I remember camping with a BF years ago and eating a chicken liver from our campfire bird. He was seriously creeped out. Also grossed out DH by eating a baby octopus in a cioppino. Tasted like a bandaide. Candied ants. Crunchy. Sardines as a kid till I discovered the skeletons. Something that looked like cooked rat in Antigua ( they said it was chicken). Whole scallops, including the orange stuff and guts in St. Martin ( didn't know any better).

I guess I am NOT an adventurous eater! So far most of the things on these lists you couldn't pay me enough to try!! The exceptions are the Kraft mac'n'cheese and the Kraft Parm and the spam.

Me too. Standard college food, might as well pour the salt shaker down your throat.

I know I can sub out, but it just doesn't taste the same. Certain flavors are hard to regain.

Your list seems completely normal to me, except for the alligator and squirrel, just don't find them around here.

A few of the more unusual things I have had (at least from an American's perspective)

Sea urchin roe (but any sushi aficianado will tell you it fabulous, and I agree, it is one of my favorites...too bad it is so expensive).

Chicken feet - dim sum staple. I am working with an aircraft maintenance company in Hong Kong, because of me, they affectionately refer to them as "landing gear".

Durian. Oniony, floral, pudding.

Lamb brains. Fresh, sliced, with a squeeze of lemon. Mmmmm.

Jellyfish salad. Crunchy, saline, good vehicle for other flavors.

To name a few.

A beef tongue that is well prepared, is actually very good. I tried to do it at home a couple of times, but I couldn't duplicate the beef tongue I ate in Germany. Sigh, such is the life of being a rudimentary cook.
