What’s a food you will NOT eat even if you were offered money?

What’s a food you will NOT eat even if you were offered money?

Killertoilet

Depends on the amount. The higher the amount the shorter the list gets.


withouta3

This is what I am saying. For 500k I will wolf down anything short of debilitating poison


Emergency_Slice2487

Give me the poison for 500k. If I die, my family gets the 500k, if I survive, I get the 500k.


IllestMindOfDisThing

Casu marzu Edit: for those who don’t know what it is, it’s cheese with maggots inside Edit 2: we made it to yt: https://youtu.be/5u0GLKC-sug


notthesedays

More than that - it's basically maggot poop.


nationskr

I was just eating some cheese when I read this. urgh


FanHistorical4666

It's also illegal and sells for _100USD per pound._ Anyone who spends that much money on maggot shit infested cheese doesn't deserve to have money.


JamesR624

Why the-- #JUST WHY????


JJAB91

>Because the larvae in the cheese can launch themselves for distances up to 15 centimetres (6 in) when disturbed, diners hold their hands above the sandwich to prevent the maggots from leaping. What the fuck


TheDrunkScientist

Fucking hell. WHY????


Gimibranko

Aside from the fact that the food is gross could you imagine how annoying that would be?


InitialFoot

I looked this up on Google and wish I hadn't. Sweet baby Jesus.. just NO! The maggots jump at your face! AT YOUR FACE! I have to wonder about the first weirdo that tried that.


camilobogado

Hunger is a strong spice. Probably someone was low on options and when tried thought it was not that bad.


InitialFoot

I understand and being honest I have never gone hungry but with that said. If I have to remember to duck and weave and keep up my block while trying to eat.. I will probably just sit that meal out


Zron

I understand why starving peasants ate it. Being actually hungry is the worst feeling in the world and anyone would gladly eat anything resembling food after a couple weeks with very few calories. But why do these perfectly healthy people these days want to eat rotting food? I don't get it


jfkreidler

Came here to say this. Hell no. Nope. If I have maggots inside me, I better have already been dead 12 hours before they got there.


ModernT1mes

Nope. If there's maggots inside my dead body then Hanz better grab the flammenwerfer.


fuckin_anti_pope

What's also horrible about it is that the maggots are stomach acid resistant, so there is a risk they will settle in a persons guts by consuming them


Randalina000

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh


MisaMiwa

If there is such a risk like this, why do people continue to eat it? I take it they just don’t care if they have live maggots in their stomach?


Zack_Fair_

chance is virtually non-existant


Mesquite_Thorn

....IF YOU CHEW.


The_Grubby_One

Considering it has *happened*, I'm gonna say you might be downplaying it a bit. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_martzu >According to some food scientists, it is possible for the larvae to survive the stomach acid and remain in the intestine, leading to a condition called [pseudomyiasis](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myiasis#Accidental_myiasis). There have been documented cases of pseudomyiasis with P. casei.[[13]](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_martzu#cite_note-13)[[14]](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_martzu#cite_note-14) P. casei is the cheese fly. You know, the one used to make this cheese.


General1lol

Isn’t this illegal to serve in some European countries?


ccaccus

It’s illegal in both the EU and the US. In searching for this information, I also came across the fact that maggots can live in your intestines. I decided it was only right to share that tidbit of info.


SimsPteropus

But for how long?! You gotta share all the info for inquiring minds


ccaccus

All I’ve found is that some people were infested for more than four weeks with the maggots feeding on live and dead tissue, bodily fluids, and digested food before being treated. There apparently was a case of a one-year-old in the 80s whose mother fed them overripe bananas that were left in a hanging basket. Apparently flies laid eggs on the bananas and they developed into maggots in the baby’s intestines with the mother finding the maggots in the baby’s stool. That case lasted three months before the baby was properly treated.


WeAreNeverGoingToEat

Add this to my list of parental fears. Was this rotten or overripe? I have so many questions.


