9 Weird Eastern European Products That Are Totally Normal Overseas

Everyone knows America is better than Europe, but do you know why? It’s because in Eastern Europe, there are things that everyone accepts as normal, but they are notnormal. They are weird. And they’re all made of meat. Here are some of the weirdest products you can pick up on the other side of the Iron Curtain (if the Iron Curtain were still a thing).

Tripe Soup

Polish people love to take the part of meat that people throw away because it’s gross and then turn it into a weird soup. Case in point: delicious flaki zupa, which is tripe soup, which is soup made from cow intestines, which is gross.

 

Fart Bars

(source)

“Fart” means “luck” in Polish, so if you see someone eating a chocolate bar with “fart” written on the packaging, be cool — they’re not actually doing anything weird. If someone is eating it while actually farting, though, go ahead and laugh all you want.

 

Canned Herring

Herring is like the number one staple of the Slavic diet. And that proves that the phrase “you are what you eat” is complete BS, because if it were true, every single person in Eastern Europe would have turned into that fish by now.

 

Meat Jello

Fruit jello is for wimps. Real men eat Kholodets, which is a Russian jellied meat dish. It’s just as wiggly as American jello, but since it’s meat, it’s a lot more serious. Then again, everything in Russia is a lot more serious.

 

Creepy Crafts

(source)

Do you want your souvenirs to haunt your dreams forever? Then pick up something in Transylvania! It’s the home of Dracula, but it’s also the home of some seriously messed up folk crafts.

 

“Czech Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself” T-Shirts

(source)

The Czech Republic knows what it is and it’s owning it! Eastern European people are not known for their sense of humor, but this souvenir t-shirt is very punny!

 

McShrimp

If you don’t want fries with that, try shrimp? The McShrimp is Russia’s alternative to the french fry, and it comes with six different sauces. So basically, the side dish to your main dish in Russia can be a main dish anywhere else.

 

“Kitten Tongues” Chocolate

(source)

Kočiči Jazyčky translates to “kitten tongues” in English. This chocolate from the Czech Republic is shaped like (what else?) the tongue of a baby kitten. But despite their name and shape, they contain no actual kitten tongues (that we know of).

 

Deep Fried Brains

(source)

Vampires, not zombies, come from Eastern Europe. And yet, many Slavic people love to eat brains. Yum?
