Remember when broccoli and brussels sprouts used to be gross? Well imagine your mom feeding you fried tarantula or, like, pasta with blood sauce. It could’ve been SO much worse! I wouldn’t eat the things on this list if someone paid me $5,000,000 in diamonds. But someone somewhere has to like these strange foods, right?
Have you ever been eating Jello and wished it was even more gross? Yes? WELL HERE’S THE ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS! Jello salad is regular Jello mix and vegetables, and while I’m sure there are some people out there who find it delicious, I need those people to PLEASE stay at least 50 feet away from me at ALL times.
Rocky Mountain Oysters
You might be asking why oysters are on this list? Well, “Rocky Mountain oyster” is an innocent name for something super disgusting — it’s actually a dish of bull, pig, or sheep testicles. That’s right, the animal’s BALLS. Now, these “oysters” are usually served fried with some nice dipping sauce and a garnish of lettuce, but that does not take away the fact you’re eating animal testicles. But hey, you do you.
Casu marzu (rotten cheese)
I know people love to eat rotten cheese all the time, but this is something even more vomit-worthy. Not only is casu marzu cheese passed its expression date, but its also notable for containing live insect larvae. So go ahead, spread your casu marzu on a cracker and pretend like you don’t feel a bunch of maggots crawling around in your mouth. Anything to seem fancy!
All you do is let some pickles sit in some Kool-Aid for about a week and boom, you got yourself a cherry-flavored pickle. I wouldn’t recommend putting it on burgers or sandwiches, of course, but maybe try it for a science experiment or a snack at an 8-year-old’s birthday party.
I don’t understand the world and its interest in eating bugs — just let the bugs live and eat some ravioli. I mean, a cricket milkshake might seem okay since the ground-up cricket flavor would be masked by chocolate, but still… IT’S CRICKETS?! Apparently a cricket milkshake has twice the protein of beef, but let’s be real, if it came down to it, I’d gladly choose death-from-lack-of-protein over a cricket shake any day.
Sometimes I wonder what went wrong in our evolutionary process that made a human being go “Hey, let’s put a snake in a jar of wine and call it ‘Snake Wine‘.” It’s said that snake wine has healing properties, but it’s literally just a venomous snake in a bottle of rice wine so it’s OBVIOUSLY doctor-recommended.
