Have you ever gotten weird looks when you mention a food you love? Everyone has their own preferences, so some people enjoy foods that others consider disgusting. In an online discussion, several people shared some examples of foods that, although many consider gross, they can't get enough of.
1. Grilled Eel
Unagi sushi is a delicacy in Japan. However, it's less common in other countries, including Denmark. “Grilled eel (Unagi sushi). I live in Denmark, and each time I mention it, people get grossed out,” one person shared.
Sauerkraut is a popular side dish in many countries made by fermenting cabbage. It has a sour taste that some people don't like. “What makes my love of sauerkraut weird is that I absolutely hate pickles,” an anonymous person commented.
3. Chicken Liver
“Chicken liver. Growing up, my grandmother would fry it up so nicely,” one woman shared. Although chicken is widely enjoyed, the liver is one part that most people tend to avoid.
“Sardines, they're seriously not that different from tuna,” someone commented. Some people enjoy eating them, but others find their intense flavor, texture, and smell unappetizing.
5. Peanut Butter on Pancakes
Peanut butter is an unconventional pancake topping. While some people find it gross, others might find it a delicious combination. “I like peanut butter on my pancakes instead of butter, and that grosses people out,” one woman said.
Sashimi is a raw fish sliced thinly and served with soy sauce and wasabi. While some people prefer their fish cooked, others love the taste of raw fish. “Sashimi. I just like raw fish more than cooked fish,” an anonymous person said.
Durian is a tropical fruit popular in Southeast Asia and commonly known for its pungent smell. While some people describe it as smelling like rotten onions or gym socks, others consider it a delicacy. “Durian. It smells so good,” one person said.
8. Bone Marrow
“Bone marrow. Not broth but the marrow spread on bread with a touch of salt and pepper,” someone remarked. Although bone marrow might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of delicious foods, it's a delicacy for some people.
9. Pickled Bologna
While it might sound strange, pickled bologna is actually tasty, according to some people. “Pickled bologna. You can buy it in ‘ring' form at many grocery stores. I highly recommend it,” an anonymous person commented.
“Beets. I like the taste of dirt, I guess,” one woman commented. Many people can't get past the earthy flavor of beets, but for others, it's an underrated vegetable.
