I am afraid that I already tried everything that was to try around here. To eat something new I would have to travel to some exciting and exotic places...

I love to try new and exotic things. I enjoy UNI (sea urchin), NATTO (fermented soybeans) and others, but after a serious attempt to find a drinkable almond milk, I have just about given up. The winner of one of the taste tests, MALK Vanilla almond milk, was the best of the bunch, and then only on oatmeal, and I am still not a fan.

Tonight I had my first dish of Hostess Twinkie ice cream. It's good but I'll move on from it in favor of other new flavors to try. To me it actually tastes like frozen a Twinkie and is better than a deep fried Twinkie.

Ohhh, I just tried that a few weeks ago. Not bad, but definitely different. The texture was... interesting.

I like so many foods. I discovered fresh Hatch green chilies last year - I am on the wrong side of the country, so only one store sells them around here. I made two big batches of Colorado green chili and Yummmmm.

Our local Winn Dixie store brought in some hot and mild Hatch chilis a couple weeks ago. I grabbed some of each @ $1.29 per pound. We went back last Friday and they still had some, actually looked like no one else bought any, the only difference, they were $.49 per pound. I basically wiped them out. I roasted them in the basket for my Weber charcoal grill rotisserie, using pecan 1/2 splits for fire.

Glad you found the eggplant hummus amazing. 2 things I can't not stand; I have had hummus a couple of times that were edible. In fact at our anniversary party we had jalapeno/garlic hummus and it was actually pretty good. I have tried eggplant every way imaginable for 50 plus years; just can not eat it.

As for couscous we have them about once every couple of weeks for a break from rice or potatoes. We like flavored varieties or I flavor them myself. Are they a favorite? Nope jut they are a nice break.

Now, I can think of one other thing I just had for the first time: we tried the veggie tots by Green Giant: I will never say never but I doubt we will get them again or not often. Of course we eat very few frozen vegges .

dogboa: Hatch chilies are as good as any chili grown anywhere in the world in my opinion. We get them every summer one way or another. This year a friend gave us 3 huge cans. She wanted to re-pay us for the canned goods, including salsa we have given her.

We are having a church couples group here on Oct 13th for a pot luck. We are serving grilled brats (actually sausages)I have purchased a variety of kinds, one being an apple, maple one. There are always those that like the sweet everything. They are usually those who were raised in upper midwest and that is about 1/2 oru church.
