I love black licorice..... and for some reason the licorice haters are very anti-licorice... so self-centered they don't even want it around them....(after their rant...I say that's how I feel about veggies)

love love love battered fried whole gut clams..... could eat a bushel!!

the little red ribs on Chinese menus.....you either love em or hate em...I love them could eat them every day

raw scallops.... use to drag for them with my father....shuck em and slurp them down whole...… couldn't get any fresher......still moving …. mmmm mmmm good

I love lots of "unpopular" foods. About the only things I'm not a huge fan of are cilantro, hazelnuts and chocolate.

I put anchovies on my pizza, eat liver, love beets & Brussels sprouts; I also love black licorice, and slurp raw oysters every chance I get

Glad all you licorice lovers found each other. You can certainly have my share.

I don’t have any particularly weird tastes that I can think of. Pepperoni and pineapple pizza? It’s a sweet/spicy thing, but I know several other people who like it.

Licorice is a big one for me, too--including the European salty licorice. Yum.

Fortunately for me and the other local licorice lovers, there's a classic candy shop just north of the city (Baldinger's Food from All Nations in Zelienople, Pennsylvania) that has an entire area devoted to all sorts of licorice. (That red licorice-shaped stuff is not licorice. "Red licorice"--pfft. )

I'm neutral on licorice. It's not a craving, but I won't spit it out, either. My husband inadvertently brought back a bag of the ammonium chloride salty licorice from Europe, and he won't touch it (and he loves traditional black licorice). I haven't tried it yet, but I might.

Love me some,

Beef liver.
Chicken internal organs (cooked, mostly in a soup or sauteed).
Chicken skin in any form (cooked obviously).
Cilantro (i can eat it by itself).
Fish of any kind, cooked or raw depending on fish. Have not seen a fish or any sea-product I don't like.
Raw pork skin, cleaned of fur by slightly charring it with a blow torch. My grandpa used to raise pigs and it was our treat after a freshly slaughtered pig.
Pickled lard.

I do HATE cream of wheat with a passion. The thought of it makes me nauseated.

I LOVE carpaccio (one of the most delicious things I ever are was ostrich carpaccio in South Africa). I'm very very fond of steak tartare, even though it grosses out others at the table. As a kid, I would steal pieces of raw bacon. I'd still eat it, but know it's not safe.

You guys don't even want to think about some of the stuff I've eaten overseas. . .
Mmm, foie gras. How could anyone not like foie gras?!? But I have to admit the guilt factor is high.
