Top 10 Nastiest Foods On Earth
10- Casu Marzu – (Pecorino Cheese)
This is the worlds nastiest cheese. It is so nasty that it has actually been outlawed. How does it taste you may wonder??? Well it is full of juicy insect larvae, and slimy fat that they have created. If you can make it past the smell you still have to deal with the maggots in your mouth as you are trying to chew it. I am getting sick even sitting here writing this.
9 – Human Placenta
My first thought was NO F—ING WAY! I researched it a little further and sure as shit it was true. People in modern America, Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, China, and the Pacific Islands, believe that eating the placenta prevents postpartum depression as well as other pregnancy complications. I wondered if this was a form of self-cannibalism? Well a little further research revealed that the placenta is considered a temporary organ, can was not considered to be cannibalism.
Who in the hell thought that this would be a good idea?
8 – Pacha – or Sheep Head
Believe it or not sheep’s head has been and still is a traditional delicacy in many regions of the world, such as the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. Some times they have what is called sheep head soup – OMG (I have vomit in my mouth – BRB).
When this dish is prepared it is sometimes served with the brains intact. People that eat this often argue over who gets to eat the eyeballs and the tongue.
7 – Bat Soup
WTF… Bat soup? First and foremost that bat in the photo is one big ass bat. While researching this subject I was shocked as hell to find some sites had dedicated sections of various ‘bat recipes.’
Bat as a meal has been popular in Thailand, Guam, and parts of China as well as other regions of the world. I’m not sure if they realize this or not, but bats are notorious for carrying diseases. If not cooked right this could vary well be the last meal that you eat because it could actually kill you.
Better yet, I recommend that you do not try it.
6 – Bull Testicles
There are cultures that actually believe that by eating the testicles of a dead animal was considered a source of virility. I have spoken to a few people who actually enjoy eating testicles and was told that it is very tasty. Pig testicles are also a tasty treat. It is said that pig testicles taste way better, and has more flavor.
5 – Donkey Penis
The word is out… The Chinese love donkey dick, and coincidently that is what they called me when I was there on vacation. Further research showed that they were not talking about me, they were talking about the animal (I guess thats good news ).
One thing I can say about China – anything eatable is fair game. They boil or fry it in oil, or let it dry then slice it like salami. It is then presented on a lettuce platter.
4 – Fried Spider
There are many countries that love the taste of spiders. However in Cambodia they love to eat fried spider. After interviewing a few natives of Cambodia I am told that fried spiders taste like crispy chicken. Why do they always say things taste like chicken? Why not eat chicken instead?
3 – Guinea Pig
As a child I had a pet guinea pig. So imagine my surprise when I found out that this is a popular dish from Peru that is served at festivals. In fact guinea pigs have been a traditional dish since they pre-inca times.
2 – Hairless Boiled Rat
There are restaurants in Taiwan who display the hairless rats in their window before cooking them. They catch the rats in near by fields and feel that it is better than eating rats that roam the sewers (personally this should not even be a debate. LOL a rat is a rat).
They boil de-hair, and season rats, then serve them on a plate with optional dipping sauce.
1 – Balut or Duck Egg
I first heard about this when Czardell told me that she and her father loved to eat Balut. I was like – what the hell is Balut? She found a picture online and sent me the link and I almost vomited in my mouth. OMG – this shit was N-A-S-T-Y.
After thinking about it for a second Czardell brought up a good point. She asked how could I say I do not like it, if I have never tried it. For a split second I thought that she had a valid point. Then I thought, I never tasted boiled donkey penis either but I know I do not like it. So at the end of the day I have to say…. HELL NO – TO BALUT!
