Quick warning before I start! These foods/drinks might be a bit disgusting to some people. Weak stomachs, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
- The first drink on this strange adventure is called Wonderfarm Bird’s Nest. This drink is made from (weak stomachs don’t look!) hardened bird barf. While this sounds very unpleasant, it actually has many health benefits like smooth skin, a stronger liver, and an enchanced immune system. (listverse.com) This is also why the Chinese consider this drink to be a delicacy. (listverse.com) I have actually had this beverage, and let me tell you, it tastes a lot better than it sounds! I believe that it tastes very similar to a Werther’s caramel. It also has a bit of a chunky texture, which might turn off many people. (listverse.com) If you manage to find this rare drink, try it out, you might just like it.
- Durians have become more and more famous throughout the years by popping up on food review shows on Youtube, and by being the only food that Andrew Zimmern wouldn’t eat. The Durian, also known as the “king of fruits”, is a large, spiky, bowling ball-shaped fruit that is native to Southwest Asia. (wikipedia.org) It is famous for its extremely foul odor and even stranger taste. It is quite a heavy fruit that can weigh up to 7 pounds. (wikipedia.com) Although I have never consumed Durian, I have smelled its essence, and let me tell you, I have never smelled anything quite so putrid in all my life! Worse still, the stench lingers for a very long time! This is the reason why Durian is banned on almost all methods of transportation in Southwest Asia! (wikipedia.org) It smelled like the shoes of a person with the world’s worst athlete’s foot! The taste, however, is different for many, but, it has been compared to caramel or almonds. (wikipedia.org) It also is full of protein, vitamin C, carbs, and fats. (wikipedia.org) If you can handle the smell, by all means, try it. However, if you have a weak stomach or are sensitive strong smells, stay far away!
- Keep this away from Snoop Dog! Switzerland has created a drink that has Cannabis in it! The accurately named “Swiss Cannabis Drink”, is an iced tea that is made from hemp resin. (cracked.com) The manufacturers state that the drink is free of the high-making agent THC. (cracked.com) This product has actually appeared in the UK when a cafe handed them out to CHILDREN at a school event! (cracked.com)
