Has to be considered actual food in at least 1 culture, or made entirely out of foodstuffs.

I'll start. It was technically a drink.

1 shot Tabasco Sauce Habanero
1 shot hyper cheap tequila
1 shot soy sauce.

I don't recall any terrible things I've eaten off the top of my head. I've had jellyfish, which didn't taste bad but had the weirdest consistency and mouth-feel. A friend of mine also tried to get me to eat pickled chicken feet, and while I do love to try all types of things, seeing a tiny foot was not appetizing at all.

My father, however, had a terrible one. While on a business trip (still in the US, though), he and a coworker went out to a local chinese restaurant for dinner. The waitress there, unfortunately, didn't speak a word of english. Instead, she held up pictures of entrees and made pointing gestures and the like. I don't know exactly how the decision-making process went, but they ended up choosing what looked like meatballs with various vegetables and rice. Little did they know that they ordered not meat balls, but ball meat. Just let that sink in. Buffalo (or cow, I forget which) testicles. This was not realized until the first bite was taken. The worst possible adjective to describe meat arguably is spongy, but that's exactly what it was. To add insult to injury, it turned out to not be one of those "well it sounds/looks/feels gross, but tastes fine"; it was terrible.

And he also ate cow tongue as a kid, which he enjoyed, but the thought gives me the willies.

In Russian, we had to do a presentation involving food and a recipe. Someone did a cake and brought in samples.

I only took a very small bit. It was only until it was in my mouth that I realized I hadn't understood a few of the ingredients. I'm still not sure what it was (fairly sure the offending pair was sour cream and cream cheese), but I've never taken three minutes to force a small bite of cake down my throat. Absolutely disgusting.

Absolute worst? One teaspoon of dried coffee crystals (of some sort, I don't remember which) combined with crushed garlic.

It was just horrible. I actually didn't eat it, I spit it because it was so disgusting.

I wrote this for a friend, years ago, on eating uni:

"Self, you should try some sea urchin."

It cost $15 which is pretty fair for anything at Japon and I'm an
adventurous eater, from now on I can say I ate sea urchin.

http://worms.zoology.wisc.edu/urchins/S ... osome.html

Did you know that a sea urchin is, on average, 425% wang? Urchins'
sperm has wangs in it. Which have sperm in them. Sometimes,
pre-loaded with wangs and sperm.

At first, I thought it tasted like brown mushrooms, with the
consistency of shit that I've had to cough up lately. That's when it
hit me: the Japanese invented bukake. It hit me like a jug of
room-temperature come to the face, down my face, in my hair and shit,
and stinking up my clothes. In my mouth, anyway. I ate nads,
chilled, with lemon and wasabe. Three fucking ounces of balls,
microscopic epidermal layer sack and all, because I wasn't going to
waste my money (pride) by not slurping up the whole fucking tray of
spermsponge.

Next time you decide to try a Japanese spread of echinoderm-chowder or
some other Japanese shit, remember, they probably have some porn for
that too, with a meal and sake to go with it.

When I finished, I asked for my prize. The waitress didn't get it. I
should have my photo hung up on the wall.

Sounds like they were just prepared badly or something. Goddamn tasty every time I've had them.

So far, the worst thing I can recall is kimchee. I'm just not remotely a fan of the stuff.

Cow udder, many years back, at a local parrilla (BBQ joint) with a friend's family. I wasn't even sure I wanted to try it, and for good reason: the texture was not unlike purée, it grossed me out to no end. Never again.

You have got to be joking. Kimchi is insanely delicious. Also, I have never found any kind of food really repulsive, I guess. But then I have never had any kind of insects, IIRC.

Kimchi is fan-freaking-tastic. Add to rice? Delicious. Add to Ramen? with an egg? OM NOM NOM My Korean friends are always suprised when I tell them I actually like the stuff.

I thought of one that was very unpleasant. A whole clove of fresh elephant garlic (the huge one). Peel, pop in mouth, chew, swallow. Wait 5 minutes. Vomit.

I believe you may be thinking of pashka, which I personally find delicious. It's mainly cream cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream, mixed with sugar, nuts, and fruits. Been a while since I had that.

The worst thing I've ever had was Thanksgiving dinner leftovers at a friend's house. It's hard to explain what made it so bad, but it was baaad. The worst part was some Indian style gravy she made from a packet; before that I liked Indian food--I feel nauseated at the mere thought of it now. I threw up afterwards, though I think that may have been from a devilled egg I ate which, it was later revealed, had sat out all night.

The worst stuff I ever ate was everything at that youth hostel in Heeg.
I don't know why, but everything they served just tasted nasty; and I wasn't the only one who said that. Actually everyone complained about the food. And about occasional boogers, not in the food, but sticking to a plate.
It took us some time to find out that, while the cheese and the salami were disgusting did you eat them alone, the respective disgustingnesses seemed to neutralize each other when you added them together on one piece of toast, creating a rather bearable food item.
But the cooked food? The vegetables were so overcooked, they were one minute short of puree and devoid of any identifiable taste. The meat tasted just odd. I don't know how to describe it.
I spent a whole dinner giggling like a madwoman because for some reason I got the idea that those evil youth hostel people were homophobics who served us the cooked asses of poor gay people. That totally grossed out the other girls at my table. My best friend still utters abusive vocabulary whenever we remember that trip. I think it was worth it, though :-D

It isn't common for me to strongly object to a food item. Sure, occasionally I have found myself not particularly enjoying something (cf. 'dorm food'), but that's about it.

