    Your biggest culinary surprise...

    Mine was onion rings. I was around 8 years old and in Italia. Ate a ton of them. Then found out they were calamari (this was when no American even knew what calamari was..err....were). Had a split second "ewwwww" moment, then figured what the hell. Loved them ever since.

    Pumpkin pie. For years and years I wouldn't eat it (the idea of pumpkin as a filler for a pie didn't sound all that appetizing to me). One day I gave in and tried it and said, "you know, this isn't half bad". It's no apple pie but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Fried up extra crisp. Divided into two piles. Lemon juice squeezed over one, balsamic vinegar drizzled over the other.

    I would go with this too. Then, the first Thanksgiving we were together, my wife made one and I had to try it...it was damn good!

    That's so funny!
    This would be mine also.

    I didn't try pumpkin pie til I was probably in my 30's.... as a child it just wasn't something I even wanted to consider, and then somewhere in my 30's, I decided to try a small piece and I was shocked that I liked it. It may still not be my first choice of dessert if a home made apple pie or pecan pie is there, but often if I "go back" for another sweet later on that night, it may very well be a small piece of pumpkin pie.
    .Of all the things in life I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    I've never tried it but most people rave about so I imagine it's good. I'm just not a pie person. I do like to eat the pecans off a pecan pie though - the rest of it I can do without.....the crust etc.

    Carrot Cake... A dessert made out of a vegetable sounds gross but it's really good. Only tried it a few years ago for the first time
