Everything you mentioned as well as....

Alligator I would try, no problem. Cream Tea, sure, nobody has ever offered it, and I so want to try clotted cream and scones too.
But 1/2 mentioned I do not want to try either! Durian fruit now...I have to look that one up.

Re: Everything you mentioned as well as....

I have seen Durian fruit in some of the high end grocery stores around here.
Most of what I have heard about it is that it smells disgusting.
Moreton Bay Bugs don't sound appetizing but they look sort of like horseshoe crabs.

The BBC site I linked to had little articles about all the strange things.
