What is the strangest thing you've ever eaten?

It would be interesting to know what weird delicacies are out there.

Updates:
Apparently there is this thing with people and escargot..
We have guinea pig, goat eyeballs, pickled sheep's feet,... Uh, oysters, snakes, scorpions, crickets, squid, and many more. Bring it on people.

  • Prom night of '09.

    My two friends and I didn't go.

    Instead, we made smores and I tried a pickled pig's foot.

    Never again.

  • I served for 2 years in the army training with the Lebanese rangers (most extreme special forces in the Lebanese army).
    Part of our training was survival techniques so we had to camp in extreme conditions and eat whatever was available so the starngest things I ate were snakes and scorpions
    Snakes taste good, scorpions do not

  • I'm in Texas, and here there is this dish called Barbacoa, it's basically meat from a cows head, often including the tongue.

    It's sounds disgusting but it's actually quite good.

    There's also ox tail soup, also very good, it has a oxen's tail in the soup hence the name.

    • You haven't been judged, I'm fascinated. Everyone here is a notch higher for trying weird stuff :) I don't know why, but I feel bad for the pigeon. It's a friend of the cityfolk lol

    • Oh no definitely not wild pigeons...
      Pigeons are certainly not my friend, you can tell that to my favorite jacket!

  • Leaves from random trees and grass when I was 15 and 16.

    I'm so broken and screwed.

    • Now that's something I have to try ):D did it taste bad o_o?

    • It was sweet and slimy with a taste that lingers on your tongue afterwards.
      The smell just makes it really hard to eat.

    • Interesting... Plus one for jackfruits then :D

  • When I was out in Egypt, @MCtricks, for I had married a man out there, he turned me on to "Asub." This was a long green hard tree stalk like that is eaten certain times of the year, in which you suck all the sugar out of it, can make a drink from it with its succulent juices, and spit out the remains as you chew it.
    I was intrigued to say the least to watch my husband devour The biggest stalk I had ever seen. I laughed and told him: "Wow, you just ate a tree."xx

    • I've heard worse things. lol

    • Well it wasn't alive or anything. Someone brought those dried up seasoned ones to school. Not very good.

      Does licking pickled pigs feet count? I wanted to cut my tongue out afterwards.

  • escargots, I think
