    I could. I’m pretty liberal about trying new things. But if I tried it and didn’t like it, I wouldn’t finish it. I’d just kind of pretend I’m eating it.

  3. Vicki says:

    Im the same as you Joy I would try it.

    I would try a little nibble as long as it was vegetarian and didn’t include mayo!!

    It depends on how scary it looks and how important it was to please the host. Once when I was dating a Chinese man, his mom came to visit and we went to an “authentic” Chinese restaurant. Pretty much everything was weird to me. There were little fish that still had heads attached. That was to prove, by the look of the eyes, how fresh they were. The correct etiquette was to rip off the head and eat the rest of the fish. I did that with no problem. However, I politely declined to partake of the dish whose name was Chinese for “intestine.” Just couldn’t bring myself to do it.

    Depends what was in it. However having said that, my wife & I were invited to some friends who were a French couple’s house for Escargot because Michelle asked them if they really ate snails. I was very cautious but did in fact try one, then another, then another. I couldn’t get enough of the tasty little critters. They had been baked in garlic butter & were surprisingly tasty.

    I would try but I wouldn’t force myself. Do they have a dog?

    I’m pretty adventurous, but it would also depend upon what’s in it. Haggis, for example, is a traditional dish in Scotland, made of the “innards” of sheep (liver, heart, tongue, chopped up and stuffed – with spices, of course – into the sheep’s stomach, then boiled for a while as if that’s supposed to improve things.). I cannot stomach liver, and as far as I’m concerned, if something is designed to rid the body of toxins, why would I then want to EAT it?

    So, yeah, some things, regardless of how they look, I’ll eat. I, myself, make a frying pan lasagne that looks like someone got sick. But man, is it yummy! But if the main ingredient is something that I don’t like, I’m much less likely to try it.

    If it didn’t make me want to gag looking at it…I’d try it. I don’t know what I’d do if it did make me gag…I’d feel bad but that’s something I have no control over. And once I do gag I will throw up if I eat it and I would not want to do that…that’d be even more embarrassing!

  12. Gary says:

    I would try it because I like to try new foods and I wouldn’t want to sound rude. I would let them know that I have never had it though so if I didn’t like it I could nicely let them know that I don’t care for it.

  13. javajunkee says:

    would depend. If I looked at it and my gag reflex kicked in I would have to politely decline…if I could get past that I might try it.

  14. Tosha says:

    It would depend. There are some textures I can’t tolerate no matter how hard I try. If it smells funky or has a weird texture.. its not gonna happen..
