Casu Marzu - Italy
We all love pizza and lasagna, sometimes spaghetti too. But would we ever be able to enjoy a Carzu Marzu with a bottle of Italian wine? Casu Marzu is known as rotten cheese, which is made of Pecorino(A type of Italian cheese). When the cheese goes really bad maggots are added to it so that the person who eats it can enjoy a rotten cheese with maggots.
Balut - Philippines/Vietnam
Yeah, it's really - Yuck! The balut is a fermented egg with the partly developed embryo inside. I tis boiled alive and is eaten with salt, chilli, and vinegar. First, you've got to tap a hole on the top and then slurp the liquid out, next start eating.
Boshintang - Korea
Well, enjoy a soup of dandelions, onions, a host of spices and dog meat! This is said to be popular among the older generation of Korea. "개고기 Gaegogi" is the Korean term for dog meat, and they have a festival for having dog meat where probably boshintang is being served.
Shirako - Japan
So, there comes Japanese food. Shirako in Japanese means "White Children". Shirako is the sperm sacs of cods, angler fish or puffer fish. It is said to have a sweet custardy taste.
Haggis - Scottland
What's this? Haggis is a Scottish food made from sheep's inside parts. This is actually a sheep's stomach tightly packed filled with sheep intestines, lungs, heart, liver, onion and some spices before it's boiled and served!
Rotten eggs - China
Whatever the energy it gives, I don't want to eat it. These eggs are also known as hundred-year eggs or pidan. These eggs are been covered in clay, ash and salt for months, by which time the yolk is dark green and stinks of sulphur.
Termites - South Africa
They say it tastes like carrots! Rural South Africans eat them to get some protein and you can find them fried and roasted, but usually consumed raw.
Geoduck - Pacific
Whatever it looks like, forget about it. Pacific Geoduck is a species of very large edible saltwater clam. Geoduck is native to the west coast of North America. The shell of the clam ranges from 15 cm and is 20 cm in length. Couldn't find what it tastes like.
So I hope you enjoyed the myTake about weirdest food. If you know any other weird food around the world or if you've tasted any of them please leave a comment to share your experiences with others.

In some place in Africa (I think along lake Victoria), there's a time of year where literally billions of flies fly around the area. So much so that the sky is covered in flies. Well, the locals go out with nets and shit to catch them. They get a shit ton. Enough where they, then, make fly patties out of them and boil them. It looks absolutely disgusting, especially when you see them get eaten. They have stupid high amounts of protein (like 2x that of a burger), but still. I nearly vomited when I saw that shit 😖
