5 Exotic Foods We Want To Try (Plus 5 We Really Don’t)

TOP ROW: Strange Foods To Try

1 – Durian fruit – Yes, durian isn’t all that exotic in many parts of the world. But here in the States, it’s hard to find fresh durian, and its rotting odor still makes this a choice for adventurous eaters.

2 – Frog legs – Again, a familiar dish in many regions. But still one we’ve never tried.

3 – Reindeer paté – Rudolph in a can? We’ve heard this is meaty and delicious.

4 – Bird’s nest soup – Ever since we read about this in National Geographic when we were kids, this exceedingly expensive soup has been fascinating to us.

5 – Mangosteen – They are slowly becoming more available, after a ban on their import was lifted, but we still have never seen one! We want to try this King of Fruits! Read more about mangosteen here.

BOTTOM ROW: Strange Foods to Avoid

6 – Balut – The embryo of a chicken or duck, still in its shell. A delicacy in some regions of Asia, but we’re too chicken to try. See one guy’s account of trying this.

7 – Casu marzu – A cheese from Sardinia that has live maggots inside. We could never do it!

8 – Kopi luwak coffee – We are huge (huge!) coffee lovers and conoisseurs, but that doesn’t quite stretch to coffee pooped out by an animal.

9 – Roasted beetles – They’re greasy, salty street food snacks in many parts of the world, including China. But eat a cockroach? No way!

10 – Fish sperm sashimi – Even Kathryn, the most intrepid eater we know, said she wishes she could take back eating this.
