Food you wouldn't put in your mouth.

I have searched this topic and it doesn't appear anywhere.If it does let me know. What food would you never ever put in your mouth, or have tried once and will never try again? Never say never but the thought of froglegs gives me a bad feeling all over.

Sorry. I did not take into consideration our international friends here.

White Castle is a fast food restaurant, somewhat in line with McDonalds. The key difference is White Castle steams their burgers. Long story short, you either love them or you hate them. I've heard horror stories from people that have eaten them, all revolving around doing a major number to your digestive system. I've been told that if you top them with enough condiments, they don't taste so bad.

Bottom line for me is too many people have negative remarks about White Castle. I have had some of their fried stuff (fries, etc.) and to me it tastes like they are using the same oil from fiver years ago!

White Castle burgers are nasty, for sure, but some people love them.

I hate coffee...by itself, doctored up, in things, even the smell of it brewing. My stepson can talk me into anything, and he got me to take a sip of one of his Starbucks canned drinks last time he was here. I was totally grossed out.

Aside from coffee, no insects or worms...I don't care if they offer me a million bucks.

Exactly... I'm not a big fan of organ meat (offal) either, or things that combine meat/fish and gelatin.

Brains are gross. I used to work in a lab. I tried them once all I could think of was the smell of formaldehide and the jars at work with brains in them. There is no reason to eat something so gross.

Cooked spinach by itself ( I like it in a mixture) Collard greens, raw oysters and that about does it. Anything else is fair game for me.

Rye bread and this stuff my grandmother made ( I have no idea what's in it and don't care to know) called brown soup. Mom and her sisters love it. They used to beg for it every time they were sick. I smell it and get sick. ICKY!!!!
