Doesn't sound weird to me but then again, while being an American, I 
am open to many things and I love pickles of many sorts. (I LOVE 
pickled beets).

I grew up on military bases and was exposed from a very early age to 
all sorts of foods from many places. I had neighbors at various times 
from the Philippines, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and all parts of the U.S. 
It wasn't unusual for a potluck party in the neighborhood to have 
pancit, rice balls with seaweed, tamales, gumbo and fried rice all on 
the same table with a jello mold, pot roast and a pumpkin pie.

Now if you want to talk about weird food... jello molds, now those 
are weird... ;-)
