    I've never tried seafood I didn't enjoy, but I've never tried a sardine! Not sure I ever will...

    these trendy pork belly sandwiches, maybe they're great but I think I'll live without trying them.

    I can't think of any category of food I haven't at least tried.....Insects, organs, game, vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts, seeds.....

    Not sure how popular they are, other than in the South but I don't think I would ever try chitterlings.

    I was raised with the command I had to give EVERYTHING at least a "no thank you" helping. Backfired on my parents as they ended up with a 10 year old who loved crab legs, caviar & foie gras ;-)

    if you have eaten a BLT, then technically you have eaten a pork belly sandwich.

    i love pork belly. i even make my own bacon. bought a pork belly from costco and cured it. delicious! i need to do it again.

    wish costco sold it with the skin on though. would have been able to also make some crackling

    Had it once....sitting in a bar (Senor Sushi) in Cabo, I saw the tuna come off the boat and brought into the bar. The owner gave a sample plate that was amazing.

    I have never eaten Thai food.

    I have never had spam...it isn't popular in Canada. I don't think I know anyone here who has had it though I have seen it in the Dollar Store so someone must buy it.

    Ditto for chicken fried steak @Sonya

    Ditto sweetbread

    Headcheese.....my Dad used to eat it ewwwwww, no thanks.

    I've never eaten duck or lamb---in any form. Those are the more common meats I have avoided. Not even mentioning game or wild fowl as they aren't common. I have eaten sushi but don't get the attraction.
