A picky eater? I was when I was a child but now I love everything except fish. But I do like lobster. Oh I wont eat liver either. Or pigsfeet.LOL And definetly not chocolate covered bugs. When I first met my husband he was a very picky eater. So I told him to try some things after I cooked it. And guess what? He eats it now.I think thats the main problem with picky eaters they dont try it. And the way you cook a certain types of meat makes all the difference in the world. So now share with me are you a picky eater?

Hi TerryZ! I used to be a picky eater when i was younger but when i met my husband, who just love to try anything new even exotic dishes, i began to to try different dishes too. Some i did developed a taste for some international cuisines but well, other dishes just don't sit still in my stomach. haha..Oh, i did try some exotic dishes especially the snake which was prepared without you knowing that it is a snake you are already eating. My husband told me that it is just a fish and i should try it, after a few bites, he laughinly told it was a snake, and i never then touched it again. haha..But to be honest, it taste good, i just got the feeling that the snake will come alive inside me that's why i can't eat it no more. haha..Take care and have a nice day. Take care and have a nice day. :)

Hi TerryZ! You are absolutely right, it does taste like chicken. Maybe because chickens are in their food list. haha..Take care and have a nice day. :)

i am somewhat of a picky eater. i'm with you on not eating liver or pigsfeet. i'll never try either of those either - yuck! haha. but there are actually a lot of things i don't eat. onions for one. raw or in something where you can taste them .. they make me gag. tomatoes i don't like much, but i love ketchup. spinach is gross. i can't think of anything else..but i know there are others! haha. but the chocolate covered bugs i'd try. i'd try any type of bug if it were culture in that country. i sometimes watch bizarre foods on the travel channel &he eats a lot of insects, i think it would be fun. hahaha.

I used to be more picky when I was younger than I am now, as a kid I didnt want to eat anything that didnt come covered in cheese or chocolet or had the color green as its main color. But then I learned to cook well(chef, well)and now I will eat whatever I can make taste good.

I don't think I'm a picky eater. When I was a child, my family wasn't in a good condition. And the food was very precious. We ate everything that can be ate. We had no choice, and we couldn't be a picky eater. Now things change a lot, but I'm still not a picky eater, and the food is still precious in our world. You know, there are so many people dying from hunger in the world every year. How can I waste the food and be a picky eater?

In a way, I am yet in another way, I am not.:P I don't eat certain food so ok, I am picky. But for those food I eat, I don't mind it cooked anyway (though I have my preference of course). If it is home-cooked food, you will seldom find me complaining whether it tastes bad or not.:PP

I am, and have always been quite a picky eater. I don't like red meat, fish or many fruits and vegetables. Anything with a leafy, crunchy texture, like lettuce or onions makes me sick. The only vegetables I actually like to eat are thoroughly cooked potatoes, peas, soy and carrots.

Hello TerryZ. I remember before I was twenty, I used to be very picky, but ever since I started to work and had to eat in the canteen, I became much better. I am no longer picky and appreciate every food my mom cooks. Now I enjoy the food my wife cooks after I got married. Thanks for your discussion. Good day, friend.

I don't think I am a very picky eater. Aside from stuff like liver and pigs feet and eyeballs, stuff like that. I will try almost anything. This year I have tried Indian food and many kinds of sushi. I have found some of my favorite foods by trying things I thought for sure I would hate! Crawfish is a prime example of that. I love being in Mississippi in the Spring during crawfish season. I looked at those little "mudbugs" and thought "No way!" but I tried a few and was hooked! My mom is a very picky eater. She won't try anything.

Oh, do you think whipped cream would go well with chocolate covered bugs? Heheh I'm pretty much an adventurous sort and will at least try different type foods at least once.. I would have never known how great French foods were if I hadn't started cooking French foods for instance. Of course there are some foods I would never want to eat..couldn't eat deer..Bambi complex. Nor rabbit..too cute. I do love fish though, though you'd never catch me eating squid, octopus or snails, don't even like clams except in clam chowder. Oh, and never brains, or tongue or heart..blagh And, of course at least I can say I tried duck and won't be rushing to ever get it again.

When I was in the Navy and stationed overseas, I literally ate my way through Europe. I tried everything(except bugs). I liked almost everything. I don't do that anymore because I keep kosher, but I sure had a lot of fun for awhile!! I never could understand picky eaters. If it is there, and it is not going to hurt you, try it. If it is really yucky or too spicy discreetly remove it from your mouth and go on.

Hi Terry! I wouldn't say that I was. I like many things now that I didn't when I was a kid. Liver is one of them. lol I like it now, chicken or beef really with some gravy too it and some onions. I like many green vegetables, when I was a kid I hated brussel sprouts and asparagus, I eat them now. I like a good variety of food that's for sure. But my favorire meal is steak, potato, salad and dinner rolls. I think I could do that every night! Bay Lay Gray xx

Nope, I am not at all a picky eater - pigsfeet are gross but barbequed chicken feet are pretty interesting. And I love anything chocolate...even bugs! I like everything (almost) and will eat anything. I travel a lot and I love to be in a new place - no matter where it is, whether a big city or a small little spot in the country, developed or third world countries - eating the local food. Well...the only place I have been that was a bit tough for me was Hong Kong. Things were a bit slimy and squishy, which isn't a texture I like, but I still tried everything. I don't like organs generally (liver, brain, or even blood) but I will eat it. Which is funny, because I won't feed my cat anything that is flavored to taste like "liver" or "chicken hearts" or "giblets". Why do you dislike fish? How did you decide to start trying things?

No, I am not a picky eater. My husband was when we got married but now he will eat anything I put on the table. LOL I love fresh fruits and veggies though. When our daughters were small, we had a rule. You had to taste everything that was prepared for a meal. If you did not like it, you did not have to eat it but you did have to taste it every meal that it was fixed. That proved to be a great habit. They are not picky eaters now.
