Well, you read the title, so you know what you are getting into, So growing up, my mom always told me, you gotta try everything once baby, you don’t have to eat it if you don’t like it, but you have to try it. Apparently, my mom was a sassy black woman.

Anyway, that was good advice because it got me to try things that I normally wouldn’t try, especially things like sushi, which ended up being one of my favorite foods.

Unfortunately, no amount of advice could get me to try these foods, you will see what I am talking about.

Here are the 9 weirdest foods in the world.

1. Tuna eyeball

And finally, tuna eyeball. Found in Japanese grocery stores for about one US dollar, this comes surrounded by severed muscles and fish fat, and apparently, it tastes like squid. Which is weird, because,

I would have thought it tasted like tuna.

Prepared by being seasoned and boiled, this is a very common dish with many fans. You know, out of all the foods that I’ve shown you, this one doesn’t even gross me out. In fact, I’m cool with it. I just have a question,

What (beep) kind of tuna has an eyeball that big?

Do they have, like, giant mutant tuna in Japan or something? It looks like they plucked out Godzilla’s eye. Damn. Anyways, that’s all guys, Those are the 9 CRAZIEST FOODS in the WORLD.

I just wanted to share these with you, and hopefully, you weren’t too disturbed.

But hey, at least you learned something, right?

 

2. Casu Marzu.

Is that bread pudding?

No, it’s sheep’s milk infested with insect larvae. Yum! Found in Sardinia, Italy, translucent worms are added to the cheese to help promote fermentation.

Why would anyone do that?

What’s most disturbing is that some actually choose to brush off the bugs before eating a spoonful of cheese. Yeah, that’s right, some prefer to brush off the bugs. Not all.

“Oh god, I don’t do bugs, let’s keep it moving”.

 

3. Fugu Fish.

Fugu is the Japanese word for poisonous puffer fish. These fish are filled with a poisonous toxin and only a specially trained chef with years of experience can prepare it. Strangely, some chefs actually choose to leave a little bit of the toxin in the fish, which causes a tingling sensation on the lips and tongue.

What’s weird to me though, is that this fish is reportedly really bland, so why would you risk eating it, knowing that you could potentially die, or at least swell up from the poison?

Uh, hey guys, I think he left too much poison in the fish.

 

4. Hákarl

Popular in Iceland, Hákarl is made by gutting a Greenland or basking shark, and letting it ferment for two to four months, after which it reeks of ammonia. It’s available all year round and is often served as cubes on toothpicks.

Aww really, just little bites?

That’s disappointing. I was hoping for a large slab of ammonia-smelling fermented shark meat.

 

5. Frog sashimi.

It’s not easy being green. That was a terrible impression. In Tokyo, the raw, skinned frog is a popular dish. And if that isn’t fresh enough for you, some chefs will actually cut open a live frog, and pass the still-beating heart over to you for immediate consumption. Which is, believe it or not, a popular delicacy in some areas. After that appetizer, the rest of the frog is served in its entirety on a plate to you along with some raw seafood, Yummy.

Seriously though, who would ever want a still-beating heart?

Other than that one witch doctor guy from Indiana Jones.

 

6. Deep fried tarantula.

Oh god, no. That’s it for me, I’m out. We’re done, We have to get through this one quickly. Popular in Cambodia, tarantulas are deep-fried and eaten as a tasty treat. You can buy them individually, or in a pile to eat like french fries. Okay, let’s go to the next one.

 

7. Balut.

This one is Popular in the Philippines, Cambodia, and Vietnam, balut is a boiled chicken or duck egg, with an almost completely developed embryo. This is essentially their equivalent of hot dogs, which are sold by street vendors. You know, I’ve been an omnivore my whole life, but, like, this is the closest I’ve ever come to wanting to convert to vegetarianism.

 

8. Rocky Mountain oysters.

What’s so gross about oysters?
Well, as you can see from the picture, Rocky Mountain oysters aren’t oysters at all. In fact, that’s just the fancy name given to what they really are, fried testicles. Taken from either a bull, a buffalo, or a boar, these are popular in parts of Canada and the USA. They’re peeled, boiled, rolled in flour, and then deep-fried. Oh, and they come with a delightful cocktail sauce. (scoffs) Cocktail.

For real though, how does one go about procuring the materials needed to cook such a delicacy?
You would have some serious balls of your own to try and grab some bull nuts. Sorry, Bessie, but I got to eat dinner tonight.

This next one’s called

 

9. Fried brain sandwiches.

Perhaps you would like a nice chianti with this one, Clarice. Made from fried calves brains, this dish is popular in El Salvador, Mexico, and even the good old USA.

Apparently, brains have a mushy texture and very little flavor, so it’s highly recommended to use lots of sauces to help flavor it.
I have a question,

How disturbed is the person who came up with this dish?

Like, for real. Whoever you are, you need to just, like, lay off the zombie movies, because they’re influencing you a little bit too much. It’s a little bit unhealthy.
