I've eaten allot of the normal stuff - snake, horse, dog, crocodile, kangaroo, cat, star fish etc, stuff which disgusts most travellers but is actually edible (durian, sturstromming etc) and some more random bits like live scorpion, live octopus, sheeps testicles, millipede, crickets and silk worm larvae amongst others.

And none of them have been particularly bad, and most have been very tasty.

oh, but never, and i mean never, try the black pudding in england, no matter how good those silly english blokes tell you it tastes. blechhh!!!!

I agree, never have black pudding uuurgggggh, white pudding too is just as bad! I would never tell anyone to eat that!

Nothing that I have tried in Asia and Europe has matched the disgusting-ness (is that a word?) of black pudding!

Don't hate on black pudding, it's deeeeelicious! White pudding is also good if you're going down that route of healthy breakfast. Pig snacks are also good (pork scratchings). Finally, if you're in Scotland, try one of the following lesser known but equally common (and tasty) morsels:

Deep-fried Mars bar
Deep fried Pizza
Scoobie Snack - heart attack in a bun.

However, it is advised not to eat these dishes more than once in a year as you may die immediately of a heart attack.

Yum yum yum!

Back on point though... Weirdest dish I have ever eaten was when we ate our own cow (we had a farm/commune affair when i was young). That kind of freaked my brother out more than me but it was still surreal.

Yeah, we've got those here too. There's a fish and chip shop down at Bondi Beach that sells them. Deeeelicious.

Deep fried pizza I'd have to try too....

Oh, and I guess I didn't mention anything weird I've eaten. There's not really too much Aussie stuff thats odd, but I did try pigs blood jelly at this Chinese restaurant over here. Wasn't as disgusting as it sounded, it was actually kinda bland. It just looked disgusting though, all purple and quivering.

Travelled a lot and I am allways open to eat new things. Most of the time it is not the taste that is bad (most of the time is it very delicious) but the thought of eating something.

I don't know what of "strange" food they have in Poland, Lithounia, Latvia or Estonia but I will write this after the summer when I have visited the countries and tasted the food.

Well i dont know whether youd call this weird food or not,

but i had stuffed LAMBS HEART last night for dinner. Different but really tasty.

I live with a Welsh girl so it was her idea and i must say it was different or weird if you wana put it that way.

Almost felt like a bit of a cannibal eating a heart of the plate!!

haha

Jeez - the Scotch must be popping off like flies!

I've always wanted to try a Scotch egg, though. I'm not big on deep-fried anything, but the ingredients sound nice. I once had a "sausage roll in a bap with brown sauce" which was delicious but had way too many calories - although I justified it by driking a carton of 1% milk.

And black pudding is bad. Bad, bad, bad. Quebecers eat a version called "boudin" which is equally nasty.

Scotch eggs are ok although I didn't think they were deep fried, when I made them at school (a very long time ago!) I didn't deep fry mine!

Mmmmm, sausage roll butty (what we in Liverpool call 'baps') with brown sauce, Tway you really have been introduced to the finest food. Also pizza butties and pasta and tomato sauce butties are excellent! I agree lots of calories, but as an occasional treat it's good. I could really eat one now, but as I can't eat wheat anymore I can't!

Hahaha, first off I'm gonna help you not embarrass yourself in future by noting that people from Scotland are not, as you referred to them, called "scotch". The term is Scottish or Scot or Scots. This will help you immensely if you ever speak to a Scot - and I'm not saying this in a patronising way, it's something that really annoys some Scottish folk. It's like calling an American a "septic" or a "YANK" to his/her face. It's not quite as offensive but they'll probably not be too enamoured of you.

And as for your sausage roll with brown sauce - lightweight! There's a reason why Scotland is one of the most unhealthy countries in the EU. There are people at my work who eat roll and bacon w/ brown sauce in the morning, then chips, cheese, salt and vinegar for lunch, and then a kebab (a fatty Scottish kebab) for dinner!!! Some people live on this diet!!! And they wonder why heart disease is killing Scotland. At least they have banned smoking.