IllestMindOfDisThing

I think so


Jarvisweneedbackup

Its completely banned in the entirety of the EU, including the island it’s native to. Production as well as consumption. It’s literally only made black market style now lmao. Do try Pecorino though!! Its the cheese they use to make it. Like a milder and saltier parmigiano

CaptValentine

What in tarnation


Dudenowayomayo

I read this with Arthur's voice from RDR2.


SenorTeflon

Bulout. Spelling could be wrong but it's from the Philippians.


cATSup24

Balut would be the correct spelling, and it's also done in SE Asia


Bobby_Mcschloppy

that’s probably balut but an upside down crucifix? you’ve been eating the wrong street meat dawg


Ipad_is_for_fapping

Balut? Don’t remember the crucifix


Deadlybutterknife

As of 2019, the illegal production of this cheese was estimated as 100 tonnes


dHomoSapien

Oh god...I threw up a little in my mouth after reading this


C9ZUL

i was reading more and apparently when you eat it you are supposed to hold your hands above the cheese to prevent the maggots from jumping around.


miyaonigiri

this is the most disgusting thing i have ever read


Latinladiesmanbx77

Yeah i posted that cheese in another thread,, ive seen that on that show bizarre foods one time ,, i had no idea it even existed . Apparently its illegal in some countries but in those places , back country farmers still make from time to time


icerope1199

I’ve heard this is actually surprisingly delicious...but I’m still not trying it lol


jl_theprofessor

I went down the darkest path looking at page after page about this. I'm . . . ill.


GlossyYeet

Same here... that was absolutely sickening


BrokenFlowers7

But whyyy?


Svkkel

I've eaten this cheese without the maggots, it's really soft and a very smooth special taste. I didn't know until later that it was this exactly, but I don't regret it. It was delicious!


owlwayshungry

I'd eat it without the maggots on it probably if it was made by an expert. But not the live maggots.


Nacho_Beardre

I was gonna say scallop potatoes but definitely this


Gingerbread-giant

The fuck is wrong with scallop potatoes?


ReservoirPAWGS

Barb, your scalloped potatoes are FUCKED


wagmorebarkles

Why? Just why? Surely this wasn't invented out of necessity or good intentions. I just...no.


dunno-im-new

Most probably some wheels of cheese got infested by maggots and a poor cheesemaker decided to try and eat it anyways. Then they didn't die and perfected a technique. I think it would fall under "necessity".


InformerOfDeer

Duong Dua, or coconut worms. In some parts of Vietnam, it’s apparently pretty popular to eat live beetle larvae. No amount of cash could get me to eat this shit. https://youtu.be/FjjpcwABcQU


Applesaucetuxedo

In one of the entomology classes I took, the professor liked to gross out the class talking about food. Mostly about how we think our 1st world food is so perfect, but it’s really not. He did say the one thing he wouldn’t ever eat again was a palm weevil larvae. He said he ate it cooked and the gushing texture was something he could never get over.


ubsr1024

That "gushing foods" description made our first world food sound perfect by comparison though? Just how is it "really not" according to him?


CanadianButthole

Nutritionally, probably


Applesaucetuxedo

It’s impractical to mass produce food without some amount of “filth” in it. So there are limits. Most commonly it’s bugs and rat hair. Buy a jar of fruit preserves, use a sieve to wash out everything you can, then pick out the bug pieces.


brothulhu

I need the protein.


UnihornWhale

Adam Ruins has a whole bit about how it’s very affordable and sustainable protein. If they can find a way to make it palatable, I’m not opposed.


Youve_been_Loganated

Oh god. I'm Vietnamese and my wife showed me a video. She's like, they're a delicacy and they're delicious. Nope. Hell no. I wouldn't even go near one if it WASN'T food, I'm not sticking that anywhere near my mouth. Even some of my friends are into it, I just can't...


loCAtek

Yeah, anything that's still moving.


