What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Chocolate gravy, hands down -- I just don't get it. DH and MIL (and every other Alabamian I've spoken with) get fighting mad if I even hint that chocolate gravy is just hot fudge under another name, but to me that's exactly what it tastes like. And why would I want to dunk my biscuit, or worse, my eggs, in hot fudge? Just to note, I saw MIL put half a stick of butter in her chocolate gravy and eat that, but there is NO WAY I could ever try that...

I love my chocolate too..but not on eggs.. maybe on a biscuit.

I've eaten fermented shark. Or as I like to call it "putrified" shark. It was only an itty bitty bitty piece, but I'll never try it again. It was horrible!!

I've had the fermented fish that they make in Sweden. It was ok, but I don't really know whether I would want to go through the experience ever again!

For the weirdest thing would have to be bat.

Bats (and a type of mouse that lives by the rice paddies, and dog) are speciality dishes in Manado, which is the area up north on the island of Sulawesi (aka Celebes).

The first time I tried it was here in Java, where the bat was grilled by the beach. The second time a friend of mine brought it down to Jakarta with her from Manado. It was cooked in bamboo, and was very spicy and hot!

I think what they eat are fruit bats. I'll have to ask someone!

I had ostrich meat a long, long time ago. It was just too gamey for me, especially since I was nearly a pescatarian at that time.
