For the record, I've never had the grossest food listed in the 3 states I've lived in. I've had head cheese, just not in a sandwich. I've also had scrapple.

I had to check the list for NY's garbage plate at Nick Tahou's. Glad to see it's there since it's seriously the grossest food ever. For those who've never been, the article's description doesn't quite get the grossness across adequately -- it's macaroni salad and baked beans with burgers and hot dogs on top, eggs in there somewhere, then they actually drizzle extra grease over everything. Sure I've eaten it but would I eat it again?? (At 3am after a night out... yeah probably!)

As for Georgia's ham hocks, I've never had them but I now feel like I probably should -- just to say I've done it. Hmmm.

As for the rest, I've eaten a total of eight including Michigan's crap your neighbor killed and Virginia's Brunswick stew (which truly came from coastal Georgia). And by the way -- raw milk -- not gross at all. Ok, if you think too much about it, it's gross. But it's also exponentially better than the pasteurized kind.

I've had NC's livermush. I love it. Fry it up in a little bacon grease, good stuff.

In addition to my home state, I've had Cincinnati 5 way from Skyline once before. I really enjoyed it. Those are the only two I've tried on the list. I wouldn't have a problem with scrapple, it's pretty similar to livermush.

I've had Arizona's mesquite pods...meh, and Kansas with the bierrocks. They just love them things around here.

Looking back over the list. I've had ambrosia and it's really not that bad. I've had 5-way Cincinnati chile, but it didn't have hot dogs in it. I've also had Skyline and Gold Star versions of it. I've probably had nutra-rat and didn't know it. Sometimes it's better not to know what's in home made gumbo. Kentucky's grossest food had to be burgoo. As for jello salad, anybody who grew up in the Midwest had jello salad sometime in the life.

Hmmm

New bucket list item:
I want to see two female Cyburbians challenge each other to a Geoduck eating contest next time APA meets in Washington State. Now that would be funny. :D

Looking at that list, some of my favorite foods are on there. Ambrosia Salad? That's been a family staple of mine for as long as I can remember (even though none of us are from Alabama and we call it "Hawaiian Salad". Same with Jell-o Salad. Carne Adovada is awesome, too. My wife and her family are from Iowa and they love them some loose meat sandwiches, and I love 'em, too.