Taliel

I can't help but think of Reddit's infamous coconut story. No thanks.


stoncils_

I cannot see the word coconut on this website without thinking about it.


HazMama

Lol looks like tiny chopped of penises trying to crawl back and attach it self to its human


ShiraCheshire

Fun fact: One of the many things witches were said to commonly do during witch hunting eras was to cut off men's penises and to collect them. Up to 30 penises would be kept in either a box or a bird's nest, where they would wriggle around and eat oats and corn. People tried to pass this off as a real actual thing to justify witch hunts. History is weird sometimes.


micarst

Spiritual-Wind-3898

Willish32

live octopus


ChineseChaiTea

I'm not even a animal fanatic and I watch these people nail a octopus head to a stick and eat it, or the ones that wiggle on the plate... Its fucking cruel, I can't even understand the delight some of the diners shared in while eating shit like that. Fucking sadists.


ApizzaApizza

A lot of the ones that “wiggle on the plate” are doing so due to electrolytes (like soy sauce) being poured on them which causes their nerves to fire even though they’re dead.


usrevenge

There is a legit live squid or octopus food but I forget what it's called and it's apparently dangerous cause it will fight it's way down.


Sk8r-Boi-Cya-L8r-Boi

Tentacles, they can suction to your throat and kill you. A beautiful irony and revenge in death I feel.


C9ZUL

i enjoy octopus when it’s prepared normally, but i try to only have it like once every few years. damn shame of an end to such a smart animal.


ChineseChaiTea

In UK they are trying to get them registered on a sentient creatures bill, because their intelligence is more than a dog. I watched "My Octopus Teacher" and was well impressed at the survival skills they learn in such a short lifespan, with absolutely no guidance. I cant imagine what they'd be capable of if they spent longer than 2 years on earth.


Letscommenttogether

Cows are just as smart if not smarter than a lot of dogs. Just sayin.


Idontfuckingknow19

Pigs are smarter than dogs too. They're up there with chimps, dolphins and elephants.


whotookmyshit

What I'm getting here is that we should start eating dogs


BigAVD

As well as chimps, dolphins, elephants, and my brother in law.


yazzy1233

I have absolutely no trouble judging these people and looking down on them, I dont care what anyone says. It's fucked up and you have to be fucked up to do it


Daemeori

Most of the times it's dead. It's cut up and just the nerves are firing.


Daemeori

Most of what is called "live octopus" isn't actually live.


Joshinaldo

You should watch this Korean movies made in 2003 called Oldboy. The main character just stuffs a live octopus into his mouth. One whole live octopus. In Korea they have raw octopus but it’s cut into small bits without eyes and stuff you don’t want to eat. This guy eats the whole thing.


RageQ3

Even though I never see myself getting anywhere near it since I’m canadian, Swedish Surströmming is something I wouldn’t even wish on the people I hate


exsilverss

This was my exact first thought as a Canadian...except I had the displeasure of smelling it. I could not would not will never put that in my mouth. It is an actual war crime.


OldMork

but its not eaten like in all prank video where they vomit and eat whole fish out of the can. Its eaten outdoors in tiny pieces with flat bread, potato, onion and lots of alcohol.


exsilverss

I'm assuming the lots of alcohol is the important part? Jokes aside, I'm not a big fish person so the entire concept is sadly already lost on me...we can share though! You get the fish, I get the alcohol:D


PondRides

The alcohol is the main part, from what I’ve watched.


heavy_bender

Aye but you're sit gonna have to sit next to him and enjoy the whiff as you desperately tan a bottle of whiskey to try to erase the memory of ever smelling that "fish"


FriedCosmicPasta

Definitely the main part for the rest of the gathering haha! Seriously though, the bread, potatoes and onions and sourcream really come together nicely with surströmming and it's actually pretty delicious. I know most won't try it and it's not like you'll eat it often regardless, but it's worth tasting!


