How reluctant are you to try weird-sounding foods? (such as chocolate crickets or anything else like that)

I will try anything! I LOVE so many foods and that is because I have been willing to take risks when going to restaurants and ordering foods that I normally wouldn't eat. I guess I wouldn't eat chocolate crickets or anything like that, but if it looks at least halfway appetizing, I will try it!

Best thread title ever, btw!

People who are too reluctant lack any and all sense of adventure!
If you never get out of your comfort zone it will start to smother you.

Not very! I'm a vegetarian, so I have to be pretty careful about eating things that are unfamiliar. I was at a picnic once and was eating a fruit salad someone had brought, and realized that there was shrimp in it - so really, I can't trust much of anything unless I make it myself.

If it's a strange animal or a strange way of preparing something then I'll try it, but I refuse to eat certain parts of animals like pig feet, any kind of intestine, or any tongues. Chances are I've eaten strange parts of animals before because they were ground up and mixed in with other parts, but I didn't think about it. I didn't look at a hot dog and go "Mmmm, pig ears", whereas I've had the chance to decline eating an actual full pig's ear.

I am a bit adventurous but still very safe, I dislike seafood, curry/spice and spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, capsicum, bleuch vegetables. Ok i'm not very adventurous at all :$ My tastes are Western and bland, I'll handle new things on a case by case basis. Frogs and crickets no, sorry Frenchmen

Another factor on whether I try food is where I'm eating, if it's at a friends place I will at least attempt to eat all of whatever i'm given out of sheer politeness, even if I'd turn my nose up at it at home.

I'm really picky when it comes to food, so I don't eat things that I'm not familiar with or if it doesn't look appetizing. Chocolate crickets does sound tempting, though.

Most vegetables never seem to get my tastebuds going, probably due to how bland they taste. But I do remember I once used to hate Indian food until I eventually tried some and I love it. I even remember when I used to hate spinach, and then suddenly loved it but I guess the iconic Popeye cartoons did play a part in that lol. And who ever new macaroni cheese was so yummy when I used to despise the meal myself.

^ That. If something feels weird, I will not eat it. That goes for how something looks or smells, too.

I have to avoid some food because of allergies, but otherwise I don't care that much. Apparently my father actually got me to eat chicken hearts when I was a kid. I:

Did you say... chocolate... crick-


I only try new, weird food if I at least almost know what's in it :p Not a very exotic eater, I'm not, no. I would never eat a bug. It's one of my phobias. Omg, shuddering here.

I'm a vegetarian so I have to know what's in my food before I eat it, and since most "exotic" foods are animals that don't normally get eaten I'm usually okay with trying new and weird things as long as they're veggie-friendly.

I don't mind trying out strange/exotic foods, I don't know I may like them, I might not, I won't know until I try them. I try to keep an open mind if its about food.

As long as it looks edible, I can eat anything. I'm turned away by delicacies that involve endangered animals, like shark's fin soup; I used to eat it whenever I went to a Chinese restaurant, but not anymore, after I learned how important sharks were to the marine ecosystem.

I'm always adventurous when it comes to trying new food. I've tasted "doenjang jjigae" once, which is a Korean stew made with vegetable and fish. It was spicy, but at the same time, it also tasted kind of sour. I didn't think I'd like it at first, but I did. Their "seolleongtang," a soup made completely out of ox bone, was also pretty good. I know it sounds bad, but I'm pretty sure that you'll like it, too, if you ever decide to give it a try. ^^;;

I am extremely reluctant on weird-looking food like Mexican food, Chinese food, red meat, and seafood. The more reluctant I am with them, the more likely I'll lose weight for eating the only food I eat.

I'm not very adventurous when I'm dining out. I always order the same thing and I'm pretty reluctant to changing that.

I am kind of picky and will not eat any meat that tastes/feels rubbery, gristly, or too raw.

I tend to stay away from exotic foods unless they look attractive.

I love vegetables and anything that looks bland because usually I know it just tastes green and good lol.

I went out with my family a few months ago to a Mexican restaurant and I decided I'd have a go at trying something 'different.' I ordered something along the lines of Mole' Pabalano; and my god was it terrible. It was chicken breast with chocolate and some weird-ass spices. Haha, safe to say that I'm not going back. Ever.

I'll usually try new things, but only if it's with others or whatever. I would draw the line at bugs tbh. I can't do that. I don't even want to look at them, let alone eat them.

I'd TRY anything as long as it was safe to eat.
Would I eat a whole dish of it? Not sure. I guess it depends on if I like it to begin with.. and if I like it, if it was healthy to eat a whole serving of it (I'm talking about crazy fattening mealtime cookies baked into other cookies and deep-fried sort of stuff.)

There is one exception: Spicy. I will not try hot peppers or anything that I know will be too spicy. I am super sensitive and it physically burns my tongue if I have spicy food (scratchy for days!) and I just rather not.. as I don't know how badly my body will react to it.

Also as it stands.. the only thing I'm iffy on eating is scorpion. I'd even give eating tarantula a try if given the opportunity (and when I know it's cooked properly) but.. scorpion just sounds inedible to me.

Most vegetables never seem to get my tastebuds going, probably due to how bland they taste.
What type of veggies are you eating? They are ANYTHING but bland if you season and cook them properly. Are you like.. just steaming everything without salt or something?
