"Don't knock it 'till you've tried it!" That's the moral of Theodor Seuss Geisel's all-time classic about a child harassing a man until he agrees to sample an oddly colored meat dish that turns out to be delicious.
In the culinary realm, we've learned, there are a ton of bizarre-looking (yet delightful) versions of everyday foods that would seem right at home on a table in Whoville. Below are some of these strange Seussian creations -- and, again, don't knock them 'till you've tried them.
