#14. The most disgusting food I’ve ever eaten was…
This was kind of a tough question, because I will try just about anything, and I like a large variety of foods. I couldn’t even think of an example of something that was rotten that I may have accidentally ate. But if I had to choose, I’d narrow it down to either scallops or Kraft dinner with ketchup.
Now, to some of you, those are normal foods – however, I find them completely disgusting.
Scallops may have to do with the fact that I may (or may not be) allergic to them (long story short – my allergist told me it’s quite possible I have an intolerance to them, and it may be best to avoid them). Even if I wasn’t worried that they may be a physical harm to me, I would stay as far away from these buggers as I could. The smell of them makes me want to throw up – that sickening sweet smell makes my stomach turn. I tried to eat one once, and the texture was just awful – I can’t even fully describe how it was to me. It felt like a large, firm, yet slimy, booger of sorts. It had a sickly sweet taste that just didn’t sit well, and when I tried to eat one for the first (and only) time, I couldn’t swallow it (whether it be from revulsion or possibly an allergy, I don’t care, it was freaking gross).
And to me, Kraft Dinner with Ketchup is just nasty. I only like Ketchup on a select few items anyways – like french fries, burgers, hot dogs and maybe grilled cheese. Anything else just really gives me an ick factor. Mostly because it just feels so wrong, like I’m not giving the food a chance. Plus I had an ex who put it on EVERYTHING. Kraft Dinner is pretty gross if you eat too much, so artificial tasting, but I can get by with it on its own. With Ketchup, it adds this gross sweet flavour to it, and it just doesn’t mix well to me. Plus I find it gives it this disgusting texture, and very unappealing colour.
So there you have it, my weird choice of foods that I found to be extremely disgusting. Keep in mind, that I’ve tried a lot of different foods – including eel, kangaroo, escargot, sweet breads, liver, kidneys, emu, quail, quail eggs, steak tartare, fried maggots, roasted ants, chocolate covered grasshoppers, and a bunch of other foods some people may never consider trying. So yeah – if those more typical food items are the most disgusting things I’ve ever had to eat, then they must really give me the ick factor.
