Weirdest Foods People Really Eat [LIST/PICTURES]
Yeah, those are baby mice on a Maple Frosted Doughnut. Yummy, right? Well word is that they are a delicacy in China. How ’bout one of those with your Starbucks in the morning? I did some research on some of the craziest foods that people really eat around the world. Here are my TOP-3
3– Snake Wine, Vietnam – Snake wine is a bottle of rice wine with a venomous snake inside and has ‘medicinal purposes’, but is probably more useful for display purposes than to drink. The snake is left to steep in the rice wine for many months to let the poison dissolve in the wine. The ethanol makes the venom inactive so it is not dangerous, and snake wine supposedly has many health benefits. It has a slightly pink colour like a nice rose because of the snake blood in there.
2 – Fried tarantulas, Cambodia – They’re fried whole – legs, fangs and all. They were first discovered by starving Cambodians in the bloody, brutal days of the Khmer Rouge rule and have gone from being the vital sustenance of these people to a delicacy tourists come far and wide to try.
1 – Baby Mouse Wine, China – Baby mice wine is a traditional Chinese and Korean “health tonic,” which apparently tastes like raw gasoline. Little mice, eyes still closed, are plucked from the embrace of their loving mothers and stuffed (while still alive) into a bottle of rice wine. They are left to ferment while their parents wring their tiny mouse paws in despair, tears drooping sadly from the tips of their whiskers.
