    Earlier today I was eating some chips, didn't look at them, and bit into what had to be the most burnt chip I've ever had the misfortune of coming across in my life. It was like biting an ash tray. :cover: (We need a pukey smiley...)

    Have you had something like that happen recently?

    The closest thing I can come to is this:

    I ate a really large, tasty dinner at a restaurant. Then, I went to the laundromat. I had to bend down to pick up a sock, and happened to burp at the same time, causing the grossest, most chunky throw-up burp I have ever done. Other than that, my pallate has been generally treated to the most undistinguished food. Nothing has been overly tasty, but nothing really that gross, either.

    I tried some Hakarl on a dare. That has got to be the single worst food in existence. For those unaware of its horrors, wikipedia it. It wasn't my first time having it, but this time I didn't have any brennivin to burn the taste out of my mouth.

    Icelandic foreign students can really suck some times.

    Fast-food. I just cleansed my body of yucky stuff and I went and had a doughnut that morning and then fast food. Yuck! Not doing that again!

    McDonald's Sausage McMuffin with cheese.
    I was hungry, I was in a hurry, it was 6 in the morning.
    I decided to pack a sandwich in the future.

    Not recently, but a few months ago I accidently too a sip of a can of coke that had been used for an ashtray that was sitting next to mine.
    I took washing my mouth out with Everclear to get rid of the taste.

    Ugh! That happened to me once as a kid, only it had been used as a spit can instead of an ashtray.

    A Dutch specialty -- overcooked potatoes and peas mashed together until they look like Gerber baby food.

    If you don't have peas, you can use cabbage instead. I think that one's called buskjol.

    People who complain about English food have never eaten Dutch food.

    Dutch baked goods, chocolate and cheeses are superb, but I learned to cook French and Middle Eastern entrees as a matter of self-preservation. :eek:

    I just drank some warm prune juice, like gawd was it gross!:eek:(sorry, I know it's a drink but had to mention it, it was quite ironic to read this a few minutes after drinking it XD).

    I loled when I read this. My roommate doesn't get it...

    But seconded on the last part. Balkenbrij and some stamppotten are pretty good, but I'm still kinda glad my parents learned to cook American. I can always get the cheese and cakes when I'm with my girlfriend's family.:drool:

    Oh, no, I can't abide stamppotten. We have conflicts every time I'm at my mom's about veggies. I want mine lightly steamed or roasted (as do my kids) and my mom wants 'em boiled until there's no food value left.

    Oh, here's a story about the Dutch and how they boil everything. My grandfather went back to visit the family in Gronigen after 65 years of being away from the Netherlands. He brought a bunch of bacon with him, because it isn't something eaten there and he was going to cook it up for the family as a special treat. Well, he woke one morning to the smell of bacon, only to realize that he hadn't gotten up quite early enough and his sister was already boiling it. :cover:
    Suddenly I have the urge to make bankets. :eat:

    I need to find a Chinese grocer -- it's the only place to find decent almond paste here in the South unless you make your own.

    HA! I just hate that it's too soon to frubal you again.

    That reminds me, for some reason, of Jean Kerr's story about the first time her Irish mother made corn on the cob. She boiled it for five hours till the cobs were tender. :D

    Oh my! Every time one of our Dutch relatives came over, they'd refuse to eat corn served at dinner. The only corn they knew was field corn. They thought it was only good for pigs to eat. We never could convince any of them to try it.

    My grandmother used to boil pork chops.

    I really don't do well with too much pork, so it's just as well I took to some cuisine that never uses it. *whew*

    Hahaha, frubal'd. Boiled bacon sounds absolutely disgusting.

    One thing I do enjoy about eating things at my girlfriend's house is that her family stocks tons of curry. I mean, we have it on pretty much everything it can go on. Is this typical, or just silly. There ARE a whole lot of Indonesians in her family, after all.

    EDIT: as for the no corn thing, my mom used to work with some Spaniards who considered it to be pig food too. They wouldn't eat corn chips once we told them what they were.

    Boiled pork chops aren't a lot better. :cover:

    I'm not so fond of curry, except for a curried rice dish I make. It overrides any subtle flavors.

    On the subject of disgusting foods, many comments have been made about haggis, but I had haggis for New Year's while living in the UK for a spell, and I thought it was a good as any other sausage. I don't know why people get so creeped out by it.

    Is this still true in Europe? I vaguely remember someone mentioning sweet corn had appeared on some gourmet menus.

    Though a corn-less Europe may be an asset for me. With corn allergy at least I could eat food there, which is more than I can say about North America.

    Haggis ain't bad at all, but I heard that sheep offal is illegal in America as a food product. Is this true?

    A hamburger at the zoo. Felt quite guilty really and it gave me food poisoning.
