Baskin-Robbins is hawking an ice-cream dish covered in candy spiders. Okay, that's a decent Halloween pile, I suppose, but they're calling it "The 'Fear-Factor' Sundae" to hook into the idiotic POX program.

Yup, nothing makes me hungrier than "Fear Factor." How about a cheese-covered choco sundae shaped like cowflop in honor of California's popular "It's The Cheese" commercials?

I'd make a joke about a genital-shaped cake, but...well, there we are. But at least they aren't advertised on the Boob Tube. (Ha-ha.)

Hey, spiders is a delicacy! I was watching the discovery channel once see..and these natives hunted and captured tarantulas that spanned a foot long. They scraped off the spiney needles, squeezed out the eggs into a seperate leaf and put that on the fire to make some kind of omlet. Then they cook the spider and ate that badman like a hamburger!

I bet they'd be shocked to learn if they came to america they could win tens of thousands of dollars for doing that kind of stuff on tv.

I don't know about any of you but I have to admit if someone cooked up a spider and said "try it, it's good!', I'd sample it.  I really would!  I've always wondered what fried tarantula tasted like.  I will try out ALMOST anything fleshy and nutricious.  No joke.  (I have my limits though)

The most exotic meat I've eaten was kangaroo while in Australia last year.  It tastes like regular steak only with a more natural robust flavor.  I highly recommend it!

The whole issue over anal leakage.

Found it, Olestra:

I am glad that I do not eat potato chips.

Well ash your a prime candidate for bug camp. There are bug societies nationwide that believe the true path to proper nutrition is the consumption of crickets, worms and other types of insects because of their high source protein. These are usually advocates of animal rights in that they don't believe in farms that raise cows and such in confined areas in unhealthy conditions for our consumption..and that meat causes clogged arteries and all that. I saw a show, they demonstrate often to kids how to cook bugs, saute and fry.  Personally i'd rather eat a cow or pig that was raised on an organic farmers land than eat larve..but hey, that's just me.


Andrew, I think that olestra thing is a myth to people or only affect people with sensitive bowels or who eat gobs of it. I know scientists state it "may" cause it in "some" people, I just think those people have freaky bowel habits to begin with.The only potato chips I have in my house are made with olestra and i have never, ever had a problem. Nor has anyone i've known. I had to laugh at a story I heard about a guy who sued because he ate some and sat on the toilet thinking he was literally going to be with jesus. I think he probably read the warning label on the bag (something he never saw on a food product) and saw his opportunity. if Ruffles ever did pay that man for pain and suffering due to diarrhea, i truly want out of this nation.  ;-)

Btw, do you all know that scientists now have evidence that french fries and regular potato chips have cancer causing agents because of the intense heat changing chemical compounds in starch?

ahh..death by french fry. Wonder if the surgeon general will have to put warning labels on them. Maybe in public they'll start having a french fry and a non french fry eating section, and chips will be banned from airplanes entirely.

Ewwwwww........
.... I brought my friend Steve some stuff i found in England. White Chocolate Maggots, and Chocolate spiders. If he did not keep a kosher diet....you and him could chow down!
....Gag. He used to keep Tarantulas, Madagascar Hissing cockroaches, pythons,and other weird pets.....who knew that in some countries, he had a smorgasboard?
....Great, now i'm remembering that post long ago where someone wrote of disgusting canned food. Vegamite, SPAM (Stuff poseing as meat), and other goodies. Also that gag in "Beginning of the end" where the clown talks about eating choclate covered grasshoppers, and the other guy tells him to look out, they might get even.

Hey, spam is delicious and nutricious! Sure it's minced, but it's pork shoulder.

Hot Dogs, bologne, etc. are scarier. Make sure when you buy meat there is nothing about byproducts or "variety meat" on it. I quit eating salami when I realized "beef hearts" were in it. I dunno, i just couldn't get past it. It lists the beef hearts on the package, but when you see "Variety meat" that means it could be anything. That considered, SPAM is the least of your worries. ;-)

For the most part we all eat bugs, there's a certain amount of them in most canned food reported by the FDA. They just can't simply get them all out (mostly i refer to canned veggies and fruits).

Geletin is made of cattle skin, pig skin and bone marrow.

I think the idea is that half the time we are ignorant, either voluntarily or by lack of provided information, of what exactly we are eating. At least the natives cooking up their spiders know what they are putting into their mouth. Do we?

Soylent Green anyone?

Along with capsule b-movie reviews, Forrest Walter has "Food I Fear" on his website:

http://www.forrestwalter.com/food.html

"We tortured each other with it for a while before I threw it away. "

- That line always makes me crack up.

Tarantulas?! I'll give you tarantulas! Apparently, there is a town in Cambodia, that supplements the income it gets from agriculture by selling fried tarantulas... Supposedly, they are crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Like fried crickets, but only better. I can't comment on either, Never having tried either. Still working up my courage to try escargot or snails. Enjoy!

Few foods I actually fear, those mainly include mystery meat and byproducts. But of "common" items found in most grocery stores and kitchens there are a few that simply turn me green. Why? I dunno. We all have our quirks. And i'd be simply thrilled if any of these products were erased from existance forever!

Pimento. Whether it's in cheese or stuffed green olives (which that in itself is my nightmare realized). Firstly i don't like "things" in my cheese..and I have a distaste for spreadable cheese to begin with. Unless it's cream cheese. People do really scary things with cheese.

Chef Boyardee products - in particular their alleged "beef" products (ie: meatballs). Somehow I just can't accept that it's actually real meat.

sourkraut will make me dry heave, I can't imagine how the rancid smell of that stuff can make anybody's mouth water.

And, in one word....PATE

I agree on the sauerkraut/liberty cabbage.  If I walk into a room where it's being prepared I have to turn around and walk out.  My mother used to make "fried corn".  UUGGH!!  I like corn and all but when it's taken and fried in a skillet with a little grease...well you get the picture.  It is absolutely disgusting!

FOOD I FEAR! Thats the one! I knew Andrew had a terrifying link like that one time.....man...."Daves insanity sauce". My friend Barbra can handle hot sauce that would make my nose hair catch fire.....i went to the P.R.O. gun show, and got her a bottle with a skull for a cap, and a black robe draped down the neck of the bottle....it's called "Ass Reaper". I wait for the day she trys that one! The day i find a hot suace she can't handle....the Guinnes book is mine!

I used to travel on the road with a bottle of "Hot Sauce From Hell"  It was a bottle of Habenero Chili sauce I used to spice up my food with.  Good stuff.  (Being used to food from New Mexico, it was hard finding anything with enough bite on it  in places like Kansas City and Omaha)

When my wife makes enchiladas, I tell her "If it doesn't make my eyes water and my ears sweat, it's not hot enough"
