  • I heard that they are delicious and taste like egg. I don't know how I'll like it with salt and vinegar only but since it tastes kinda like egg I guess I'm gonna like it. I'm not a big fan of duck meat or egg either.

    It looks bad, but hey, if we can eat egg and meat of duck then why not this?

    Overall, yeah I could try it.

    Also, I've seen on the Internet people shaming those ho eat balut normally and like it. Just saying, people need to stop shaming other people's food/cuisine. Cause no matter what people consume, shit stinks the same way for everyone.

  • I would try it just to see what it tastes like and to experience something new. But based on the videos I've watched it's best to just down it and not look at it to much because it might freak you out lol.

  • I am pretty open to trying new foods in general so I would try it
    It does not look or sound that appetizing though so I am sceptical but till you try you never truly know

  • My boyfriend is Filipino, his family and him eat balut as it's a delicacy in the Philippines as well. I've been offered it a several times, but just can bare the smell or the thought of the texture.

  • I mean I would try a lot of things but that sounds very morbid, I don't think this would taste good enough to be worth it
