Desserts should always be sweet and tasty, right? It’s not like you can fry a bunch of crickets and dip them in chocolate… right? Oh boy, we’re in for a savory bumpy ride it seems.
Here are 10 strangest desserts from around the globe!
1. Wasabi Ice Cream, Japan
Who would ever thought that flaming-hot wasabi can become an ice cream flavor? Apparently, nothing’s off the table for the Japanese. Reportedly, the ice cream part of the dessert kills the the spice almost entirely and leaves only a slight tingly aftertaste.
2. Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream, Philippines
Ah, good, more ice cream! This time with a twist: it’s ice cream dipped in liquid nitrogen! Actually, you can dip all sorts of snacks and if done properly, it’s supposedly extremely tasty. I’d probably chicken out.
3. Wasp Crackers, Japan
Here we go, our first bug-related dessert. So these cookies, instead of chocolate chips, are filled with wasps! What else do you want to hear? Flee, you fools!
4. Cendol, Malaysia
Eww, are those worms? Thankfully, they’re just jelly noodles mixed with some coconut milk, palm sugar, red beans, and shaved ice. No idea what went through the head of the person who created this dessert, but he/she definitely wasn’t sane.
