I'm sitting here eating lime Jello and I'm both repulsed by it and enjoying it at the same time.

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?

I meant more along the lines of foods you eat because you like them, but at times you hate them. Like maybe something has a wonderful flavor but the texture keeps you from enjoying it.


Another example for myself would be ice cream/frozen yogurt. I love it but will only eat it if it's loaded with toppings but I hate milk and if I can taste the milk I won't eat it.

Menudo? Always wondered what happened to them. I guess they got eaten.

Crab legs...they gross me out having to crack them and pick out the meat but it is worth it for that succulent bit of King crab.

I always thought menudo looked good, but I'm not interested in trying it.

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.
