Most national brands of "Diet" soda are sweetened with aspartame, a suspected neurotoxin or "excitoxoin".  Fortunately my local yokel grocery chain's diet soda uses sucralose (Splenda), and I use that.

For more info, check out Excitotoxins:  The Taste that Kills by Russell Blaylock.  Interesting reading about food additives, including the original nasty, MSG (yep, "Chinese Food Syndrome" is real.)

My mother's family was Polish, and they came up with two "delicacies"  that make the list:

Kiszka (as in "Who Stole the...):  Polish blood sausage

Czarnina:  A slightly sweet soup with a stock that is thickened with duck's blood.  Mom's house was near an outdoor market commonly known as the Old Polish Market" in Detroit where live ducks were sold.

Yuck!  Daj mi piwa (Gimme a beer)!

Well, I like perogis!
Me too.  When my dad was still alive he and I would make fresh kielbasa from scratch, mostly for Christmas holidays.

I would think every ethnicity has one man's delicacy that's another man's gross out.

My ethnicity is mostly from all over United Kingdom, but I'm a southernor so things like collard greens, okra, and grits are part of my growing up and I love them! however, many people can't stand these items including other southernors.

Of course!  It took a Southerner to teach this here Yankee how to make proper cornbread in a cast iron skillet with bacon fat, and some Southerners have cursed me for the practice of "eating Bambi" (venison).

Diet coke tastes awful. I'll prefer a regular sugar over some chemical. At least we know what sugar does to the body in the long run. And I never understood those who claims that diet coke taste just like regular?! :wtf:

Yes, I did post about it before and I did eat it. What I did NOT try was Filipino balut (the chicken fetus still in the egg with hair and beak).

Just be glad you can't smell balut from your computer screen. It's the foulest odor from food you can ever imagine. Well no, you can't imagine the smell. It's an odor that's probably created and bottled from one of the innermost circles of Hell then poured over that slimy chicken fetus.

Come on now... you must have had some shitty preparation. I'm not a big fan of duck, but if it's got a nice crispy skin and is med-rare, it is good. I have only had it twice while on vacation at fancy restaurants. Lamb I have quite often, and if you marinade it, all of the gaminess goes away. It's as tender as any beef I've ever had. Once again, it has to be prepared and cooked correctly.

I've always hated lamb, until I had it prepared the right way. My sister knows how to make it (and just as importantly, where to get good cuts of it), so when she makes it I chow down.

And I've had tasty duck more often than not. You can't go into it expecting it to be another version of chicken.

The Asians win, hands down, when it comes to nastiest food.  I saw an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, when he was in Asia, and the stuff he ate.  Good Lord! :o

Every time I've had lamb at a Greek restaurant, it's been awesome.  Very nice change of pace from the typical beef, pork, chicken dishes.  Same with duck.  It's a nice change of pace.

You know what is absolutely delicious?  Rabbit.  I could never kill a rabbit.  Too damn cute.  But I'll eat rabbit all day long.

Yup about Asia. Can't remember where in Asia I saw this but the chef was making a salad dressing type paste out of various spices, vinegar, soy sauce, and ground earthworms. f**k man! Makes Campbell's Soup and blood sausage seem like prime rib!

My dad likes to tell the story about his experience in USAF arctic survival training.  They were "captured" and had to "escape".  Once free they did get a minimal food drop.  Said food drop included one live rabbit.  They tied it to a tree for a few days before someone finally drew the short straw and had to kill it.
