I was at a Christmas party last Saturday and among the array of goodies they had, I spotted a plate of nice-looking "cheese" balls! They had toothpicks stuck in them so, stupidly, I decided to try one (or two), since I was trying everything that looked good... I have been vegetarian for a long time so I know how to spot meat when I taste it, and those cheese<br><br>
balls tasted like meat to me! Even though I was afraid I had to make myself go and ask the hostess what they were... she ended up telling me they were "sausage cheese balls"... I was proud of myself for not freaking out but I was still very much disturbed, but thankfully I had only taken 2 small bites of one!!<br><br>
It was the first time I'd had any kind of meat source in years...<br><br>
I'll know next time to ask <i>before</i> I put anything in my mouth.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dunce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dunce:">

Similar thing happened to me at a christmas party except it was with cheese (I'm vegan). My best friend was hosting a party and told me that she asked her mom to leave the parmesean on the side of the pasta because of me. Since there was little else I could eat except the cookies and cupcakes I brought and some raw veggies, I took a small portion. I bit into one of the tortellini and couldn't figure out what the filling was. I don't really remember what cheese tastes like because I never liked it and never really ate it. I asked my friend after the bite and she said "oh, actually, I think it's cheese, sorry." I'm a little curious as to why she left the cheese topping off of it for me, but still filled it with cheese.<br><br><br><br>
Oh well, live and learn. At least you didn't eat a lot of sausage balls!

I found out marshmallows have gelatin in them. I'm currently angry at myself for not knowing.<br><br>

The weirdest things have animals/ animal products in them. When I was still just veg i used to eat veg soup from cans... it has beef broth in it and i didnt know cause I figured... vegatables... but yea.. only after I became vegan and started reading things close did I realise that, it was very shocking and really gross.

Not necessarily. Some people do claim to feel ill if they've accidently eaten meat, and that's how they know they have accidently eaten meat. Others however don't feel any different. I've accidently eaten meat and I've felt fine.
