Absolutely! I always thought new things were the only way to discover things I didn't know I liked, so I try just about anything. I check up on a couple of ingredients because of my allergies, but all else is worth a try! The worst that can happen, unless it's poisonous somehow, is that I'd need a lot of water and mybe a mint or two to get rid of a bad taste!

I like to try new things and see if it is some thing to add to my favorite things to eat.So then you can get a new meal for dinner or a snack... Why not try .Look at what you could be missing out on.....wow!!!!!

I know a person whom he won't eat anything which he haven't tried when he was a kid. He only eats the food he recognises or he have tried, especially when it comes to foreign foods he won't even look at it and say it's yucky. I like to try different tastes of food and eat them when I like it especially the foreign ones, like chinese and filipino foods.

I like to try new food especially food from other countries. When I eat at a foreign restaurant, I always order a dish that I don't know, because I want to try something new. I tend to pick the most exotic dish that I can find. Sometimes I don't like the food that I get, actually it has happened a few times that I have been almost unable to eat the food that I chose, because it was...well, not very delicious. That hasn't stopped me from trying new food, though. I think it is worth taking the chance, and sometimes I have discovered some really good food.

My dad appraoched all food with the idea "Don't knoeck it until you try it". He was a firm believer in the fact you could not know whether or not you liked something if you had never tried it. I still feel that way, so I will try anything at least once.

I live in the UK and am used to our diet of meat and two veg, or even some junk food, burgers etc. When I first got to know my wife she lived in the Philippines. When I went to visit her I was worried about the different diet and was hoping that there would be fast food outlets to satisfy my hunger. However, I decided to try the local foods and found that although I didn't always know what it was I enjoyed the different variety of tastes and sensations. I always approached the foods with an open mind and thought that if it was ok for them it should be ok for me too. There were some that I didn't like, but some which I would never have tried if I'd know what the ingredients were that I really enjoyed. My wife now lives here in the UK and she has gone through the same process. I employed the same technique with her that I did when my children were young, if you don't try it you don't know whether you like it or not. She is now enjoying some of our foods that she never thought she would. Strangely we tend to eat mainly Philippine style foods now, but that is because my wife is such a good cook. I think that what we need to remember is that everyone has different tastes and until you try something how do you know if you like it or not?

Yeah I love to try new foods. I like to try things that are based from all over the worlds, and I like to try new foods so that way I will know of new elements to use when I am cooking for myself or for someone else.

I LOVE trying new foods. Now I have to say, if someone asked me to eat horse or dog because it is part of their cultural cuisine, I wouldn't do it. I just can't eat either one of those animals. But I'll usually try anything once. Even if some of the stuff ends up being gross, I at least try to give it a chance. lol
