Writer's Block: Snack attack

What food would you never put in your mouth for any reason, and why?

Balut. Casu Marzu. Bugs.

Because "throwing up" is very low on my list of Fun Things To Do!

Meat. I'd prefer to grow it from the raw materials. LOL :)

Had a close call a couple of weeks ago at Subway (sandwich shop) with a trainee staff member. As usual I asked for a veggie patty, but when she took the slabs of... whatever... out of the microwave and put them on the bread I noted immediately that they weren't right. I asked "Are you sure those are veggie patties?" She replied "They should be." (Alarm bells rining in my head). I asked her to check. I was right; she hadn't read the label on the food bin and had only been guessing. Start again!

Glad you were on your toes. "Should be" is always a red flag, just like someone saying "whatever."

Well, being on my toes a lot is something a macropod has in common with a lupine, so I guess I've just found out something else I have in common with Florence Ambrose.

In my case though it's just natural for someone who has both OCD and a vegetarian diet to be cautious. Subway especially, as they seem to delight in sneaking those dratted jalapinos into my sandwiches after I explicitly tell them not to.

I also scrutinise the ingredients of every product I buy at the supermarket. I was delighted with one of the christmas gifts from a work colleage this year; she found a brand of jelly sweets that uses glucose syrup instead of gelatine.

McDonald's hamburgers! I can tell you some horror stories about those, including hair and bugs where the food should be.

Yeah but a double Chizzboiger is only £1.39... two of those and the spot is well and truly hit, if you need a junk McFud fix...

Naga jolokia. I like some spiciness, but that's too dangerous.
