I have met my try new things quotient

Don't ever, for any reason no matter how good an idea it may seem, purchase soy hot dogs. Just the smell of them while cooking made me physically ill. I would rather eat raw squid--at least only its texture makes me want to puke. And I love edamame (boiled soybeans). I seriously had to leave my apartment to get other food and wait for the smell to go away so I could eat. I still have a headache from it. Which baffles me as to why it caused a headache on top of nausea. Just don't try them. Ever. Even if the crack you are smoking is that good, find something else instead.

I've heard they're terrible smelling... I think it was my roommate, who said she used to go camping with vegetarians who would cook those things over the campfire, and there was nowhere she could go to escape the stink.

(And raw squid makes me want to retch from the texture too, it's the first sashimi I couldn't quite manage to eat. And edamame are one of the best things I've ever had.)

Ugh, it was truly terrible. I don't know what it is about the squid though--it's not like I haven't eaten something similar. I guess it's just too squishy or something. But the soy dogs were utterly revolting.

For me it was the chewiness. It reminded me too much of the texture of a big piece of fat off a cut of beef or something, and I have an aversion to fat and the texture of it. So since the squid felt about the same way in my mouth I had a really hard time making myself swallow it. I don't think I"ll get it again. Scallop sashimi is really good, though. Kind of a nice, soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture and a slightly sweetish taste.
