Poll: What's your favorite ODD food?

Hi Everyone:

I thought a poll might add some cheer to the threads area, everyone always likes to share. Anyway, I was thinking this morning about how I adore under-ripe bananas. A little green around the edges is just great, but once they get a brown spot I am saddened and don't enjoy them nearly as much.

What's your favorite odd food?

My boyfriend's favorite is an applesauce sandwich with grated parmesan. I thought it was worth noting. Mine is anything to do with peanut butter.

I love slightly green bananas too! Wow, I thought I was the only one! I also love beets, just love them. Mmm.

And that norwegian goat cheese - jetost? I don't remember how it's spelled. That is so good on wasa crackers.

And eggplant, anything eggplant for me too!

odd food

My favorite snack is definitely odd. My friends would say "eeewww" when I ate it until I got some of them to try it. Now a lot of my friends eat it. My odd snack is a peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich. It really is good. My mom got me started on it when I was little. I said "eeewww" to her that first time, too.

Well, one of my favorite foods isn't odd to me because of myChinese heritage, but I've seen Fear Factor use them in their food challenges because it's more of an ethnic food.

I like "thousand year old eggs"--which are regular duck eggs that have been preserved in a special chemical process. It makes the whites turn a glossy dark brown/black and the yolk turn a dark green. It has a rich flavor which I cannot discribe.

I like eating the eggs sliced and sprinkled with a sauce of soy sauce, vinegar & sesame oil (sometimes with garlic chili sauce or green onions on top). I will usually it it with bowl of rice "congee" (boiled rice porridge) and a type of canned food called "fried gluten and peanuts" (basically it's little balls of wheat gluten fried up, with boiled peanuts and in oil), and another canned fish called "Fried Dace with black beans".

No, it is not particularly healthy food, but It makes me think of my family, so I like having this every so often in the winter time--kind of a quick weekend lunch or a late night snack and sort of a "comfort food" to me...

My favourite odd snack is something I don't really indulge in now since I don't really eat chips anymore but I used to ADORE eating plain chips (ridged or regular) with cottage cheese.

It was salty because of the chips but kinda creamy because of the cottage cheese....Oh man, it was good.
