How about a can of sardines! With a slice of onion, some red rind cheese, crackers, Louisiana Hot Sauce and/or Hot pepper sauce.

Morel mushrooms...we have them here in the spring, but my husband refuses to hunt them because the chiggers eat him up...and I'm not able to tromp the woods anymore. I have friends who collect them, but they never offer to share.

We didn't get any morels this year (too dry, I think), but last year an acquaintace gave us several pounds! We just finished eating them a few weeks ago (i semi-dehydrate and freeze, or make them into a sauce and freeze).

sea cucumber

I used to live on an island and when we tromped around the reef we had to avoid stepping on these - they creep me out big time!!!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEWWW - YUCK!!!!!!!! I can't even imagine eating them! I take it the icky stuff inside of them doesn't get eaten? See sea cucumber here and here

I'd say an unusual thing I do like is a fresh scallop, still alive - then thinly sliced and served with grated daikon radish and thinly sliced, grilled lemon. If I can get it it's usually at a sushi bar.

Fiddlehead ferns & tree ears - although both are easily purchased online.

I also like goat meat, but again, it's easy to find for me as a local organic meat producer raises them.

(Uh, Uncle Bob, while I do love sardines, I don't think they're especially difficult to find - lol!!! The OP wasn't looking for unusual combinations - just possibly difficult-to-find favorite foods.)
