I love boiled peanuts. It's an Alabama delicacy.
But I found out my friend from India likes them too! She cooks them much better than I do. I always get them a little too salty.
Me too, just love them, especially in winter time. Do you know they are great for our *ahem* intelligence too :biggrin: ?

Actually, it's well known that the majority of people in the UK have never even seen a real orange, just the fake, mechanical ones. Hence the phrase: "He's as batty as a clockwork orange!"

The mechanical oranges arent as tasty as the real ones - I was fortunate to be able to try both. And as for Ivan, it depends what store you went to :tongue2:

How bout olives, do you guys snack on olives? Green ones are the best.

They are if you remember to wash all the gear oil out of them first.

Sliced black olives on salads. Green ones when I'm in a sour mood. I mean a mood for sour things.
 
White chocolate Reeses
Kosher dill pickles
Apple slices w/peanut butter and cinnamon

Another cool snack or munch.... pipitas - salted sunflower seeds. mmmmmmmmmmmmm tasty!! i have some right now... and a kitten.. but the kitten isnt edible.
It is edible, if you don't believe, try one!
 
You said so because I heard from a friend of mine whose name is Shirley from Laos that some people in his country eat cats sometimes...

lol, I acknowledged but it was in a post to zoobyshoe. Next time you are in a Cockney restaurant, tell the chef his food has the consistency of Henry the Third. :rofl: :wink:
 
What sort of food do they sell at a Cockney restaurant? The great East London cuisine of pie and chips? Of course, that comes free with a pint of lager and a blazing row.

A raw salted herring, hold it by the tail fin, dip in some raw onion, and enjoy :biggrin:
Now there is something you can treat yourself with :smile:

Yeuch... sounds like the sort of filthy stuff they eat here in Norway.

They also have this strange one involving a fish, a hole in the ground, some urine and waiting a year... yummy!

Is that the stuff they call Gevelkefisk? (or something like that...) We have some scandanavians in our area and they eat some kind of weird fish thing about which everyone says 'you have to develop a taste for it...' :eek:

Monique, are you part sea lion? :rofl:
That sounds like what we used to feed the seals and sea lions at Fisherman's wharf in San Francisco!!

Maybe it's lutefisk. "smelly old dried fish soaked in lye"

And then there's that rotting shark stuff that they eat in Iceland, I mean they literally let it rot for several months, all slimy and smelly. It was on National Geographic.

Hmm, if I want my tastebuds 'developed' I'd much rather do it with a curry.

How about making a snack of these krinkle-cut French fries while throwing that cheeseburger and chocolate shake down your throat;

Really? I had never heard that. Is that true for all nuts or just peanuts?
