Mine is a childhood goodie, peanut butter & Miracle Whip sandwich, potato chips optional.

Where do I start.  :-D  I've eaten most every part of most anything that walks or crawls at some point.

If you eat fried shrimp near me and leave the tails, I'll eat them off your plate when you're not looking.  ;D  My favorite part of the shrimp. I like the heads fried too.

Funky, stinky cheeses, hot pickled mango chutney, fish sauce and my love of greens on pizza are not loved by others in this house.  I didn't get a "yech," yesterday, but I certainly got the eye roll when I whipped out a jar of Aleppo from my purse and sprinkled it on my sandwich and fries when we out for lunch.

Kids like pickles in there as do I, pickled jalapenos even better

LOVE me some funky skink foot cheeses and hot or pickled anything. Pretty much anything mention here I'm on it like a dog :-D

All of the above so far. 

One of my childhood favorites that my wife can't stand is the Chinese dried, pulled pork, aka pork floss.

She says she feels like she's eating hair/fur.  It's actually quite delicious on a bowl of rice, or baked inside of a pastry!

Lol, I love pork floss.  I eat it like jerky.  Always goes way too fast.   Forgot to mention shrimp chips or crackers from the asian market.   I've also eaten balut as a kid.  Blood sausage, pigs feet, fermented tofu.  Anyone here had that?  Funky stuff.

It's a "yech!" when it comes from the supermarket because that's how they get rid of about to expire (and expired too, I bet) meat but homemade ground bologna on sourdough is pretty tasty. Miracle Whip, pickle relish, banana peppers, and hard boiled eggs, if you've a mind to.

Squid floss = delicious.  The smell is strong, but the taste is ohhh sooo good.

Anyone here eat Stinky Tofu?  I haven't braved that one yet...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stinky_tofu

Balut was interesting... can't say I crave it, but the amniotic sac was some of the best chicken "broth" I've ever had.
