This question is a little subjective since foods that are common in one culture may be unheard of in another, but it’s still a fun topic to discuss!
If you also grew up in a family of fishers and hunters or in a rural area, some of the meat on list might seem pretty ordinary.
The rest of them I’ve tried on vacations or by picking up random pieces of produce at the grocery store and wondering if I’d like them!
The strangest foods I’ve eaten include:
- Chicken hearts and livers
- Dragon fruit
I was not a big fan of the lychee, frog, or pomegranates, but I enjoyed the rest of them.
But by far the strangest thing I’ve ever eaten is grass. When I was a child, I couldn’t figure out why cows ate grass but humans didn’t eat it. It seemed to me that a calorie was a calorie no matter where it came from. I loved lettuce, so I assumed grass would taste just as good.
Spoiler alert: it wasn’t tasty. There was very little flavour to it at all, but the stringy texture of it convinced me that while cows might like grass, this human does not. 😉
