While the rest of us ate pancakes with maple syrup (normal food), our dad would order up a plate of buckwheat pancakes with blackstrap molasses--ugh! I can still see him sitting there shoveling in forkful after forkful. As a kid, I thought it looked (and smelled) terrible. As an adult, I just might try it one day.
