All of us have, at some point, put something strange and (possibly) wonderful down our throat. Raw scallops off a boat? Tinned cat food? Tête de veau? (If you’re squeamish, do not google the last one.) (Seriously, don’t.)
Whether you meant to eat it or not, we’re sure there’s plenty of temptingly bizarre food in your history.
We asked around America’s Test Kitchen for some wild eating adventures, and the answers ran the gamut:
I ate puffin while backpacking through the Faroe Islands a few years ago. Puffins are plentiful and widely eaten in that part of the world, and the heart is especially prized. It tastes like exactly what it is: a small, active bird that subsists on oily fish. After trying a bit of a leg, I declined the heart.
It’s not that exotic, but Katsuobushi, those dried fish flakes, always weird me out because they move and dance around!
Neutrogena Hand Cream. Growing up, we always had it around the house. For some reason, I thought it was delicious. I still really like the smell of it.
And now for the Silly Question of the Day…
What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Bring on the freaky.
