The only thing that I've had that I WILL NOT eat again was
goats head soup.

I love goat meat but this stuff was nasty.

When I was in China, I ate what looked like a beef jerky only to find out it was dog jerky. I found that very disturbing. I would not ever knowingly eat dog again.

There are very few things that I won't eat, dog is at the top of the list. For some reason, wolf and coyote would not bother me. Everything is in the perception. I love foie gras and truffles, although I prefer if someone else is paying.

It tasted like a sweet beef jerky. But different enough to make me wonder what it was....after that I stuck to vegetables while in China.

Blood sausage

While in the United Kingdom I had blood sausage (or was it blood pudding?) as part of my English breakfast. I'll try just about anything once. Blood sausage is not one that I'll try again.

In Germany their breakfasts are hard rolls, cold cuts, cheese, jam, butter some other things but the wierdest to me was something called Mett it's raw ground pork.

I'm from the United Kingdom and it is called blood sausage or black pudding. Whatever you want to call it, it is just plain nasty!!!
My husband has eaten sea urchin egg soup in Japan which he said was really crunchy.