NotAboutWords

youre not supposed to eat it in the same place as you open it. it does not taste like it smells and being around the gases overtake any taste you might have


TyrantJester

Not even for 700 billion dollars?


WAslap

I'll eat a fish out of your ass for like $600.


Local_guineaPig

200, I'm a broke


exsilverss

Without a hesitation. I may be a pussy, but I'm also a shameless sellout


SafewordisJohnCandy

Having seen the YouTube video of the guy showing how it's properly eaten, I've wanted to try it of offered to me with the correct food items to eat with it.


turnturnburn

So I recently did exactly that..I'm in the US but I ordered a can, went out an got all the traditional ingredients ( ended up using naan for the bread) opened up outside in a pot of water and tried it and it was okay. Basically it's got a tangy taste to it. The best part for me though was that my buddy who was filming me eat, and who eventually took a bite, was involuntarily gagging the whole time. While it wasn't my favorite dish ever,I'm.glad I tried it.


Meastro44

What is it?


Kovdark

Why is everyone telling you where they are from before they offer their opinion on it, as an Irish person I find this very strange!


OmnipotentHype

Maggots, Cicadas, Roaches, testicles...


mailslot

Rocky Mountain oysters (balls) only taste like fried. It’s just texture to deep fry coating. My first time was at an all-you-can-eat place. Not as bad as I thought. Quite good, once I got over the thought.


CaptValentine

Ah yes, the quest in Far Cry 5 that finally made me give up the game in frustration at the weird superfluous bullshit it was making me do for critical path progression: rounding up bulls to cut their nuts off for a rocky mountain oyster festival in the middle of an armed takeover of Montana.


Mack_Damon

If you don't save the Fall's End Testicle Festival, then who will?!


FootfaceOne

Does frying them make them not testicles anymore?


Gooner141

What's special about testicles if you are okay with eating animal limbs, bellies, backs, probably organs, etc.? Also animal fluids, both fresh (milk) and fermented (other dairy products), and even eggs which are akin to ~~fetuses~~ period.


gay_space_moth

Eggs are more like the birds' period than their fetuses, but that doesn't really make it better.


TonyToneToneToneTone

Spiders.


jellybean090497

Wolf spiders taste like celery


TonyToneToneToneTone

It’s funny you say that because raw celery is literally one of two foods that I cannot eat. (Tho cooked celery is fine.) I don’t know why, but I can’t stomach it, it makes me puke.


darth_analfissure

Maybe because raw, celery reminds you of eating spiders, but you’ve done well to repress that memory


PachymuNyet

Crabs are pretty much big water spiders.


JBSConCarne

Long pig


BurgerPriesty

Never much cared for it.


Kangaroodle

mm mm, prion disease


derbrauer

My favourite - [Kuru](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuru_(disease))!


CaterpillarSmoothie

Only if you eat the head/spine though right? I'd try an amputated limb no probs though.


bouquetofheather

Balut


cometicklemypickle

when i was little, my grandma who has Alzheimer’s made me eat it once. i didn’t have the heart to say no so i just swallowed it straight up. felt it’s little body crack under my teeth. the only liquid she had on her at the time was Milo, a chocolate drink basically. a baby duck and a chocolate drink after is not the best combination.


jebidiah95

It shouldn’t be cracking. It was fertilized for too long


MisterWanya

I’m filipino and been told by relatives that it’s delicious, but nah i’m good Edit: for anyone who’s interested, some delicious Filipino foods you all should try are pancit (a thin noodle cuisine), siopao (steamed buns stuffed with meat), lechon (roasted pig fat) and lumpia (which are similar to spring rolls but better IMO)


Serpent_of_Rehoboam

I don't know how you can past the appearance. It's looks absolutely horrific.


mesled

Taste the crunch


pythagorias

Pizza is also delicious


MisterWanya

I agree. Much better than bird fetuses


Onlyanidea1

Chamorro here. Tried it once. DO NOT RECOMEND.


thestoneswerestoned

Apparently you can even taste the feathers and bones if the embryo is developed enough. Hard pass.


