Hideous taste experiences.

Recommended Posts

I have had two hideous taste experiences this week.....one a moment ago when I tried a Pickled Walnut. Bleeeeuw :vom:

 

Never had one before.....and will never have one again. :lol:

 

It reminded me that a couple of days ago I had the tiniest morsel of a goats cheese called St George.

 

It smelt like a rotting corpse.....my sister and I recoiled when she opened the package. :shock:

 

It was the worst, strongest, most indescribable flavour I have ever experienced. It tasted worse than it smelled ...which I didn't imagine possible!

 

What is your worst taste experience?

 

:lol:

gosh, hard to recall but I did have a raw herring in Amsterdam once which was pretty gross but I finished it :D

 

They have stalls in the street selling them, like we have burger vans. So much more healthy but an acquired taste!

I like most cheeses but this just smelt and tasted like nothing I would ever want in my mouth! It stank the house out!

I love fish (despite what I said about raw herring!) my favourite is kippers or peppered mackerel but DH won't let me eat it when he's in the house as the smell makes him feel ill. :roll:

I love trying new food. I even contemplated trying a meal worm the other day. :shock:

 

Well, the chickens seem to love them!? :lol:

 

I think it's a trait I picked up early on, my mum said she caught me eating cat food out of the cat's dish when I was about 3!!!

 

What??? My feathers are very shiny! :lol:

I can't bear the smell or taste of gin or porridge, which shows how much I love my chickens because I make them a big bowl of porridge every day :vom::vom: The worst recent taste and smell experience I have had is Kim Chee, basically a Korean pickle made from rotting cabages :evil: DH is addicted to it yuk it stinks the house out, I make him keep it and eat it in the garden shed :(

I tried Stinking Bishop cheese last year because foodie programmes raved about how it was a bizarre yet amazing flavour.

 

It was foul.

 

I like most cheeses but this just smelt and tasted like nothing I would ever want in my mouth! It stank the house out!

Multiply that by a factor of 20 and you have an idea what St George was like! :shock:

 

Tess....I'm with you re the gin......tastes like lavender water smells to me. :?

 

I always used to eat Kim's (childhood best canine friend!) food and biscuits when I was little!

 

I have a cold wet nose. :lol:

I adore smelly mouldy cheeses but I was brought up on them, so not a shock to the system for me. For me its over-processed artifical things that turn my stomach

I had a teryaki chicken :oops: Subway with my kids recently and managed two bites it was the singular most repulsive thing I've eaten in a long long time.

the worst thing i have eaten is baked beans and peas come a close second, the smell of baked beans is just gross and the taste is rank. paul loves them, i cant even open a tin of them for him.

 

i was in germany a few tears ago and had a savory struddle, i got aboult half way through and found that it was infected with peas. the germans had a bit of a suprise as i started heaving in the middle of the street.

 

when i was in hong kong i has some skewered thing, to this day i have no idea what i ate. tasted ok, but i dread to think what it was.

 

a note for poet! herring cooked in sweden is just loverly, a light batter is just wonderful. pickeled herring in a a nice sweet vinegar is fab.

I love nearly all food (which is why I am constantly saying I need to diet :roll: ) but the only thing that was really yukky was bean curd in China - it looked exactly like creme caramel - with the caramel sauce on it but tasted a bit like beef broth - yuk!

 

 

bluuurrrgh :vom:

 

that's awful when you think something is going to taste one way, your brain gets ready for the taste and when it hits your tongue and it's totally the opposite, makes it ten times worse!

My parents did a lovely starter - large mushrooms stuffed with goats cheese and wrapped in pancetta (I'd leave that bit out for you Em!)

I LOVE goats cheese and blue chees and soft cheese and hard cheese and cheesey wotsits.........

 

I just love cheese!!! :D
