A vending machine that sells "weird combinations" of food. Although I love these, and history shows for instance that cocoa was used first as a spice for meet (without sweetening!) this could be an opportunity to introduce many new foods, for the millions of bold people out there who are not afraid of terrorists, and for the other brave citizens of the world.

       I'm for steamed octopus.   

       You're right, UB: Make mine candied macadamia-encrusted steamed whole baby octopus with a handfull of coconut excelsior. Weird, by US standards.

       Any kind of Mexican candy would work well here.

       mmmmmmm, habanero gum

       humble pie?
po, Jun 30 2002
  

       What about portions of specially reared flightless bird, with added hormones, steroids and anti-biotics, deep fried in some genetically modified saturated fats, encrusted in an artificially flavoured and sweetened 'krusty koating', and served in a bucket with an accompaniment of processed, shaped root vegatable with added sugar,also deep fried? Now thats weird.....

       I dunno. The stuff that passes for food in America is pretty weird already. Ever been to a McDonald's?

       Black pudding. Now theres a weird food. Fit well in a vending machine, tho.
dijit, Jun 30 2002
  

       Mmmm...... delightful crickets, cockroaches, and other bugs of the world; smothered in a swirl of white and dark chocolate... slightly salty, with a light nutty aftertaste....
polartomato, Jun 30 2002
  

       Had some chocolate dipped bugs in Thailand once. not that good. But maybe with better chocolate, perhaps Lindt dark would work? Theres a lot of goodness in a bug, apparently, a lot more than your average Mac. anyway.

       and talking of octopus....can't say I've had it steamed, but try bbq baby octupus, garlic and lemon. It is fantastic.
dijit, Jun 30 2002
  

       I've learned to tolerate big "Mac attacks" and "fried cravings"; nonetheless, how can I resist a "weird food vending machine" from which I cannot, possibly, look away?

       A Brit criticising US food is a laughable stretch of credibility, doc.
bristolz, Aug 29 2002
  

       I'm a brit and I'm more than happy to criticise American food.
briandamage, Aug 29 2002
  

       What about dumplings floating in a huge veggie stew? Or welsh rarebit on wholemeal toast, or Yorkshire pudding...... Fair comment tho'. the british diet is pretty shite, but youv'e gotta admit that grits are the food of the devil...
briandamage, Aug 29 2002
  

       I thought grits were an 'in-joke' amongst waitresses in diners all over America, reserved only for passing tourists too polite to point out their offensiveness.
briandamage, Aug 29 2002
  

       Touched a bit of a nerve there have I? I've had them and they're shite. Like eating gravel withthe taste removed. But each to his/her own. Now what about marmite. Proper english marmite, not the stuff we get down here in NZ that says marmite on the jar but actually is some sort of rendered cow. proper marmite on toast sodiers. YUMMM!! (proper Marmite is called Ourmate in the antipodes. Something to do with copywrites I suppose.
briandamage, Aug 30 2002
  

       In Israel everything would have to be kosher if I want it to succeed. So no octopus or bugs.   

       Actually I was thinking about simple things like a peanut-butter sadwitch with mustard and yellow cheese, or a chocloate-tuna-fish salad. Just a bit unusual. Preferably some kind of food never tasted before.

       Where would you mainly situate this marvel of ingestible uniquenesses?

       On the plains, in Spain.

       "A Brit criticising US food is a laughable stretch of credibility, doc. — bristolz, Aug 29 2002"   

       I so miss that wit and candor.
