The Weird Things People Eat Around the World


Half the fun of traveling is getting out and enjoying all sorts of foods you're not used to eating. A simple trip to the corner market or grocery store in a foreign land can keep you amused for hours. Take the example above for instance: Cone Pizza! This picture was snapped in Seoul, South Korea, and you know what? It looks pretty damn tasty. Can I get one in the States yet? Anywho, check out some other weird foods from around the world, and be sure and share your own experiences in the comments!



So is it pickled snake head? Or is snake head a type of fish? Either way, I'm not eating it. Spotted in an Asian market in Vancouver, British Columbia.


Black beans are good. Cheese is good. But black bean cheese? I dunno -- it sort of looks like a bowl of ash. I guess I'd try it; it is the natural black foodstuffs, after all.


Found in San Francisco.


It's tough to read the label, so I'll just tell you: it's cow lung.


Trout isn't that weird really, but they hardly look "live."


Spotted at the Raleigh, N.C. BugFest.


Ay-yo Adrienne... you got something in your teeth.


What's Haw anyway? Found in Beijing.


Scary.

Quit laughing. (U.K.)


Nothing like a Beijing street market to test your gag reflexes. Yep, still works! (For you brave souls out there, here's a video of someone eating one of those freakish black scorpions.)


Can you guess what these little buggers are? Click the photo to find out!


It's orgasmic.


These are candied cordyceps from China. I had to use trusty Wikipedia to figure out what a cordyceps is, and it turns out it's a type of fungi. That's not so bad!


For shizzle. (Too easy.) Oddly enough, you can buy this stuff on Amazon.


An edible menu in a Chicago restaurant. This is cool ... but I can't imagine you'd be hungry enough to order anything off of the gigantic menu you just stuffed down your throat.


Chocolate french fries in Seattle.


Someone spotted this candy corn soda in Target.


Artichoke-flavored tea in a can.
