    So my wifes away in Florida for two weeks with her Mom & Dad, and my son yesterday-- pronounced (yestaday in Jersey) finds her sugar stash. Generally I know she collects Snicker Bars, Hershey chocolate bars etc ....but what he found is something called "Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies" so he & his GF tear into these things as a evening snack. They then leave a half empty box on the table. So today I'm kinda wondering if they would be good with coffee. Gotta tell you folks, I wouldn't feed these things to my worst enemy. They have to be the biggest lumps of ....ER well you know ..... with little colored chocolate chip candy strung on top.....needless to say, DISGUSTING. To add insult to injury, the box has Little red headed Debbie smiling at me with a label that is imprinted, McKee/a family company.

    I thought for a long time that chocolate covered Pop Tarts had 1st place as the Worst Food with Hot Pockets taking runner up or at very least 2nd place but this mix Cosmic Brownies Yuk ...... if you will excuse the expression....takes the cake. BUYER BEWARE!!!!:laugh:

    Never buy anything the company feels the need to make more attractive by adding a sophomoric word like "cosmic" to in order to facilitate sales.

    I have tried those Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies before, and I agree they are horrible. I think they are designed for folks with a severe case of "munchies", the "cosmic" being the subliminal message these folks desperately need to make a decision at the moment. Even the candy sprinkles are terrible.

    That said, they do not compare to this;

    [​IMG]

    This is a "Barley" hotdog. I was invited to a friend's house for lunch once, and his wife served these. It was horrible, like eating cardboard, except I am sure cardboard tastes much better. No condiment can rescue this horrible excuse for food. And they look much worse than this photo really shows.

    After the meal, my friend's wife wanted to know if she could ask me a serious question. I had no idea what she was going to say, but I agreed to answer her honestly. Then she asked me if I enjoyed the hotdog. I said, "Honestly? No, it was horrible!".

    She then turned and yelled at her husband, "I told you so! I told you these hot dogs are terrible!". Then she turned and apologized to me because her tightwad husband made her buy these cheap hot dogs. They ended up getting in a big argument right in front of me, I had to excuse myself and leave.

    If you don't believe me, try these yourself, but you have been warned.

    I have to beg to differ with the OP. Liver is, without doubt, question, or fear of contradiction, the absolute worst food on the planet. Bar none.

    I'm with you, TND, ABSOLUTELY!!

    I used to "pride" myself that I could eat just about anything that was normal in my neck of the woods, but liver never made the grade. I used to order liver occasionally at a restaurant simply to make myself get to be able to eat it w/o gagging.
    I usually managed to get 1 or 2 bites down, but I felt that to push for one more bite would bring it all back up.
    I finally decided it was a lost cause!!!!:thumbsup:

    Oh, disagree totally with you poor saps who have never lived, liver & onions done correctly is superb eating! And fried chicken livers w/gravy and biscuits is sublime! You people need to wake up and live life! (but be careful that your belly doesn't become your God, it'll make you fat)

    Gizzards, fried, with a bottle of hot sauce. What's not to like? You can chew gum and eat at the same time.

    Never eaten possum, but, I've heard from the ol' timers that they would catch them and keep them in holding cages and feed and fatten and purge them before slaughtering and butchering them. Read 'Hie to the Hunters', byJesse Stuart, you'll find out all about it there. :)

    Yeah, they're pretty bad. If you have a Wawa in your area, check out the brownies they have by the register. They're fantastic.

    Lean Pockets has a chicken fajita variety that's very good.

    I love fried chicken gizzards. Chewey, but that's what they're supposed to be. Decent channel cat bait when they're coming off the nest too.

    They have a very distinctive smell when fried, too.

    We host at risk children on our farm and whenever they hear we eat chicken gizzards, they always think I'm joking.

    I didn't learn to like them until I was in my mid thirties, but my dad would fight you for them.

    And, yes, they do make good bait. Use the gizzards for catfish and the necks for crabs.

    I don't think "bad tasting" and "Little Debbie" can be correctly placed together in a grammatically correct sentence. :laugh:

    I am with Brother Larry and chicken livers. Rolled in flour, fried w/onions...:D Also w/gravy...:)

    I used to love chicken gizzards. I got choked on one and if my brother hadn't attempted to break my spine with his fist as I was bent over, I'd been dead at 15-16. Can't remember exactly how old, but still in HS. I was choked and completely air locked. Needless to say, I shy away from them now.

    OK, I had to google 'Rocky Mountain Oysters'; never prepared them myself but 'turkey fries' were an absolute gourmet meal whenever Mom cooked them (with gravy and biscuits of course) when I was growing up.

    It's odd, many years ago me and an in-law raised some hogs together and someone he knew came and castrated the hogs for no charge; all he wanted for his labors was the 'oysters'.

    Chicken livers by far make the best bait, but it won't stay on the hook as well as gizzards. Good for quick limb lines when you can catch the river on a rise. A fermented bait of cottonseed meal cut (w/sardines or anchovies added) and boiled into dumplings is the best overall CHEAP trot line bait I've found for not only channel cats, but buffalo suckers, and even an occasional game fish also.
