    The ice cream thread got me to wondering. Have you ever been curious about the stuff you feed you pet and tried it? Even a teensy bit?

    For the record, over the years I've tried:

    Choice Morsels (and old brand of semi-dry cat food): yucky

    Fish-flavored cat puffs (kind of like cheese puffs, but with a fish instead of cheese taste): tolerable, but one was enough to last a lifetime.

    Frosty Paws: tastes like the old non-dairy infant formula. Blecch.

    Alpo (on a dare as a kid): That's a taste I'll never forget, unfortunately.

    Milk Bone biscuits: I used to get into these when I was little, kind of liked them. These days I get coated ones for the pup, but I haven't been curious enough to try (they smell kind of nasty).

    Other pet treats, as you know from the other thread. :D But I only tried a tad.

    I didn't really think you'd post it.... :]

    I haven't but, my younger brother did once (cat dry food). He could barley break it with his teeth and he said it was dry and awful. Oh the poor things brothers make other brothers do. :rolleyes: :p

    The woman says:

    "A long time ago. I've only tried cat food. The dry food was gross, but the canned food wasn't as bad."

    I used to eat dog biscuits when I was little.

    This is hilarious that this thread came up.

    Yesterday I was at my friends birthday party. A lot of her friends gave her candy, and one of them included horse biscuits (she has horses). So she was giving me candy, and she gave me one of the horse biscuits to eat without telling me it was a horse biscuit. She and another girl were like "omg these are so good, these are my favorite". So I wasn't really paying attention, I was watching a movie, so I ate the biscuit. And after I swallowed I was like "That was f***ing gross, it tastes like a dog biscuit. How do you like these things, they are so dry and...". The girl said "OMG you actually ate that- we though you would have caught on" and she laughed hysterically.

    Additionally funny, I was eating a fireball when she gave me the horse biscuit, which means I was holding the biscuit for like 10min and I didn't even notice.

    The question being polled is a "Have you" or have you not, so shouldn't there be an option for members that haven't tried any of those delectible treats above :confused:

    IOW i haven't :p

    I think I chewed on some Meow Mix when I was a kid.

    Gross... since there are less stringent requirements as to what goes in pet food compared to human food, I've never been in the least bit tempted to try any of them...

    We already know this is an unusual thing to do, and it's probably for the best not to know how unusual :D

    Dog chocolate and biscuits can be surprisingly good... I used to share with the (extended) family dog when I was a kid... I've also been known to steal sunflower seeds from the birds' stash... :)

    Regular pet food, canned or dry, and all cat "treats", on the other hand, seems just too revolting to try... ;)

    I tasted canned cat food once. Just a tiny bit on the tip of a spoon. It tasted like canned meat, but I'd probably puke if I ate any more than a "tiny" bit. That was years ago, so I would not attempt this disgusting feat again.

    I've never tried cat or dog food, but once at zoo camp they gave us dry polar bear food as a joke and I actually ate it. I didn't throw it back up so it wasn't that bad, but it was dry and hard as a rock. I felt bad for the polar bears.

    I went to a play once that started out with someone opening a tin of dogfood and eating it.

    I had a dog biscuit once. I was about 7 years old. My little sister had a puppy theme birthday party. My mom baked cookies that looked identical to dog biscuits and hid them throughout the house for all the little kids to find. About a week after the party I found a "cookie" sitting on a book shelf. I figured that they must have missed one and happily took a bite. Turns out it was a real dog biscuit. Why anyone would ever eat one of those intentionally is beyond me. It tasted terrible.

    when I was about 6, I ate a dog biscuit.

    I'll never forget that taste.

    It was so gross...

    I forget what prompted it, but it was probably my own fault. I was a dumb little kid.

    (think smaller version of my present-day self.

    Sampling a Milk Bone will have to wait until my bark is perfected.

    When you open up a can of cat food and see chunky bits of vein in there, it doesn't set you salivating... that's for sure.
