We all eat eggs, which are chicken periods, milk which is equivalent to sucking cow nipples, but the idea of frying blood is so gross?

Blood, barley, fat and spices. That's what's in a black pudding.



Go and watch this and tell me it's in any way worse than whatever the fuck is in a hotdog.

I've known people who wont even eat KFC with bones in because it's "gross". It's kind of disgusting how normalised humans have gotten to eating pure meat flesh and nothing else. I really wish I lived in a culture like China where using the whole of the animal is normalised throughout society.

re: natto

I have also eaten natto and can even tolerate it, but only the way it is (IMO) intended to be tolerated: largely covered up with soy sauce/spicy mustard and over a bowl of hot rice.

By itself? No, fuck that. I also think I have a weak sense of smell, so probably the stench does not really reach me.

My favorite local Chinese place serves chicken feet. The person I was eating with thought it was a colorful euphemism like toad in the hole, and ordered it, then turned green when it arrived and ha ha silly white dude we do not do euphemisms here. I decided to try it to show willing and not waste five bucks, but my teeth went through cartilage and my entire body was all NOPE.

I had duck's blood soup at a Polish restaurant once and did not care for it, not because of the blood but because it was sugary sweet and I find most instances of sweet + savory revolting, particularly if I'm not expecting it.

Barley is gross. I'm fine with the blood part.

That's where I got my loathing for it. It looks like maggots and has an appalling squishy texture. No thanks!

Barley doesn't look like maggots, it looks like barley. :/

You must have some chubby ass maggots where you come from. I mean, noodles or rice I can understand, they're a bit wiggly.

White rice looks more like a maggot than barley.

I don't really want a hot dog either. Most of the meat I eat these days is bird and fish, with an occasional burger sometimes.

I mean, it's basically just like any other sausage. I guess if you're not a fan of sausage...


(Not liking barley is seriously weird)

I apologize: I thought I'd made it clear that I was poking fun at the divide between our brits defending blood pudding vs non brits railing against it. I think it's fine! I didn't mean to offend or rile anyone up. And I don't think it's any more or less gross than, say, other sausages.

But I mean, you see the shit I've eaten. I left out the pig offal soup with the big block of congealed blood in it because the offal and soup were actually pretty good. The blood was like liver but not even as good. (I also ate horse liver that other time, but it failed to distinguish itself from other livers.

I was gonna mention shishamo, pregnant egg-filled fish grilled or fried and eaten whole, but I straight up think they're delicious. It takes A LOT to find my disgust reflex.

"Would you like to eat this fish semen"

"Yes"

That conversation happened.

Not that semen isn't a treat any time of day, but a fish's semen? I just don't know.

Did you know that eating certain foods changes the taste of semen? It's true.

Jello squicks me out like nothing else. I do usually purchase things made with gelatin alternatives (yeah pectin) but candy is where I usually slip up, and then I'm stuck going through the whole manufacturing process in my head. Like, every time I eat Taco Bell or something I tend to mentally run through (in graphic detail) all the steps it takes to turn a cow into ground beef. Oddly enough I love bones and don't think twice about picking apart some roadkill to get to their skeletons, but will make dramatic gagging noises if offered a hot dog.

I love me some cod milt and caviar. Milt tacos? Yes please. There isn't much listed here I wouldn't want to try.

That said, I will never again consume natto and I have zero desire to attempt balut.

If you'll happily eat fish eggs, but find the thought of eating fish semen disgusting, what does it imply about you?
