Oh yeah, that too. I hate eggs. I do give myself an occasional egg facial, but they never go in my mouth.

Chili - messy, but good.
Raw oysters - gross, but great (especially with beer)

No--these aren't actual/real human heads. Rather, this is a severed head cake.

I'm on the "milk is gross but I like dairy products" wagon.

I guess if you really think about it, most foods made with or of animal products are kinda gross. Chicken ova? Yum! And speaking of chicken ova, I hate the way cooked eggs smell, but I like the way they taste.

OK, now I'm off to make some Jell-o ...

Hotdogs. Add cheese and bacon, and you have a food that is both terrible and awesome on many, many levels.

I feel the same way about chicken and cheese. I think both are vile, vile foods but can be good depending on their temperatures, how they're prepared, etc.

What are some other examples of foods that are disgusting but also delectable?
Tongue. It looks gross in raw form and not much better when cooked, but it's really good when you bite into it.

A few foods that I like and dislike at the same time: bleu cheese, corned beef, plain yoghurt, caraway rye bread, braunschweiger, salted sunflower seeds, pickles, and Miracle Whip dressing. To name a few!

I'm getting more and more turned off of Jell-O. I've been on a kick lately, but I think I'll take a break. I'm starting to get grossed out by the thought of gelatin. Even more so after I gave my cats some chicken scraps today. The chicken had been in the refrigerator all day and a bit of gelatin was starting to form.

I agree 100%. I pretty much have a plant based diet just because so much grosses me out. I do eat chicken. It just depends on how it's prepared. I'll eat turkey burgers but they have to be cooked on an outdoor grill. I'm not big on seafood either, though I'll probably have it tomorrow. I do like sushi but mostly because of the rice texture, the ginger and wasabi. Come to think of it, I'd probably be happy with just rice sushi.

That head cake is awful!

It reminds me of this dead Lenin cake:

I remember watching a show once on The Travel Channel. I think it was somewhere in South America. There was a woman who had an outdoor lunch stand set up in an area where there were a lot of workers. Her specialty was some sort of soup. I thought it looked delicious with its nice tomatoey looking base. Only it wasn't tomato but a bucket of pig blood. Had I not known it was pig blood I probably would have tried it if I had the chance. Though just knowing is absolutely stomach churning.

I'm surprised you were enticed rather than sickened by a bucket of pig's blood. It would definitely have made me nauseous!
