In an early episode of the BR Deadly Premonition ER, there is talk of red vines vs. twizzlers. I like twizzlers, even though they taste like plastic.

I also enjoy bricks of velveeta. The kind that doesn't need to be refrigerated.

Also Taco Bell. It's not food, but it is delicious.

All of those things sound tasty. If you enjoy it, why is it gross?

As long as it's not hurting anyone, why not take a page from Dan and just like what you like?

Kalles Kaviar. Kalles Kaviar with raw onion slices.

Swedes will probably retch at that.

Blue cheese is pretty gross, I mean, it's literally furry cheese, and it kinda smells off, but it's too damn good.

I'll throw some Oreos or chocolate chip cookies in a glass and just pour the milk over it then just drink it after the cookies mellow for a while because look man, I'm a damn adult and I ain't got no time to do this one cookie at a time nonsense I got shit to do.

I don't know if other people find that gross but I could see why someone would.

Sunny side up egg in a burger? Yolk goes all over the beef and it's delicious!

Does that count as gross?

I used to crumple up Pop Tarts in a bowl of cereal. Somehow I've dodged diabetes. I don't do that anymore. But it was delicious.

No way, that's an accepted great combination. It's kind of like steak and eggs.

None of the things you listed are gross. I mean... there's wax candy for crying out loud (I used to love the little wax bottles filled with crappy koolaid, but what a weird kind of candy if you think about it too much).

I tend to experiment with my food when I'm bored. People used to think these things were gross but most of it is pretty popular now. Much like when Elvis made fried banana and peanut butter sandwiches popular. It's pretty ingrained popular in a lot of places now, but there was a time that it was unheard of in most places.

Like: I like putting a slice of american cheese in my Ramen noodles.

I like MREs. When I was in the Army I had to eat them a lot (I was deployed most of the time). Some people think they're gross, but these days more civilian do buy boxes of them than used to. Other than the occasional spoiled bread (that's the worst part about MREs- is when the bread or the cake spoils. You won't know, usually, until you try to eat it) I loved the stuff.

I like crushing Oreos and pouring milk on it and eating it like a bowl of cereal.

I like toast with butter and koolaid on it.

I like this dish my Mom "taught" me to make (quotations are because it's super easy- so much so that teaching it is an overstatement) where you mix cottage cheese, jello mix and whip cream in a bowl. I forget what she called it, I think she just called it "stuff" (like the horror movie) but you can add more things to it. Some people like to add fruit to it or marshmallows. So good. Now I want to buy the ingredients for that.

I like easy cheese. I know it's awful cheese (I've had great cheese before- stuff that Dan might call "fancy"), but I still love it. Europeans are mostly the ones that tell me it's gross.

I don't know. I can't think of anything else right now. Last thing is: I like to add seasoned salt to almost everything I eat. The reason being is I like the taste of salt, so way back in the 80s I would put tons of salt on everything I ate. In the 90s (I think it was) I switched to seasoned salt so it wasn't as likely to give me an early heart attack. I can't stand bland food, though. In most restaurants I have to use salt because general restaurants don't have that much flavor in their food. At least not until recently when Gordon Ramsey started making restaurants think about how their food tastes. It's actually gotten a little better in the last 5 years. Shitty restaurants still exist, though.

Take ramen, cook it, mash up the noodles (probably with your hands because if you're making this, you are already a lazy fuck), take the mash and mix it with eggs, and make some pancake like monstrosity out of it. It's good, but I feel bad every time I do this as a midnight snack.

@cornbredx: Whenever my wife and I go camping she brings her old MREs she didn't finish and I usually just chow down on those. They taste better than crap in the frozen section of a store to be honest

@somedelicook: THEY TOTALLY DO!

Ya, I love MREs. Especially when they have the jalapeno cheese. Melt it with the heater, put it on (or if it's stew or soup put it in) your food and it's party time!

I remember when they first introduced the hamburger MREs. I was in heaven.

MREs went to hell when they took out the little bottles of Tabasco. Idiots!

@mb: I didn't know they did that. When I was in the military they still had tabasco in every pack I think.

I remember, generally, using it to stay awake on long guard duties.

You ever just skip the whole cooking process and just crunch those noodles and add that flavor dust to water and drink it?

I tried putting those Dill pickle chips on a salami sandwich once, and now I have to do that every time there is anything to do with salami. Also, surprisingly, a lot of things work on that sandwich. Bananas, peanut butter, marshmallow fluff...

Oh yeah, I like marshmallow fluff and that shit is GROSS.

Growing up in a Chinese household, we went for dim sum every other week. Sure, you have things like char siew bow (Pork buns), turnip cakes, ha gao, and siu mai. One of my favorites was fung zao. Chicken's feet, deep fried and then braised in a spicy black bean sauce.

None of the things you listed are gross. I mean... there's wax candy for crying out loud (I used to love the little wax bottles filled with crappy koolaid, but what a weird kind of candy if you think about it too much).

As a kid, I -always- wanted those wax bottle candies but my parents never let me buy them. When I was old enough to bike to the store on my own, I bought a bag of them. I didn't know the bottles were literally wax. The liquid inside wasn't very good. None of my friends were able to answer the questions of a young 8 year old Chinese boy. Are you supposed to eat the wax? Chew it? Just bite the tops off and drink the liquid?

I saw a kid at an anime convention do something like this once. He was waiting in some line for some panel, took out a bag of ramen, took the block of noodles out, poured the MSG packet on top, and ate it in brick form.

Yup. I love the smell of second-hand smoke. Providing what they're smoking isn't awful.

Dipping shitty pizza into multiple sauces. I currently use ketchup, sriracha, ranch, bbq, and jerk sauce. I don't mix them but I dip the pizza and crust into each one as I eat.

@zelyre: Ya, I don't actually know what the intended way to eat those is. If you chew the whole bottle (like you would bubble gum) the liquid kind of mixes in and you can chew it kind of like bubble gum.

I think that's the intended way to do it, but ya those are really strange candy.
