Weird foods your kids LOVE

My stepson is a GREAT eater. He's willing to try new things, doesn't shy away from healthy stuff, and will even come back and try new spins on foods he didn't like before. But. BUT I also find some of his dining habits hilariously odd. As a picky eater myself, I both envy his bravery and am completely baffled by it. Some of his favorites:

1. pickles in plain yogurt (?????)

2. sushi (what 6 yr old likes this????)

3. potato salad wrapped in a pita roll (courtesy of his dad packing a hasty lunch one day, and now I need to find a way to incorporate this at least once a week without giving the child food poisoning because his lunchbox isn't refrigerated during the day)

3. broccoli (nuff said)

4. eggplant

5. buckwheat

6. almond milk (both my kids think this is the equivalent of a milk shake, which is fine by me)

7. dark chocolate (like the rich, bitter kind stodgy chocolate aficiandos appreciate and no one else)

8. super duper overripe bananas (which I find gross and am pretty sure don't contain as many nutrients, as it's essentially a rotting piece of fruit, but I also understand that these taste sweeter and creamier than ripe bananas)

9. tofu hot dogs

What odd things are your kids happily willing to eat?

My older two don't really have any weird things they like to eat. Although they do like pickled asparagus, will eat really ripe bananas, and my son loves spinach. My youngest loves to eat the fire sauce out of packets at taco bell and pretty much any other hot sauce or salsa.
