Are You Adventurous?

I'm not referring to extreme sports or camping, what I'm talking about is being adventurous when eating food. Are the type of person who wants to try new stuff even if they do not sound or look appealing or are you the type who sticks to conventional food? As for me, I think I'm a little in between. I do like to try new dishes or different kinds of food but if it does not look good, I will pass even if they say it is actually good. I have tried different ice cream flavors like Wasabi, Chili Chocolate, Beet, and Chocolate with Tomatoes and so far, I liked them all. I am not a fan of frog legs, and crocodile meat. They are just icky. I tasted horse meat and ostrich and they were okay but would rather eat beef and chicken instead of those mentioned. How about you? What was the weirdest food you have ever tried?

Yes, I like to try new food all the time

It depends I love to cook and eat so I like to try different food but if it smells different and looks different I will be hesitant

Me too. When I hear that the main ingredients would be odd and weird like crocs, snake, and the like, I don't want them.

I will say I am adventurous in eating as long as I stay within the bounds of traditional food sources. I am not willing to try anything with insects, reptiles, etc.

Ewww...insects, I loathe them. :(

yes as long as the ingredients are recognizable I'll give it a go but I won't eat anything too hot and spicy

Tuffy06 I've have tried ostrich, fried ants and guinea pig in the past, I would say I am adventurous, but since changing my diet I have reduced my meat intake a lot.

I would consider myself to be slightly adventurous, food-wise. I'll try some odd things, but I draw the line at certain meats (animals that I think of as pets, such as dogs or horses, or other animals that draw a similar visceral reaction from me). For reasons that I myself don't understand, I balk at the thought of veal (baby cow), but I have no problem with lamb.

There is this time that i was told nettles are vegetables and i had to look for them and cook them to be sure. That is adventurous

I am not that adventurous in trying odd foods. I stick to regular foods and concerning steak, it has to be cooked well or I wont eat it.
