Gross food challenge!

Ok, so here's the deal. Every year my bf's huge group of friends and family go on this camping weekend trip. This year, bf planned out this elaborate "survivor" type game. One of the challenges has to do with 5 different types of gross food. Some of the ideas we've come up with are sardines, cooked, cold Brussels sprouts, and maybe sour kraut or something. We need more ideas... Please help!

liver (although I like it, others don't)
kidney (not on my table, thank you)
raw oysters (but they might be hard to transport--I love raw oysters, but a friend's husband can't stand to watch us eat them)

Lol I'm thinking liver smoothie... Eeeewwww!!! I better not come up with anything too nasty because I plan to be one of the players lol. You have to make it to the top 5 to make it to the food challenge tho.

And raw oysters would probably be hard for camping. That's one I thought of too tho :)

Boiled okra might give you the "snot" factor, somewhat like oysters.

Pig's feet, chittlin's, tripe, beef tongue, pork brains scrambled with eggs, boudin noir,
menudo, crisco sandwiches....I reckon that's enough for now...give somebody else a chance.

Gross For Me

Skittles,

Fab topic, however, what is gross for one person, is a delicacy for another ...

I detest in any form:

pumpkin and yellow squash
soy beans and tofu ( allergic to soy )
overcooked stew meat of any type
green peas mashed or puréed
canned chicken or canned ham & overload of sodium
okra
Partridge ( cereal ) in any form
Orange and yellow bland bland tasteless Cow cheeses from northern Europe and the USA
orange foods except oranges
yellow foods except lemon
pig´s feet, manitas ...
sangré ( pig´s blood )
anything in a can
most forms of lard as an item to eat ( they are to be used to grease a roast )
Carrot cake in any form ( this is not a dessert )
Grits
Greasy anything
Cuban style fried pork
Chinese cuisine: chop suey, chow mein and any other wee tiny diced and over cooked garbage they could poison with and their Msg
most fresh water Fish ( there are a couple of exceptions )

Textures like Snotty, runny, overcooked and pasty ...

Have fun Skittles,
Margi.

Now..let me clarify....the only thing on my list that I do not enjoy is the crisco sandwich. Most folks I know, find all of the items on that list objectionable for one reason or another. The crisco sandwich is one of the few things I balk at trying. I worked with a guy many years ago (circa 1984/85) who brought his lunch to work. He ate at least one crisco sandwich everyday. I wonder if he is still alive.....

Margi.....some of the things on your list I can understand.
I reckon you most likely ain't never had properly cooked grits.

I am unfamiliar with a cereal by this name...there is a wild fowl that is called partridge (Quail) in these parts, mighty good eating, by the way.
What is partridge?

She may have meant porridge.
