Miso is awesome, and I use Hosin often (try glazing a corned beef flat with some ).

I guess I don't look at anything as weird, just something I haven't tried yet

Roquefort Mustard (quite good, and I use it in Rainee's beer marinade in place of the regular mustard)
Broccolini looks like anorexic broccoli, fabulous tasting!

right now it seems everyone out here has loquats on their trees. The problem is that I don't know any of the folks with trees! It's one of my favorite fruits, but I can't find them in stores, as they perish quickly.

luvs, miso soup is one of my favorites. The strangest thing I bought recently was toffutti better than cream cheese. It tastes just like cream cheese. I like to spread it on crackers and top it with smoked salmon. Yum!!

Yesterday i bought purple cauliflower for fun for my 5 year old but it was just normal cauliflower dyed which just seems wrong!! It stained my dish when I microwaved it!!
PS 5yr old didn't really like it but my 67yr old father did. lol

As a classic example of an acquired taste:

Vegemite !


I lived in Oz for many years and came to really enjoy this stuff. I know most people would taste it and think it foul, but I get occasional cravings for it (thinly smeared on toast with melted cheese and freshly cracked pepper on top)... Mmmm

i LOVE vegemite on toast w/ butter, even though i'm American and people don't usually eat it over here.

That's what I've been trying to TELL you!!!

Honestly, though, I think most people who try it are not ready for the intensity and the uniqueness of the flavor. People in the US are used to slathering the peanut butter on nice and thick. It takes a while to get used to the required portion of Vegemite for the desired result. It's really nice, but a little bit goes a long way.

Oh, and yes, Tim Tams are
