I can’t claim that I’ve never eaten anything strange like a Hawaiian pizza or buckwheat with strawberry jam, but those dishes pale in comparison with some of the stuff you’re about to see. Some American dishes look pretty disgusting for a European, and I’m sure they have opinions about our delicious morsels too. Take, for example, their Jell-o salad or pickled pig feet! What century is this?
The bottom line is: Westerners enjoy eating some quite disgusting dishes, and we are here to judge them and cringe at their culinary preferences!
1. Spray Cheese
I love cheese, as I’m sure most people do. But how did this atrocity become one of the staples in American cuisine?
2. Blood Sausage
Yes, I know that blood sausage is delicious with some sour cream on top, but that doesn’t mean it’s normal.
Let’s take this funny-smelling rock from the sea and eat it! – was it worth it? No, no it wasn’t. Oysters are disgusting.
Our ancestors were using every single scrap of the animals they hunted, and that’s how the liver was introduced into our daily lives. You can do some amazing stuff with it, but it’s still icky.
5. Animal Tongues
Speaking of scraps, have you ever had, let’s say, a cow’s tongue? Put some mayo on it, that should help!
You take a chicken, stuff it inside a duck, and then stuff that duck inside a turkey. Whoever thought of this should rethink their sanity.
7. Deep-Fried Butter
It’s exactly what it sounds like – bits of butter are breaded and deep-fried in oil. It should be really good for your clogged arteries!
8. Pickled Pigs Feet
Do we even need to talk about this one? Someone at some point was pigs feet, and thought to himself: “I bet they’ll be mighty tasty after a few months in brine.”
This unholy creation will forever live in infamy as the worst ham product ever created. Why do you think they call unwanted emails and letters “spam”?
10. Rocky Mountain Oysters
Here’s the grand-daddy of all that is weird – deep-fried bull testicles. I cannot even fathom what was going through the head of the first person to make these.