There was one meal I remember, though, at a cafe in Paris with my family. The main course was fine; I can't remember what I had, but I'm fairly sure I enjoyed it. For dessert, we decided to try two of their specialties: apple pie, and vanilla ice cream -- both with mushrooms.

Yes.

The food came. I tried some of each.

No, I thought, they couldn't possibly have tasted that bad. I must have imagined it. So I tried some more of each. Yes, they did taste that bad.

Now, I only bring up the mushroom story for context. I would rather be forced to eat one serving of apple-pie-and-vanilla-ice-cream-both-with-mushrooms every day for the rest of my life than finish a piece of toast with marmite.

I do not like marmite.

Well, I thought it was just an unfortunate childhood memory that had put me off marmite. I recently decided to test this hypothesis by buying some marmite and spreading it liberally onto a piece of buttered toast. I went through much the same 'I've got to be imagining how ridiculous this tastes' routine that I described in relation to the mushroom desserts. After a couple of bites, I realized that I wasn't so stupid as a child after all.

I can't say by any means that I'm a picky eater, but when I went on a service trip to a Moscow orphanage a few years ago, I remember that pashka was the first thing that I had to literally choke down. Luckily, its usually served with jelly, so we slathered it with enough of the stuff that I could cover the flavor some.

In second place: My grandmother once put banana and passionfruit jelly (jello) crystals in a bowl and then added the hot water.

And the winner is also from my grandmother: She once served up mouldy meat for dinner. I ate a tiny bit, just to see if I really am immortal.

I've eaten lumpy custard, plums that have been used to prop up a bed for the last few years, slimy ham, wilted salad, those yoghurts made for children, I ate catfood once.

Okay, this requires some backstory. We had a nanny who was a rotten cook- the only things she made well were bacon and challah bread (for an interesting dichotomy).

One of our family favorite recipes is a chicken and noodle casserole. You mix cream of chicken soup, mayo, a dab of lemon juice, and curry powder into a creamy, slightly tangy sauce, then add chunks of chicken and brocolli, then spread it over egg noodles. It's then topped with breadcrumbs and baked until it gets a light crust.

Our nanny replaced the cream of chicken with cream of mushroom (the bad, slimy stuff), added way too much lemon juice, and no curry powder. She then added chunks of freezer burned lamb and boiled, rubbery kelp, then cooked it until the noodles were crunchy on the edges and soggy from the too-liquid sauce in the middle. Our dogs wouldn't eat it.... and it turned me off seaweed forever.

I drank the equivalent of this. My friends, inspired by that comic, mixed cocoa puffs, icing, pixie sticks, expresso, and Mr. Pibb (the kind with extra caffeine). They all tried it, and one of them threw up immediately afterwards. I showed up about a half an hour later. It had been in the fridge, and pieces were congealing inside of the mug. I took my obligatory sip as to not damage my pride. I think it would have tasted better prior to the cooling process.

Sherpa Tea.

It's tea made inside a big bamboo tube, insead of milk they use butter. Instead of butter they use rancid butter. And then add salt.
it tastes like how I imagine tea would if it had been strained through a really old unwashed gym sock. Then soaked in a vat of cheese, and had extra salt thrown in.
so gross.
I cannot fathom why such a thing exists, other than to tell tourists that it's some kind of delicacy and an honour to be offered it.

oh, and then in the same evening we had goat curry for dinner. except the goat must have been made entirely from sinew and gristle, it caught in my throat and made me spew.

I've eaten a good number of disgusting things, but one of the worst had to be the quail egg shooter I had at a sushi restaurant. Raw quail egg + soy sauce + something really spicy. Slimy and burny and WAY too salty.

Lol, butter tea. When I was in Dharamsala, India, my Tibetan host family served me that every chance they got. I ended up getting used to it, but it is not a taste that's easy to love.

Also, I'm pretty sure the butter wasn't rancid. That might have something to do with it.

oh yes, butter tea is one thing (not my favourite, but at least it doesn't taste of cheese). Sherpa tea is a whole world of wrong.
Mind you, maybe they didn't intend to use off butter, and it just turned out that way.....

That's usually a warning sign that it won't be something I'll like. She once made something called "Butter Chicken" which apparently contained neither butter nor chicken, at least not in their recognizable states. It had certain spices in it, I think curry was one of them, that just offset it big time. It was supposed to be some Middle Eastern or Indian dish. Luckily Dad had made some pan bread, so that became most of the meal. It's really good with apple jelly (jam) spread on it.

Jelly, Jam, and Preserves are three different things. Was it a Jelly or a Jam?

/pendantic dickery

Short of a sandwich slathered with mayonnaise when at no point in ordering was I lead to believe said sandwich would have mayonnaise on it, I've never sent anything back because I found it disgusting.

Though I've simply refused to eat free food because said free food had mayonnaise on it. I've claimed egg allergy from time to time, but I always felt bad when I did and have since stopped doing that as.. well, I don't have an egg allergy, and claiming so seems to belittle those who actually do.. as I find eggs to be tasty. Just not mayonnaise.