618dollarbaby_00

Casu marzu. That cheese with live maggots in it. Nononono.


pohlarrr

Peanuts. I’m allergic


YodasChick-O-Stick

I remember reading a Reddit comment where a kid with peanut allergies in school said "fuck it I want to know how they taste!", Ate a Reese's peanut butter cup and then stabbed himself with his EpiPen.


kutuup1989

Peanut allergy is serious shit if you accidentally eat them. I'm not allergic myself (I love peanuts), but I was once on a flight where they announced before take-off that they wouldn't be offering peanuts because there was a passenger who was severely allergic. Like, literally being in the same AIRCRAFT CABIN as peanuts could make them deathly ill. They didn't even need to eat them, just being NEAR them in an enclosed space was enough. Obviously they didn't point out which passenger it was lol. I'd never known before then that allergies could be that bad.


Stoghra

I remember


The5thGreatApe

Yeah, not worth it then.


EarthMagicYT

Tarantula Like come on that’s not even food


refused26

Not with that attitude!


bpvanhorn

I mean, I'd eat almost anything for the right amount of money. But it would have to be a fair amount of money to get me to eat a big spoonful of mayo.


USMCseth

Dog shit, and if you think that’s not considered food then tell that to my dog. He won’t listen.


QuiramJudaculla

My dog is mocking your dog as she gnaws on a lump of premium horse shit.


TheUnovanMimikyu

I pity that fellow dog. Dogs need to eat the best food for them like premium ultra-exclusive and expensive elephant shit.


my_best_space_helmet

I've really struggled keeping my dog out of the cat litter.


Zolo49

He’s a good boy who’s just REALLY into recycling.


JOEYisROCKhard

>I mean, I'd eat almost anything 😏


Alexstarfire

Is that an offer? Cause $20 is $20.


BradBBQPit

Touché


klc3rd

I’d criticize but I ate a stick of butter on a dare once… didn’t even get paid, so I could probably stomach a spoonful of Mayo lol


Badger431

I had a friend that drank a communal dip spit bottle for 200 between all of us, I put nothing beyond human greed.


klc3rd

I just threw up in my mouth a little thinking about that lol


bobo76565657

Mayo is just eggs blended with vinegar and oil. I don't get the hate. Unless your talking abot "Miracle Whip" which is... something else.


theGamerInside

To anyone that wants to pay me cheaper than this guy ^ ill do it for 5 bucks


e33ee3

Ftheindoors

Holdup…


Birphon

i mean if you think about it at some point someone in a crematorium is perfectly cooked


Equivalent-Cream-495

Lutefisk. Horrible.


burning_man13

I scrolled down for this. Those that know, well we know. I threw up trying it. Then, the house smelled like fucking lutefisk for the next day or so.


EupathicImpulse0

I was also looking for this. I can't understand wanting to eat something that can permanently remove layers of metal from the pot and knives and forks if you don't wash them straight away. What does it do to your insides.


Psych0matt

“You find the man with the horrible smell”


Animalion

Carolina Reaper (world's hottest pepper) I can't handle spicy food in general so I'm pretty sure I'd "die" if I ate that pepper.


Very_Cool_Man

Its spicy and all, it just doesn't have a very good taste in my opinion.


peon2

To each their own because flavor/taste is obviously an opinion but I'm the exact opposite. A lot of the time the "hottest pepper" or "hottest hot sauce" at a given time is usually just heat, no flavor. I actually like the taste of the carolina reaper sauce I have, it's more flavorful than the a lot of them that are just straight capsaicin


CarsenAF

Depends on the $$ lol. If someone's like "$5 to eat this kind of nasty thing" it'll be a hard pass. If someone says "Yo $1 BILLION to eat this fried deer asshole topped with a stepped on slug" I'll absolutely give it a go. A few moments of grossness and maybe vomiting for a lifetime of wealth? No question.


