July 16, 2016 | Saturday

Disgusting foods that people actually eat! These world’s top weirdest foods will shock you and have you grossed out

15. Sea urchin- If you want to know what the ocean tastes like, you can try uni also known as sea urchin. Sushi restaurants market the dish as an appetizer. The sushi is made from the reproductive organs of the sea urchin and it is prepared fresh and creamy. It is rolled into rice and wrapped with seaweed. You can top it off with soy sauce or eat it plain!

14. Cockscomb- You eat chicken legs, thighs and breasts. Now how about a rooster’s cockscomb? It’s that red crown like flame on a rooster and is actually an exquisite dish in Europe. The cockscomb can be added in any dish! It can be served in vegetable stew or can be presented with in rice pudding with various fruits. Although the cockcombe isn’t common in the United States, few select restaurants actually offer them.

13. Fugu- Fugu is the Japanese word for pufferfish, and can actually be toxic to eat if not prepared carefully. Only trained chefs are allowed to cook the fish, but there are at least four cases of people who have died from eating the dish made incorrectly and forty cases of poisoning. A typical dish costs anywhere from fifty dollars a plate to $200 a plate for a full meal. The fugu dish is an extraordinary dish and at least fifteen restaurants serve it with twelve of those restaurants being in New York.

12. Kopi Luwak- Everyone needs their morning coffee to function right? Kopi luwak or civet coffee is actually partly digested coffee beans that have been pooped out by the Asian palm civet. It’s one of the most expensive coffees in the world and costs at least $700 per kilogram here in the U.S. Due to the specialty of the coffee, the palm civets have been placed under a close watch by PETA.

12. Haggis- Filled with a sheep’s heart, liver, lungs and diced with onions, spices, and broth; you have one of Scotland’s national dish. It doesn’t sound very appetizing, but Scotland natives love this stuff. Haggis imports are actually banned in the U.S. so if you’re dying to trying it then you’ll have to make your own variation, which shouldn’t be so hard to do.

11. Bird’s nest soup- This exotic soup is made up the edible bird’s nest sealed together by the saliva of a swift bird. This dish averages a cost of $2,500! The Chinese have been making it for over 400 years and believe that it's high in protein and beneficial for a long life span. Imports of the soup have high restrictions and needs to have approval by the department of Agriculture and an import permit form from Customs. Geez, all that work for soup.

10. Casu marzu- This illegal cheese is made from sheep milk and is left to sit out for at least four weeks. Flies inhabit the cheese and burrow their eggs inside. After three months, the eggs hatch and the maggots eats the cheese and their stools creates a distinguishable taste. The cheese is still consumed while the larvae are still alive, if the flies are dead, that’s a sign that the cheese has gone bad. Make sure to thoroughly chew the cheese before you swallow because if eaten alive, the maggots can invade your body and tear through your intestines. Those who have eaten the delectable cheese have said the maggots moving around in your mouth creates a whole level of experience that you need to try for yourself. Mmm, no thanks, I’ll pass on that!

9. Wasp crackers- The Japanese call it senbei, it’s fun snack to nibble on, considering it’s jam packed full of wasps. It may not be love at first bite, but the wasps are baked into the cracker and have been described to taste like burnt raisins with a funny odor, but you supposedly can’t taste the wasps. You can purchase two bags of twelve crackers for seventeen dollars. Serve them to guests with a pot of hot tea!

8. Blood pudding- If you’re a vampire, then you’ll fancy some blood stew. This tasty stew typically contains pig kidneys, lungs, hearts, snout, ears and whatever else you can find, and is slow cooked in a dark vat of pig blood. It’s topped off with vinegar, chili and garlic to give it flavor, although I think the pig blood is just enough.

7. Giant water bugs- Although they look like cockroaches, they’re a bit smaller and are sauteed in chili sauce. They’re actually a popular food item in Southeast Asia and there’s a special way to eat them! First, you tear the wings off and pull the head off. Then you eat the white innards inside, it can get messy and sticky, but that’s all part of the fun. The taste is described as similar to runny scrambled eggs.
