What is your favorite snack that no one else will touch

This can be anything that you love, but no one else in your home will eat. It can be a sandwich, a can of Vienna Sausage, Head Cheese, stinky cheese, potted meat, well, you get the idea.

Here are some of mine. Suffice it to say that I ate at my paternal grand parents home enough times to be introduced to a wide variety of foods.

1. Liverwurst (braunschweiger), straight up,or especially on toasted rye with lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, and Miracle Whip
2. Head cheese sandwich
3. VanCamp's Pork & Beans with cocktail wienies
4. Pickled Pig's Feat
5. Raging Bull Salsa
6. Red Hot pickled sausages
7. Granny Smith Apples
8. Rhubarb stalks
9. Salmon patties
10. Baloot (just kidding I won' touch it either.

Your turn.

Habanero peppers, though I have gotten a few others to like them, through the years.

Something that I eat that few others like, though it's not a snack, is bitter melon. Even some of the Indian people that I know won't eat them, though I have snuck them into dishes, without telling them, until they tell me they like the dish - a trick I've played on a number of people, with things they don't like, except with things like cilantro, which I realize is a genetic thing.

I like pistachios and a cold beer. A football game goes well with them.

I can never get anyone to share an anchovy pizza with me, so I always have enough leftovers for at least two more meals. In fact, since I have lived in California (40 years) I have only found three people to share an anchovy pizza, and they were all Pilipinos.

I have never had anyone share one with me. So, I buy the flat fillets in the little tray can. I think its Vigo brand.
When I order pizza, I put anchovies just on my slices.
When I am in a restaurant I ask for them on the side.
Frankly I like them uncooked better. Room temp from the can.
I want to try the salt packed some day.
Anchovies are so good. I wonder why so many despise them?

I didn't used to like anchovies, and I think it had something to do with those little tins of anchovies in the old days, in which the anchovies had shrunk up to about 1/3 the volume in the can, and the flavor was disgusting! It seems that anchovies quality goes down faster than other canned fish. The first ones I found that were good back then were the Progresso, which were in the refrigerator section of the stores, and the cans were filled with the anchovies, much lighter in color, and they were good. Later, I found even better ones in larger cans, which were also kept in the refrigerator case in better stores - in Claudio's, I have to ask for them, as they are in the back! I buy them in 16 oz cans, and empty them into a glass jar, when I open them.

I don't order pizza with anchovies. They tend to put far more than I like. I like a few chopped anchovies on pizza.

So a couple of mine, though some I haven't had in a while:
  • Apple slices with Italian dressing.
  • Canned peaches with French dressing (rue French is best).
  • Canned pears with cheap cheddar cheese.

I'll have to 2nd the liverwurst. In fact, I just bought some today. My husband would never touch it and my son won't touch it either.

Avocado is another one. No one in my family will eat it.

Canned smoked oysters.

Liver. Period. I don't know one other person who likes it. Deep-fried chicken livers is one of my favorite munchies. I also like beef liver and onions. Not exactly a snack, but it rolls in there with the liver option.

I adore Marmite Cashews. (Marmite is a very devisive substance!)

And I love dark chocolate covered pretzels called Flipz. However, apparently not enough people like dark chocolate so they are impossible to get in any shops and I have resorted to ordering them by the box from Amazon. Very sad. I have actually now bought some dark chocolate and a bag of pretzels (from the American section in the "Foods of the World" aisle in Sainsburys), and will attempt to make my own version! :-)

Both pork, and chicken livers make great pate', as do goose livers.

Is that something you made or something you buy? Is it a salad? I had a seafood salad in Pisa, Italy when we were there years ago. So good
