Frightening food

Just in time for lunch: The World's Six Most Terrifying Foods.


  1. Heh. I had lutefisk in Sweden for Christmas a couple of years back. Not really gross per se, just insanely flavorless. It's like eating a texture (and not a very pleasant one). The idea is you smother it in sauce to give it some kind of flavour - my girlfriend's Dad was the only one who made any pretence of actually enjoying it, to me it seemed liek a bizarre Christmas penance ritual.

    Surprised lutefisk made the list when surströmming missed out - Google that one for gross Swedish foodstuffs...


  2. I thought I was an adventurous diner - but apparently not. That baby mice wine was the worst, I think.

  3. Sheep's head for dinner? Delicious. I had one in Kuwait in the mid 1990s.

  4. I'd have the sheep's head with no problem. I would eat the maggot foods on a dare. But the others ...

  5. Wasp maggots at Hokitika. They pop like fish roe and taste like honey. Yummo.
