5 Crazy foods Too Adventurous for Us

Over the last few decades, American culinary palate has expanded far more than meat and potatoes. However, even with the increasing supply of foods available to us, there are those that still lie outside the box. In this article, we will look at five crazy foods that are too adventurous for us.

1. Cambodian Fried Spiders

In Cambodia, these eight-legged snacks are deeply fried in garlic oil until they are crispy crunch. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization has already called on Western countries to start eating more insects, but does it have to be spiders. Did not they hear story about the little, old woman who swallowed the spider? It wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her. No thanks.

2. Rotten Shark
The Greenland Shark is the longest living vertebrate in the world with the majority of individuals living between 300 and 500 years. Their meat is also toxic, but when has a little toxicity ever stopped  people from eating something.

Hákarl dish on the Iceland is prepared by the fermentation of the Greenland shark meat and allows him to rot. The fermentation process breaks the toxin into the meat and makes it more or less edible. According to the Atlas Obscure article on Viking delicacies, the taste ranges from "suspicious and mild to strong like blue cheese ... with long-lasting retro-coke [which] can only be described as urine."

3. Italian Maggot Cheese 
This rich and creamy cheese made from sheep's milk in Italy sounds pretty tasty until it's discovered that the production process involves dozens of flies that put eggs in them. When the eggs come out, the larvae eat their way through the cheese and break down the fat as they leave. The process is responsible for giving cheese to its creamy texture and providing a unique taste. Here it is. The worms are still in the cheese when they eat them - to thousands of them.

4. Jellied Moose Nose
Long Canadian winters have obviously produced a mentality of waste-not-want-not when it comes to food. This dish is prepared by boiling down the snout of the animal with onions and spices. You remove the hair, then boil it again. After a few hours it solidifies and are consumed from the pieces. There is no need for the toast. It’s its own toast.

5. Live Octopus
It is considered a delicacy in South Korea, eating a living octopus, or sannakji, it can consist of eating a whole or pieces. The octopus is so fresh in this meal that  the tentacles are often still squirming while they are ingested. As if the idea of ​​eating live animals is not enough to turn the majority of guests, eating sannakji can also be extremely dangerous. Since animals are still alive, while swallowed, the octopus suckers can latch to the throat. In this way, the food can be misplaced, which leads to choking or even death. I do not know about you, but the possible death for me is too much adventure during dinner.

And maybe you do not want to try this at home ...
