Answer for question 4172.
What’s the most unusual thing you've ever eaten? Did you like it? Would you eat it again?
Witchetty grub. Earthy, woody, and creamy, all at once. And no, I won't try that again.

Alligator balls... as in the sort you normally only get two per alligator.

And no, I wouldn't recommend them. Tastes like bad tuna and feels like chewing on a rubber ball.

Jellyfish. The Chinese dry a particular kind of jellyfish (not the stinging kind!), then slice it very thin. After it's been soaked in warm water, it's very much like cellophane noodles in appearance and texture, with an un-memorable flavor. It was served stir-fried in a very spicy-hot sauce, cleverly combined with cellophane noodles so I wasn't sure when I was eating noodles and when I was eating jellyfish. (There was also slivered cucumber in there someplace, mostly overwhelmed by the sauce.) The dish was served chilled, so it was both cold and hot :-)

Yes, I'd eat it again, if the spicy sauce didn't contain garlic. (I tasted it almost forty years ago, before my food allergies got really bad.)

Hmm. I ate a fried locust when I was a kid, but I don't really remember how it tasted. Apart from that, maybe bear? Bear's not bad.

I have a great fear of eating anything the least bit unusual, and I don't vary my diet much. What I would hesitate to eat most other people would think as mundane.

Just 2 days ago one of the girls at work was handing out something she'd made at home; tapioca and corn under a layer of coconut cream wrapped in a piece of banana leaf. I managed to get through it but no, it would take me a long time to get used to the taste.

Grasshopper salsa. Yes I would love to have it again.
