TBWCYL Day 57 - Face Your Fears

Today is 'Today, try food that scares you' so I went to the store and bought some of what I consider to be the nastiest food you can eat. Here is what I found

Sardines: My grandfather use to eat these on crackers but it always disturbed me that you could eat a tiny canned fish with the skin still on it. After smelling them, I still hold to that.

The fish itself didn't taste to bad, aside from the fact I was unclear that there were bones in it. Two forks full was enough though. I can see the appeal of the crackers. It had a smoky taste that started with the flavor of Tuna but just kind of sat there. I could eat this again if I had to.

Green Olives: I don't know why I have such an irrational fear of olives but when Diana and I first started dating, I lied to her and told her I was allergic to olives just because I didn't ever want to see them on food. She believed that for almost a year before I finally fessed up.

Why the hell would someone eat one of those? That was salty and disgusting. I am gagging just thinking about it.

By the way, has anyone ever noticed that the back end of an olive looks like a butthole

and the front looks like an uncircumcised penis? Try eating an olive now!!! Ha!

Black Licorice: There is nothing I hate more than Black Licorice. I don't drink Jager because it is similar in taste, I don't eat jelly beans because of the black ones, and I don't know why chewing road tar is such a popular past time. But, I decided that this is one of those fears I should face. The candy resembles a rubber tubing, with the cut of the strip even going so far as to have blade marks on it.

I wasn't impressed with the flavor but it wasn't nearly as bad as I make it out to be. It was hard to swallow though.

That is all,