The_Reclusiarch

Eating a slug would make it a short lifetime of wealth. There was a kid who ate a slug for a dare at age 19. Slugs are riddled with lots of odd parasites and diseases, and that particular slug paralyzed him for the last 9 years of his life.


CarsenAF

Well RIP that kid but I'm built different


spew-tum

Whats the name of that italian cheese thats aged with maggots wiggling through it leaving behind the “cheese” they “process” by digesting it? Apparently people shield their faces with their hands while biting into it to keep the maggots for their eyes.


whatnameisnttaken098

Wait the maggots can jump off the cheese with that much force? I'm disgusted and interested at the same time


dirty_side_of_fun

Chitterlings


RainbowHearts

shitlins


TopRepresentative582

Used to eat these every thanksgiving. Just like eating flesh. 0/10 don't recommend.


mutant_llama

Lard. My parents loved lard sandwiches, but it just looks and smells revolting.


Vonneking

This must be a joke. I almost threw up in my mouth reading this. Bravo if that was your intention


Ravilla

Wait, what? Who the fuck eats straight up lard, you're suppose to cook with it.


VaultDweller77

In Romania we spread it on bread and eat it like that


bleedingfingaz

That’s some “survive the winter” food.


Communication-Wild

Patcha (dont know the English name but this is translated from how greeks say it) its literally lamb's insides +belly fat and for people that might say it cant be that bad, the smell is disgusting


rocket___goblin

almost sounds like Tripe, which is the lining of cow intestine. growing up in a spanish house hold ive had it in tacos and a soup called menundo.


shaunrmnd

In Afrikaans it's afval, but to me it actually tastes quite good


Nalurah

I am Dutch and the languages Afrikaans and Dutch are very similar. In Dutch afval means trash. Is that the same in Afrikaans? And if so why would they name a dish that, doesn't sound very appetizing.


Ender914

Fugu. No food is worth dying over


MSBEtheQuizzical

Master! You are needed in the kitchen!


Lakeland_wanderer

It doesn't have any real taste, it's a bland white fish like cod (source: have eaten it Japan).


erikjwaxx

My skilled hands are busy!


miaf1711

Bugs (crickets, roaches, ants, etc). Just couldn't.


LobcockLittle

I've had crickets before. They're pretty boring.


Fantastapotomus

Whale or dolphin, or really any endangered species or super exploitative food, like shark fin soup, where there is almost no benefit to eating it besides prestige.


DreamingFields

haggis and i'm Scottish. the smell of it around the kitchen table as a child still haunts me to this day.


sam_moses123

TheWonderingBunyip

The cheese with the live maggots in it.

Guinea pig, I love the little fur balls alive thank you


garlic_b

臭豆腐, (chòudòufu) Chinese Stinky Tofu, I would smell it being cooked on the streets in Beijing and would cross to the other side to just go around.


Daemeori

Not my favorite food, but the taste is nowhere near as bad as the smell.


Fantastapotomus

Tried it once, I live in an area with a lot of Chinese immigrants and figured I’m game for most things at least once. Literally tasted like what a moldy gym sock smells like, like one your teenage son wore a few too many times and then left to fester in a car during the summer. I have a pretty expansive palette but that might have challenged me a smidge too far.


jadethefirefox

Balut


librarianjenn

That egg delicacy that has a chicken fetus and an upside down crucifix in it, hard pass


Sharkflin

An upside down crucifix??


OldMork

Balut?


pitter_patterclock

A stew made of seaweed. My mother even told me I wouldn't eat ice cream if I didn't eat the stew (a huge deal for a 5 year old) and I didn't care, I wouldn't eat that thing. So I didn't eat the stew, can't remember if I had ice cream at the end, but I didn't eat the stew and I won't eat it now


DublinMarbs

Who even makes seaweed stew? Is your ma Old Gregg?
