Good Eatin': Weird Food From Around the World

"Nearly every culture invents a food that is weird or disgusting to outsiders. These seaslug strange foods from around the world are cultural markers to show who's a member (insiders like it) and who's not a member (outsiders hate it)....For example, many cultures pride themselves on their foul-tasting local drinks, such as white lightning, pulque, chong, retsina, and so on. You're accepted if you drink it....Foods don't make it onto this list just because they are unpopular. Some people hate broccoli. So what? Weird foods get on this list because they are cultural markers. There's stuff you like (such as hakarl) (and you think is normal) that other people refuse to even allow in their house." -- from the website. <>
