Have you ever had an RC Cola and a Moon Pie?
You betcha!
Nope, but I know about both of them.
RC Cola?
Moon pie?
Hmm. Sugar and more sugar-- you're telling me that's actually a thing?

Poll
Ever had "prairie oysters" (aka "Rocky Mountain oysters" aka "criadillas"...?
Huh? What? No-- what are they?
There's no way in Hell that I'm eating even one of those.
Yes, but I was tricked.
Yes, willingly. Meat is meat.

Your poll is missing the "No. But I'm largely indifferent to the idea."

I've consumed a Moon Pie and RC, but not at the same time. And I didn't make a habit of either.

I wouldn't go near any definition of a prairie oyster.

I consider myself to be fairly unique, as a Canadian who has had an RC and a moon pie all at the same time and on purpose.
My daughter brought both of them back home for me, after a trip to Nashville. I ate the moon pie off of a "commemorative" aluminum plate featuring Elvis Presley's image, which was my other souvenir present.
Wow; was that ever sweet. "My teeth may have started peeling enamel", sweet.

Meanwhile, I live 10 minutes from a city where I know of two restaurants with prairie oysters on their appetizer menus, and one of those places even has an annual "festival" featuring it. Er, them. gulp

Ohio has a few of my favorite comfort foods.

Goetta, a type of sausage originating from German immigrants in Cincy. It was made of the less desirable pork scraps and oats.



Skyline Chili is another guilty pleasure of mine.



And, of course, the buckeye.

Out here in LA, I can't find sour/half-sour pickles, a real diner, or broccoli rabe. There is one place, however, that sells Taylor ham* by the pound and I couldn't be happier.


*as we called it in the Somerset county dialect.

Already posted, but it needs an unpackaged picture for the full effect.

Behold scrapple!


God I miss that stuff. So good!

And these I've never tried, but they're supposed to be pretty tasty.

Kool-Aid Pickles

Is Izzy's Deli still in Santa Monica, Erik? When my wife was doing her jeweler's training at GIA, we went there several times and I was delighted to find it as good as any NYC jewish deli. The corned beef and pastrami sandwiches were delicious and yes, there were genuine kosher dill pickles.

BTW, I've obviously missed a thread, but what are you doing in LA-LA land? Short visit, extended one, or permanent relocation?

Don't blame you. Spotted dick should be a suet pudding not a sponge. All the best ones are home made.

I hear ya. We'd like to minimize it as well (and we live in Virginia!). So we're already thinking about where we'd like to live after I retire. The problem is, we need to find a place that's warm, and reasonably cheap, and somewhat civilized, and has a good gaming culture. Could be tough.

Yeah, our parameters were warm and not too racist. The strong gaming scene out here was a bonus.

Ha!

Another funny part is the "Natural" and "Uncured" part coupled with what I'm sure is a big price tag. I'll bet "celery" is on the ingredient list.

The sausage industry has discovered a loophole where instead of adding plain phosphates to cure sausages, they add extract of celery that was grown with high nitrate fertilizers. The celery is a great at sucking it up and leaving it in its veins.

So just as much nitrate is in the sausage (which helps ferment the lactobacillus that makes the sausage so yummy) with the added peace of mind that it is "natural" and "uncured" and the word "nitrate" isn't in the ingredient list...

It's a doner kebab served on chips (fries) instead of in bread.

Known in my neck of the woods as an HSP, and in South Australia (where incidentally you are more likely to find the pie-floater pictured above - a meat pie submerged in pea soup) as an AB, which doesn't stand for anything particularly pleasant.
