My current girlfriend when I took her out to eat would it. She also would get kids meals at fast food resteraunts. Let's just saying she has expanded her diet hanging around me over the past few years.

I guess she couldn't handle me making fun of her everytime and gave in. Now she is at the level of "picky eater" that you ladies claim to be


And maybe you're one of those ladies that will put anything in her mouth, if a boy asks her. Oh, that's your gf. Frankly, I would have told you to shut up.

Holy Batman, your grammar is bad in that post.

The only thing you've proven is that you have some unexplained aggression towards people who are set in their ways. I mean, if I can buy a steak or a snake, I'll buy a damn steak. And I didn't get mad at all, so I don't know what you're talking about. You attacked me, I just responded.

But this is all silly so let's just forget about it.

Bear was very similar to beef pot roast IMO. Wasn't all that great.

I've also had alligator and thought it was good. I'd like to try snake.

Frog (tender and fishy)tastes way better than snake(boney and metallic) or alligator(chewy and fishy)

So far, I think Option 2 in the poll is proving somewhat prescient.

95% of the things people are talking about in this thread as exotic or esoteric are everyday fare for huge swaths of people. Shoot, some of the things mentioned "Yep, I've tried that" are part of my standing online order form from my online game butcher. They just aren't all that uncommon.

Since the first page, I don't think there's been a mention of a single item that's considered unique even in its own culture. People are talking about game animals as if they're this cutting edge product that only the ultra-adventurous would even contemplate eating.

Exactly, challenging yourself to not have a weird fear of food and be full of excuses that are all BS

i dont think that i've been even hinting at that but the crux of this is the fact that people stick to megastore offerings of food product. chicken, cow, pig, etc and there is rarely deviation from those staple proteins. this country has pigeonhole'd its variety of foods by what bigger business considered to be easier to mass produce. their palates have narrowed accordingly. while it may not be adventurous by worldly standards to eat duck confit, for example, in america it isnt very common.

It reminds me of the excuses that obese people make about food

"Lettuce upsets my stomach and I can't eat vegetables"

Maybe that is because your body isn't used to a varied diet and it may take some time to adapt to eating healthy?
