    What's the nastiest thing you've ever eaten?

    This might be a good way of warning each other about terrible food. Do not eat this!

    The most disgusting thing I've ever eaten, as far as food you can go and buy in a supermarket, is poppadoms. I can't remember what brand they were, but it was some kind of herby flavor. But the texture, the taste... Holy moly, it was like munching on a moldy toenail. I spat that crap out immedietly.

    I also shared an old dog biscuit (at least, it looked like one) with my friend that we found on the floor in my old school's ICT room. Why we decided to eat it I have no idea, but it tasted foul. When I think about it now, what was a dog biscuit doing in there in the first place? It probably came off of someone's shoe or something.

    What are your terrible food discoveries?

    For me, the most disgusting food I've ever eaten is brussel sprouts- though it could just be the way my grandmother makes them. My father couldn't agree more is the funny thing (since usually it's parents trying to push them on kids).

    Though...Vendor falafel tends to be absolutely wretched. If you don't know what it is, it's a middle-eastern food made with fried chickpea patties (well, they can make it with fava beans, but I think it's normally chickpeas). They basically look like vegetarian meatballs. Now, falafel CAN be tasty...If it's made right. But street vendors tend to make them really crappily, and they taste like dirt with a similar consistency (yes, I probably ate dirt as a kid...and paper...shush). It's usually served with tahini sauce (a type of sesame sauce) and pickled veggies, salad and other things on top, especially if in a pita. The only time I've ever actually liked falafel was one time my uncle made it. Otherwise...I gag.


    Also fun fact: I actually talked my dad into eating a dog biscuit once (when I was little). He goes back and forth to this day between telling me it tasted horrible, and telling me he liked it. The day he ate it, he said it was really tasty. xD

    I don't like brussel sprouts either, actually. Looking up pictures of falafel makes me think I wouldn't like that, either.

    Haha, what the heck? At least it was a clean one! I hope it was, anyway. I wonder if he just says he didn't like it so you won't follow in his footsteps...

    Durian-flavored candy. My friend found some one time, whole bag of it, and a bunch of us dared each other to try it. Pretty soon, it became a competition just to see who could keep it in their mouth the longest, much less eat it! We had fun, ended up calling it one big draw, because no one could manage more than one single second.

    It was...awful. Awful. I laughed hilariously when my longtime friend tried it before me, spit it out, and exclaimed "it tastes like old church toys!" XD As nonsensical as that sounds, I found out only moments later how dead-on accurate that was...there's no way to describe it unless you've experienced it. I'm sorry if somehow, someone on here actually likes Durian fruit, but it's just gross. I'm NOT a picky eater, and I enjoy expanding my culinary horizons, but you couldn't pay me enough to eat an actual piece of Durian. Flavored hard candy of it almost made me puke.

    (Before I ever had the "pleasure" myself, I found it quite funny how trained food critic/daring culinary adventurer Andrew Zimmern on "Bizarre Foods" couldn't bring himself to consume the infamous fruit.)

    Old church toys? I can kind of imagine... an old, musty taste? It sounds revolting, and now I know to stay well away! Thanks for the warning, Lobo.

    I don't know anything about old church toys, or why you'd eat them. Then again, we all taste weird things as kids...paper, for example. What's sad is I know through that some of my medicine tastes even worse than it.

    That said, I still want to try durian flavor anyway. Because of my sense of smell (or lack thereof) I have slightly different tastes than others (for example, my grandmother denies grapefruit being sweet. It's plain revolting to me.) And on some shows I've seen, people either love or hate durians, but especially due to the smell. The smell can't bother me, so I wanna see my own reaction to it. I'd like to see a bartlet pear tree too, and taste a fresh one, as I hear those trees smell like skunks.

    I honestly really like Brussel Sprouts. Wilt them a little, add some salt, and theyre really good. But, hey, i dont like chocolate ice cream, so...my tastes are weird any way lol.

    For me, though, black liquorice is the nastiest thing I've ever eaten. It's just....really ardour and bitter. I tried it once years and years ago, and just hated it.

    Now, if we're talking worst think you ever drank, for me, it's Red Hook. I HORRID beer that has become a bit of a tradition to drink it for...fun. though it's not fun.
    Its...a disgusting beer that tastes bitter and has a chalky after taste. Do not drink Red Hook. It's difficult to drink even one bottle without feeling lime you're going to vomit.

    Red Hook sounds like something from a punishment game. Basically mix anything available into a toxic looking mess...and you know what my friends and I tortured each other with.

    The reason why some people like sprouts and some detest them is interesting because its a genetic factor due to variants of the TAS2R38 gene (sometimes referred to as the Brussel Sprout Gene).

    That's really interesting to know, musenko. It's crazy to think there are specific genes that determine our tastebuds. I grew up around these girls who absolutely loved brussel sprouts, they ate them like they were candy.
