#3 I have tried both escargot and frog legs. And caviar. And octopus. It's all pretty weird, isn't it?

Mommy Cracked said...

Fried Green Beans. Seriously...who came up with *that*? Ha-ha! But they were good, believe it or not.

Awesome Mom said...

#4 Squid that I had dissected only moments before. It was chewy and gross.

nor_lou said...

chicken feet (the acutal claw)

Marilyn said...

Those crabs are so cute! The weirdest food I ever tried was eel it really didn't taste that bad ... but I'd never eat it again. Thank you for the fun giveaway!

Take Care,

Heather @ Desperately Seeking Sanity said...

i don't eat weird foods... typically, but i think the weirdest for me would be tofu... and i liked it!

Snowbird said...

I love the S & P shakers and the towel. They would fit right in with my beach decor.

The weirdest thing I've tried is probably rattlesnake. It gives me the shivers just to think about it!

Joanna said...

Those salt shakers are adorable and they'll fit right in right here by the shore! The weirdest food I've ever eaten... for me it would be a tie between shark steaks (fresh caught by an uncle of mine) and oysters (ICK!).

Enter me, please!

Kyra said...

Crocodile steaks. I'm still not sure if I cooked it wrong of they just weren't good. :)

Michelle@Life with Three said...

The weirdest food I ever tried? Calarmari -- not the fried kind, the raw kind. Thanks for the chance to win!

hetz-junk said...

Amber said...

I hate trying weird stuff so probably the weirdest thing I have ever eaten is fried pickles!

I love this giveaway!! Too cute!!

Qtpies7 said...

I guess squid?? I'm pretty much not a very adventurous eater.

Those are adorable crabs!

Karen said...

I think the weirdest thing I have ever eaten was rattlesnake. Tasted just like chicken. I kid you not.

Suzie G. said...

This stuff is so cute! I'm not very adventurous so I havn't tried anything that I would consider "weird." I eat Seaweed, which some people would think is weird. It really grosses my fiance out when I eat it plain out of the container, but he'll eat it as sushi no problem.

Ginny said...

Blogger is acting up, I guess all these contests is giving it a run for the money. I'm sorry if my comment came through, I keep getting an error page. My answer was kelp. We were given a chance to try kelp & octopus in 6th grade. I only tried the kelp & it was awful!

Tanya said...

Ethopian food. I don't even know what some of it was ...

Pat said...

My hubby and daughter would love your items so enter me. the weirdest food I have tried was alligator. Pat from http://www.homeschoolblogger.com or bbcmoma@yahoo.com

SB said...

Call me silly, but I LOVE THOSE CRABS!!

:)

Katie said...

Definetely would be Circus Peanuts. What are those things anyway?! Yuck is what I think!

Bebemiqui said...

Weirdest food would be intestine kabobs. Great giveaway! Count me in. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

Annabelle said...

The weirdest food I've ever tried was probably Alligator! It tastes like a cross between chicken and steak! It was quite good!

As a child, I also had things like Rabbit, snapping turtle, frog legs and squirrel. Oh and my dh had me try Squid (aka Calamari)...that was yummy too!

The Happy Housewife said...

I guess by far the weirdest thing I ever had was bbq banana rat.
I have also had
frog legs, alligator, calimari, ostrich, and lion.
There are a few really weird things that I have had that I don't remember what they were, just odd and squishy.

jenny said...

how cute realy nice thanks jenny9675309@yahoo.com

Mom2fur said...

I 'lost' my last reply so I apologize if this is a duplicate!

These are too cute! And the weirdest thing I've ever eaten is scungilli. It's a kind of snail. We have to have it in tomato sauce every Christmas eve, or my kids get upset. Me...I think it's gross.
My e-mail is lufmikidz at aol dot com. Thanks!

ohhollyf said...

I love it, too cute.

gunzie said...

The weirdest thing I've ever eaten is crocodile, it tastes like chicken! Thanks for the giveaway!

evenapencilhasfearto said...

Super cute! My favorite food is she-crab soup, but the weirdest food I've ever had is goat. I must admit it was very good!

Marcia said...

Hmm I don't like to try weird foods. I think the weirdest I've ever tried was duck. Weirdest combo would probably be a pickle and mustard sandwich, which was actually pretty good.

baby-dreamer said...

The weirdest thing, huh? Not too long ago, my husband came home with this vegan pizza from the grocery. Obviously it didn't have any cheese on it. In addition, instead of having a tomato sauce it had a sweet onion sauce. As odd as it sounds, it's actually pretty good. Thanks.

Josie said...

Hmm. Weirdest would probably be these little dried fishes that you eat whole dipped in vinegar. Not too bad. lol

Cactusflower said...

The weirdest food I've ever tried was a broccoli and apple pizza -- and yes, it was as bad as it sounds. I love your giveaway idea with the crab salt and pepper shakers -- my grandmother collected shakers and had several hundred sets when she passed away. I'd like to continue the tradition.

jessleigh said...

I once ate an ostrich burger. It was very tasty! Try one if you ever get the chance!

samsakara said...

The weirdest thing would be mussels that I tried on a Disney trip. By the way the crabs are so cute they made me laugh when I seen them!

samsakara@twcny.rr.com

seven said...

Someone already said it, but fried pickles is one of the weirdest things I've ever eaten. So nasty. Those salt & pepper shakers are too cute.

Someone Being Me said...

Too cute. My weirdest food has to be the time I was in Russia and they served us broiled whole cow tongue.

Matthew said...

The weirdest thing was a buffalo burger. I know that is not THAT weird, but it was weird for me. LOL!

My name is Kimberly (Matthew is my son) and I can be reached at hunnyv at optonline dot net.

This is an adorable set!

Erica said...

Haha, those are cute!

Weirdest food, maybe Rocky Mountain Oysters.

bren j. said...

Weirdest food ever tried = Lazy Man's Perogies at a friends house. His mom made them and they were....*shudder*...I can't even think about it.

Three P's in a Pod said...

Hmm, weirdest food I have eaten. It would either be when I was in China..pretty much most of what we had would qualify, or when I was served dinner by a couple of men from Africa...I believe there were parts of a chicken in it I did not know existed and prepared in a way I did not know was possible.:)

If you get a minute, stop by my blog and check out my giveaway - http://threepsinapod.blogspot.com/2008/04/bloggy-giveaway-time.html

Thanks!

Marly said...

Oh, that would have to be a toss up between peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and chocolate covered potato chips. Both yummy! :)

Jane said...

Oh, those are super cute.

JaniceJ said...

Oh that set is so cute!
I am not much for trying new things but I did have a fresh oyster omelete once, and it was very good.

WherestheBox said...

Those are the cutest things ever! I'm pretty squeamish when it comes to new or weird foods, so I would have to say hummus. I know, I'm pathetic.

kraziblinkgurli said...

The weirdest food probably had to be Pina Colada. It tastes like sunscreen smells. I've had frog legs, they taste like chicken. I won't post my email for security, but you have it, right? It should be in your email database.

sourpatch said...
