Reading this topic tonight I had a flash, I recalled a visit to an US grocery store, always enjoyed those because of all the weird food I found. To my eyes, there are things that are a lot weirder then green ketchup, something I have never seen. How about cheese in a tube, or peanut butter with jelly also in a tube. Chocolate cereal, cookies sold with dips. I could go and on. All this to say one person weird food is another one delight.
Green ketchup aside, maybe we need a more open attitude about food, being more curious about unknown flavours, more willing to try new foods. One last thought, lobsters are in demand these days, considered a delicacy to savour a few times every year. Have you ever thought of how hungry the first guy who ate a lobster must have been….
