1y ago

Hákarl – rotten shark

  • Absolutely not
  • Sounds gross, but maybe
  • I'll give it a go
  • Whatever, I'm hungry

Century egg

  • Ew, no
  • If I absolutely must
  • Sure, OK
  • I've eaten it already and will have another please

Escargots – snails

  • You're kidding?
  • I've heard of that... maybe I'll give it a try
  • What's the worst that can happen?
  • I snack on these all the time

Bird's nest soup (made from swiftlet saliva)

  • Why do people eat this?
  • I know it's going to be weird but I'll take a tiny bit
  • Sure, I love a taste of Asia
  • It's soup, what's the big deal?

Fugu (it's pufferfish – and if prepared incorrectly, it's poisonous)

  • Not only is it gross, it's dangerous – nope
  • Is it cooked safely? Maybe i'll have a small bite
  • That sounds adventurous. Yes!
  • I eat fish all the time – of course!

Rocky mountain oysters (despite the name, these are deep fried bull's testicles)

  • So gross they can't even call it what it is
  • It looks like a big chicken nugget but I bet it's disgusting. I'll try it
  • If we are going to eat the whole animal, that should include the balls. Yes please
  • It's basically beef

Shirako – cod testes

  • What is it with you and reproductive organs?
  • I accidentally had it and it was OK
  • Oh, like sushi!
  • Again, it's basically fish... what's the problem?

Sweetbread – the thymus or pancreas of a cow/lambs

  • So we are eating glands now?
  • It was tasty. I didn't realise what it was
  • If it's good enough for fine dining, it's good enough for me
  • I'd stick it in a sandwich and never even think to mention it


  • I would run away from that or swat it with a rolled up newspaper
  • One jumped into my mouth once. It wasn't disgusting
  • All my friends have tried them, and I definitely would
  • It's just protein – and better for the planet, too

Bheja – fried goat brain

  • There is just no need
  • I know it's going to be weird but I'll taste it
  • I'm all about trying new things
  • No point in it going to waste!
