We all have the unfortunate tendency to crave and eat some nasty things while we’re drunk, most notably cheesy chips from a questionable looking Turkish place on Bell Street (not naming names or anything…). Some of us worse than others. In honor of it being only week 3, where we still have time to go out and will all undoubtedly find ourselves snacking on some strange things at 2 a.m. in the morning at some point, I have taken to the St Andrews Yik Yak herd to ask one very important question: “What’s the weirdest drunk food you’ve ever had?”
The replies? Fantastic, as usual. So I now present to you, in order of mildly disgusting to vomit inducing, the strangest food ever consumed by St Andrews students. Enjoy.
10. Raw pizza
Now, I was hoping this Yakker meant “cold” pizza, because you can’t possibly eat pizza raw, right? Nope. Raw. Uncooked dough on cold cheese on cold tomato sauce in it’s original, glorious state. You really were so drunk you couldn’t even wait to bake that thing? (But seriously, mad respect. I definitely wouldn’t be able to wolf that down.)
9. Calzone stuffed with chicken nuggets
I think I could hop on this one. Maybe. But then you start thinking about pink slime and all the little nasties that go into chicken nuggets, and… Nah. Probably only when I’m intoxicated enough to not think about stuff like that.
8. Uncooked pasta
It’s just like the raw pizza. Ew. Except at least raw pizza dough is soft. Uncooked pasta is… Just what is wrong with your drunk self?!
7. Ice cream on a pizza
Honestly, it’s not too strange for a drunk food. If you ate them separately. But just think about that flavour juxtaposition. I guess this one really would depend on what exactly was on the ice cream and what exactly was on the pizza. To your drunk senses, it probably tastes like eating a little slice of heaven.
Seriously, who doesn’t end a wild night out here? When said questionable Turkish place with cheesy chips only makes #6 on the strange food list, it’s time you all knew that it’s about to get REAL STRANGE up in here. Prepare yo’selves.
5. Mayonnaise on untoasted bagels
I’ve always found mayo lovers and mayo haters to be 50/50. If you love mayo, it’s probably not strange at all (perhaps you were even the Yakker who submitted this one). If you hate it, you’re probably retching right now. It’s okay. You can go to the bathroom for a break now. What gets me personally is the untoasted bagel. Just yuck.
4. A whole 600g tub of natural yogurt
I’m totally all for yogurt as much as the next person, but natural yogurt is really gross when eaten plain and that’s a whole lot of yogurt. A whole lot.
3. A mini scotch egg with whipped cream on top
This Yakker wanted to clarify that this food (may) have been eaten for the purposes of a drunk bet. If so, I hope you got paid a good bit for eating this punishment. Blech.
2. Cat food
Meow, I guess? Apparently humans can eat cat food without dying, but I wouldn’t recommend it. What in the world made you think this would be a good idea? Even while drunk??
What happened? Were you just walking through the Kinburn one evening and decided on a little midnight snack? I’ve just got one comment on that: there’s maggots in those things. *drops mic*
