Fans of chips and candy bars will we prefer to warn you: the below does not fit right into your western taste palette. Nevertheless, these snacks are real and are often as popular as bizarre. Tasty!
10. Fried pork skin
‘Pork rinds’ are hot and they are fried pork sheets. Some creations are just skin, others are skin with some fat. You can eat them pure or with a pinch of salt. Also spicy is an option. For many it looks freaking out, but fried pork is one of the most popular snacks in the world.
9. Fermented shark
In Iceland this sweetie is called ‘harkarl’. The snack is seen like in most Scandinavian countries (and regions). The shark in question is first caught, then pickled, and then dried for four or five months.Serving is just done in sliced cubes, such as cheese. The red, slightly tougher delicacy comes from the belly. The softer white delicacy comes from the rest of the body.
8. Black garlic chocolate
Chocolate with black garlic is a popular snack in Japan. It is a creation of Takko Shoji, which uses fermented black garlic. Shoji claims that his snack boosts metabolism. If you eat consistently black chocolates for sixty days, you get more energy.
7. Frozen duck eggs
It looks as horrible as it sounds, but some still find it a delicacy. Especially in Southeast Asia and the Philippines, this snack is a real hit. It’s called ‘balut’ and it’s a semi-shaped duck fetus, which is still in the egg. You crack the egg and drink the liquid. You spice the feta with pepper and salt and eat it raw.
6. Crickets on a stick
The cricket on a stick is popular in Bangkok and Beijing. The sticks can easily be obtained on the market. He is next to the baby snakes and birds, the scorpions and the mice.
5. Candy Crab
The Japanese candy can be spiced with exceptional sweet and spicy herbs. In addition, he just tastes like crab: savory, tender and fishy. We recommend this sweet to everyone.
4. Dried wild fish
We also recommend this snack with a good conscience. He sounds more spectacular than he is. Wild fish is just plain fish. And dried is also brine. The Chinese and the Russians are already fond of it.
3. Maden cheese
Casu Marzu or ‘Gerotte Cheese’, that is the name of this little racial appearance. It is an Italian (mainly Sardinian) cheese in which the Piophila fly has laid her eggs. Once they get out, the fly foods feed the way through the cheese. The enzymes they secretly give him a sore smell and taste, but also an extremely creamy texture. In Italy, casu marzu is often served on social high days, for example as a wedding at a wedding party. It is by far one of the most dangerous types of food .
If you have eaten squid already, you know how this snack tastes like. The squid is fried here in balls. It cracks a bit on the outside and inside it is rather tough. Made in China.
1. Ants eggs
In Mexico they call it ‘escamole’ and the snack is particularly hot. The eggs are harvested in the ant colonies that live at the roots of agave plants. They are picked out just before they undergo the metamorphosis to ant. For this precarious work, the harvester must have a special suit that protects him or her from stabbing. Ants eggs taste a bit like corn. Hence they are often served in tacos and lettuces.
