    Does Johnny Depp qualify as strange?

    I used to eat leaves when I was in infant school. I don't even know what leaves they were! They didn't make me ill luckily.

    Mmm, everything on here sounds tasty and I want to try it all... :3

    Well, for starters, the "weird" things I eat on a regular basis... I eat seaweed daily. Seriously, I can't get enough of it. Bee pollen occasionally. I regularly eat beef liver (sometimes calf liver). I haven't met a seafood I didn't like, but I haven't gotten to try as wide a variety as some other mers here... all sorts of sushi. Scallops, oysters, and mussels as regularly as I can get them. Fish sauce on everything. I love eel as well! I've tried calamari and it was ok, but I still have mental images of the live squids and octopi so I have to get over that at some point haha...

    Elk, deer, buffalo, haggis, many types of sausages and I'm sure I've had black pudding at some point (I had a best friend in high school whose grandparents are Scottish LOL). I put plain gelatin in beef broth as a drink before bed. Pickled eggs and sausage.

    I once had one of those "miracle berry" tablets that makes other things taste all funny - that was kind of a trip!

    Oh, and I eat raw cacao nibs - chocolate in its purest form! That stuff is seriously amazing, I got hooked on it (and raw local honey) when I was a raw vegan.

    Mmm dog biscuits! My fave when I was little were the bone shaped ones!

    Other strange thing I have eaten, I so miss it here in Australia, only ever seen the palm sized ones in the fish shop are blood cockles.

    Oh, and I love organ meat... I grew up in Oklahoma where fried gizzards and chitlins are the norm (though I prefer things like heart or liver just because of what gizzards and chitlins are). Head cheese is also pretty tasty.

    Gah! You're not suppose to eat thousand year old eggs by itself! You eat it with sliced pickled ginger, and in Chinese congee.

    I ate fried wasp larvae for the first time when I went on exchange to Réunion Island for 4 weeks.
    I know this is an old thread but I would like to throw in my two cents!

    Lessee, I have had fried gator slathered in way too much ketchup, and again when a coworker at my last job hunted a 200lb gator and brought some of the meat in. The whole store smelled like fried 'water chicken' within half an hour all day, and it's not a small store.

    I LOVE smoked eel, especially on a sushi roll with some soy sauce on it. Not so much fun if the fillet strips is riddled with the needle-thin bone, but yummy all the same.

    Also enjoy the hunting, and eating of calimari and squid. Our dock draws in a swarm of longfin squid that I'll fish up a half dozen or so of, skin them, clean out the mantle, chop off the tentacles to enjoy seared in a pan with some spices. Roasted straight on an open fire oddly gives the mantle a jerky-like taste. I also find tenderizing the mantle, particularly the fins, helps its edibility. Supposedly there's a way to clean the skin and cartilage rings off the tentacles, but I have yet to figure that out. Was really looking forward to catching some this year to try stuffed mantle, but there were none each time I went to the dock :C

    On a truly weird factor I actually dipped a sugar snap pea in dipping caramel and ate it on a whim. Was surprisingly quite yummy with the crispy juciness of the pea.

    Wow, that sounds like it could really be a topping for pepperoni pizza, thanks for the idea. By the way, an actual classic pepperoni, I mean California-style one, would be neat. The local restaurants still deliver but they are overwhelmed now. I guess it's time make own pizza in my portable oven like this
    So the strangest food I had were fried crickets and octopus...

    Friends, I've never tasted weird food, but I think it's pretty interesting. It's very cool that you had such an experience. Please advise what I can try to really enjoy the taste.

    Hmm, I am an American and it was strange for me to taste German bread, but I think this experience was nice. I ordered sourdough bread here https://www.edelweissbakeryfl.com/ because I wanted bread to be baked following age-old traditions. Surprisingly, it was tasty, so now it is not a strange thing for me. Now I often order German bread there.
