    LOL reminds me of when my toddler swallowed a sliver of Ivory soap.

    @Tony
    Did I ever eat anything that I thought was something else?

    Well, yes I did. I ate some fried rabbit that my friend had prepared. My assumption was that it was fried chicken. I didn’t realize it was rabbit till the end of the meal. It was quite tasty though.

    Yes, but nothing as inedible as soap, or wax fruit…


    For instance, someone once gave me the most horrible-tasting chocolate Easter bunny ever…
    I couldn’t swallow even one bite.

    She later said it was carob.
    She’d unwrapped it so I wouldn’t refuse it, and I’d see how good it was.


    It wasn’t.

    Same with the Postum I was told was coffee…. YUCK.
    Not only that, there was no real coffee in the house, though I’d asked before I came so I could bring some.
    They’d assumed Postum would suffice.


    Similarly, but much more recently, I was handed a hot dog at a picnic…
    for a few seconds I thought it was meat…
    but it was strangely soft and squishy….
    and I suddenly felt compelled to get it off my plate immediately.
    I told my host, and she said “Oh, they’re vegan.”


    There is some perfectly good, ordinary food that happens to be vegan…. why make a horrible imitation of a hotdog?

    My friend and I would sometimes share sandwiches at school (100 years ago). He once gave me a sandwich and didn’t tell me what it was. I took a few bites and asked him if it was OK if I didn’t finish. He then told me it was cow tongue. A year later I returned the favor.

    As a 16-year-old coming home from my part-time job one night, I found that my mother left steak and biscuits in the refrigerator. As it happens, the steak was liver.

    Oh, I like those three things! I had a ricotta-honey-carob dessert recipe from a hippie cookbook I made for years. It wasn’t chocolate, no, but it was tasty IMO….I bellied up to the salad bar at a restaurant long ago and had some lovely pasta salad made with macaroni rings. It was …..chewy. In fact, chewy like cartilage. Turned out it was thin sliced calamari rings, not pasta rings.

    Yep. My ex thought it would be funny to let me try a spoonful of canned dog food. Since we didn’t normally buy it, I thought it was some kind of hash dish she was trying out. It actually wasn’t as bad as some of her other experiments.

    I remember as a child in the ’60’s seeing an obviously homeless person buying dogfood. [….] My mom told me he was probably buying it to eat because that was all he could afford. (Do people still do that?) That was before generic labeled food and/or homeless kitchens and shelters as abundantly as we recognize them today.

    The first generic brands where in white labeled cans and boxes. Still made by major manufacturers but they didn’t want to compete with themselves. They did that through the 80’s. People were a little less inclined to buy them because it “said” something about you at the checkout counter.
    Now a lot of cheaper brands are better than the brand names.

    Went to New Orleans on my honeymoon, ordered coffee sent up to our room, and spewed it on a very nice rug.
    Who ever heard of chicory coffee in Minnesota? Not me for sure. I understood the phrase “gag me with a spoon” when it came into popularity, simply by remembering that gawdawful chicory coffee!

    Years ago my wife made some home made soap that my dad thought looked like oatmeal cookies. Took some time before he trusted her cooking after that.

    Yes, and ended up in the emergency room for a shot of epinephrine and Benadryl.

    We drank Postum at home when I was growing up. Coffee was severely rationed during the war, and Postum has no caffeine, so kids could drink it and think they were oh, so grown up. However, once I tasted real coffee I stopped putting cream and sugar in it.
