff would get cold and gluey. Every time I tried to eat a bite, it made me gag. Finally, my dad intervened. I had no idea that he didn't like oatmeal until he said, "Norma, don't make her eat that stuff. It tastes like snot."

Constance - I've read your posts for a while now (mostly lurk mode as I did not have time to spend more then ten minutes or so here), and you've always appealed to me as a very nice and common sense person.


I agree with the "gross" prospective. I NEVER make anyone, kid or otherwise, more then just taste something. I will tell you my gross point would be your mentioned liver. I will how ever state that one on my favorite items growing up was KFC chicken gizzards. Knowing that many people would think that gross, or the braised squirrel I frequently enjoyed, I would have a hard time in telling others what they should/should not eat.

OTOH, I would shoot the person (one of my two step dads in this case), for feeding me chocolate covered ants in the form of a candy bar., It seemed like a high quality "Nestles Crunch" chocolate bar, and my only curiosity was the number of small things stuck between my teeth until he told me gleefully what it was.

I also like the sludge that falls off hamburgers when you cook them on the stove.
