    Weird snacks

    So, I just got done eating a green olive and havarti cheese sandwich on a hard roll (I'm pretty sure hard rolls are a Southern thing, never heard of 'em til I moved to North Carolina.) My boyfriend thinks I'm a freak of nature for eating such a thing, but to me it tastes good. And I know I'm not the only person who eats weird things for a snack, cuz everybody in my family does. One of my younger brothers LOVES bbq sauce spread on white bread, for example, I think it's disgusting, but he loves it. In my opinion, to each their own. But it got me thinkin...

    So, what do you folks say? Have you got a weird thing that you love eating, but everybody around you thinks you're purely loco for eating it? Or do you abstain from such aberrant behaviors? What's the deal, MW?

    How can your boyfriend think olives, cheese and bread are a weird thing? All you really did was kind of smush it all together!!

    I don't know if I eat 'weird' snacks though. I'll have to think about that for a bit and come back to it.

    Google seems to be suggesting that "hard roll" is East Coast (particularly New York/New Jersey) slang for a Kaiser roll. WitchJezebel can probably attest to the accuracy or inaccuracy of that conflation, I'm guessing.

    I've gotten out of the habit of snacking. I eat "weird" things (I've got two rabbits and some beef suet in the freezer, and I've been craving beef heart pho for weeks), but only really at set meals.

    It is. A "hard roll" is a round roll with a hard, bread like crust as opposed to a "soft roll" which would be like a hamburger bun. There is a variant from the Buffalo area called a "kummelweck" which is topped with caraway seeds and coarse grained salt. "Hot beef on weck" is found all over the Buffalo area and practically unknown elsewhere. It consists of hot sliced roast beef au jus on a kummelweck roll with horseradish.

    Yes sir, that's correct. I actually prefer to eat a burger on a Kaiser roll instead of the soft rolls, they absorb the juices and condiments better without falling apart.

    I've never had beef heart pho, sounds pretty tasty. I've only had rabbit once in Italy and it was delicious, I'd love to make it at home.

    Not weird at all actually; when you said olives, cheese and bread I was thinking of an antipasta platter at parties!!

    I love carrots and peanut butter, or apples and peanut butter. Does that count????

    I love Kaiser rolls too... Like WJ said, they soak up everything without falling apart and getting soggy. If there is one thing that makes me gag, it's soggy bread...

    There's also something that some of us east coast Canadians like, it's called "Hard Tack", a type of biscuit. It's called that for a reason, it's hard as a rock, one could use it for hockey pucks and it wouldn't break at all. I don't like it though, but my husband's cousin in law in MA loves the stuff. YECH.

    Cloaky, I've heard of hard tack but never seen nor tasted it. Now I'm curious, though.

    I don't think pb and celery is weird but I don't care for pb so I'd never try it.
