Readers Answer Tuesday's Question: What Is The Worst Food You've Ever Tasted In Public?

Yesterday was a short but great post thanks to three of my most loyal readers answers to the most recent of Tuesday's Question in awhile: What is the worst food You've Ever Tasted In Public?

Plus, I created a Tuesday's Question image link to the comment page if you would like to read any of these bloggers past comments or yourself if you've ever commented to Tuesday's Question.

All you have to do is copy the code and put it in your sidebar and it will link to the comments page, instead of having to search through archives to find the comment page. Also, your readers will be able to read your answers by clicking on the link from your blog.

Yesterday, I believe I may have taken the long way around articulating the reason for the brag badge or Tuesday's Question image, so I saved that post in draft.

I wonder if perhaps it's been too long since I posted Tuesday's Question, especially when there wasn't a response to the brag badge post, but maybe it was just too confusing to explain.

Basically, the badge is for bloggers who will or have posted a comment to one of Tuesday's Questions post in the past to post in their sidebar, or for my readers to click on without having to search through archives.

More importantly, the badge is just for fun and not required of anyone to post- it's only a tribute to the blogs who've been loyal commenter's, or bloggers I thought deserved a brag badge, in addition to a way for readers to find their comments-

Anyway, I apologize for my wordiness in that post yesterday trying to explain the images and I hope you have a better understanding of what I was talking about now.

Anyhow, before I keep rambling on here is a great post, and thanks to all of you for reading and playing along:

Again, the question was What is the worst Food You've Ever Tasted In Public?

My first comment is from Sandee at Comedy Plus, who is one of my most loyal Tuesday's Question commenter's, and she tells great stories.

What a great question Ann. I've had lots of bad food in public, but the absolute worst was escargot. Escargot if not done correctly will be tough as heck. You can chew it and it just gets bigger and bigger in your mouth. Too big to swallow and you just can't get it down.

It was a very nice restaurant and I was on a date with a very nice looking man. I was in my 20s and had eaten escargot before. And it was good escargot that just melted in your mouth. I loved all the garlic and the warm French bread. Something wasn't quit right with this escargot.

I chewed and chewed and that little snail just got bigger and bigger. It didn't taste all that good at that point either. I couldn't just spit it out into my napkin. What to do, what to do... I finally just got up and went to the restroom to get rid of the 10 pound snail I had in my mouth.

The handsome man? Well, he had the same problem, but I was so busy with my own issue that I hadn't noticed he was struggling too. He finally just swallowed his whole to get rid of it. We laughed about it, and left the rest of the escargot untouched. The rest of the meal was delightful as I recall.

My husband and I love escargot and our favorite place to partake of this delicious little delicacy is Hazel's. Now I'm hungry for escargot. Have a great day everyone. :)

My other wonderful friend and loyal commenter Dawn from Twisted Sister was the next commenter, who will also make you laugh:

LOL @ Sandee!
I think I was 9 or 10 and it was at my sister's wedding. I ate a mouthful of horseradish while my other sister sat there and laughed at me. (apparently she was waiting for me to try it) I ended up spitting it out on my plate and ran to tell my mother :)


And last, but not least, my favorite cowboy poet,(besides Kris Kristofferson), Robert at From The Roads was the last blogger to leave a comment.

Accordingly to Robert when you're living a life From The Roads the only recipes available to you will make your stomach numb.

I hope you've enjoyed Tuesday's Question and will have a chance to check out the links to these three fantastic blogs. Also, you can click on my new brag badge for these blogs Tuesday's Questions comments they've contributed in the past.

Thanks for reading, and thanks to these bloggers for making Tuesday's Question's return a fun one. Have a great week, and cheers~

After I wrote this post I had a few more commenter's which I'm thrilled about, I just hope they know I posted their comments.

The first is from A Girl For All Status
Isn't that a great name? Anyway here's her comment:

The worst I've eaten is a beetle. My grandpa's specialty which is deep-fried. It was like chewing something crunchy and then something gooey then crunchy again. It was so gross so I had to spit it out. So does that count as eating?

And to answer your question (because I don't think I did in my comments) Yes, it does count as eating- and it really counts as the worst thing you probably ever tasted. (smile) Thank you so much for a great comment~


And Monique Blue at Simply Quotes and Aspirations said;

I don't know when the worst was but I think that for me the worst time to have to swallow something unbearable is in front of the preparer be it a loved one or otherwise.

And now that I think about it I think the worst thing that I have ever had to eaten was something that my little sister made for me when she first started to cook. She was trying to learn how to make beans and rice and packed me a lunch to take to work. The beans were hard and the rice was undercooked too.

Fortunately LOL I was at work :D

(Oh, you were lucky you were at work- and thank you for your comment, Monique Blue. If you would like pick up a copy of the I answered Tuesday's Question image code.)

Excellent comment~

I also saw that one of my new friends Jennifer Robin from the excellent web site Robin's Woods left a comment.

I never experienced anything worth commenting about until I moved to my current location a few years ago. We have a community center where once or twice a year, they have a potluck, and I've only been to two. The first was because I didn't know better, and the second was to see if the first could have been a fluke. Lets just say that some people with some really strange ideas of potluck fare live out here. Most casseroles I couldn't even identify, and had no desire to take a second bite to even try, but the most memorable was a chicken and quinoa casserole that tasted like stale, almost rancid grease. I since found out that anyone who values their health wouldn't touch the food at one of these affairs with a ten foot pole!

Jennifer, next time they have a potluck dinner, you're going to have to be really busy, doing something extremely important, but I guess you've ready planned that out- (L0L)

Thanks for commenting and I'm glad you lived through it~ What great, but horrific imagery, "rancid grease."


Note to readers~ If you would like to leave a comment and pick up the code feel free to do so...if I have my comments enabled, I promise I will get back to you and post your comment. And again, thank you for reading and commenting

That was a great question Ann. I'm still hungry for escargot though. Most folks don't like it, but I thinks it's awesome. Well, if it's cooked right. Hope you are feeling better. Have a great day sweetie. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Ann said...

You know I've never tasted escargot, but it does seem like it would be addictive, whether your prior experience with them was good or bad.

I thought your comment was so funny on this post, and I know a lot of people will enjoy reading it today. I hope you get a little link love from it, if not, I love ya and appreciate you caring enough to ask how I'm feeling.

Incredibly tired, but I'm trying to keep up...Also,I've enjoyed reading my favorite blogs(Comedy Plus)and working some again.

Thanks again for asking~

Huge Hug~

P.S. What do you think of my Tuesday's Question badge? There's no need for you to put it up, I just wanted to know what you think of it. I've been wanting to make a badge for it for sometime, if only to direct people to the comment page easier...anyway I was just wondering.

I loved the story you did through comments over the week-end, that was fun, and I hope you had a great time.

lotsa lovies back~ :))

Dawn said...

It was a good question Ann... I'm always wondering what you are going to ask next!

Whimsy Gal said...

Just wanted to pop by and say a quick hello - have been gone for a b it, but am back and have missed reading your blog :) Hope everything is terrific with you! Hugs!

Monday Morning Power said...

I missed this one. However, for the record, it's a tie between snails and eggplant.

BTW, you're right my badges do look good here. I can't wait to see what you have to complain about and what you are grateful for, pal.......

JaniceNW said...

Nothing specific comes to mind. I dislike very spicey food. I guess I tend to stay away from adventurist food. :)

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"
