We humans are odd. We claim evolutionary superiority over virtually all other species of creature that walk this earth and yet, we will stick a piece of dehydrated meat in our mouths and say it tastes delicious. Strange as it seems, there are several foods that are popularly consumed that even a dog would turn their nose up at. The following lists five of the most disgusting foods that are weirdly popular for no real reason.
Dehydrated foods do not sound too appetizing. There is a large and ever popular market, however, for dehydrated meat consumption. Jerky, be it beef, deer, or even alligator, is a popular delicacy throughout the UK and other parts of the world. Packaged in thin bags with little air, these packages give an odd scent when opened that floats to the nose as delicately as a punch. Homemade or factory made, beef jerky is a popular treat that has a texture like leather and a jaw exercising chew factor. Yummy.
BM Ice Cream
There is nothing like a great ice cream to cool off after a hot day or to add to your favorite dessert. There are some that are produced with regular cow’s milk while others use the creamy base of soy as their creative force. Now, however, there is a new trend that is becoming increasingly popular in which breast milk, from real live human females, is being used to create the creamy delicacy. Yes, strange but true is the fact that this type of milk is becoming increasingly popular in the creation of ice cream. Even stranger is the fact that more and more people are suckling at the breasts of women they do not know by demanding this milk.
It may not seem like a food in and of itself and you’re right, food coloring is not a food. It should, however, be a food group. Experts, whoever they may be, say that food should be as appetizing to the eye as it is to the palette. I do not think the first cooks on this earth, though, thought we would be dying food to make it more appealing. The fact is that artificial coloring includes digestible chemicals that are inserted into the body via the morsel we want to consume, all in the name of appearance. It seems strange how we even have to make food pretty. Again, not necessarily a food itself, but largely mass consumed in snacks and desserts, maybe it should be.
I know that Oysters are supposed to be a highly elevated almost intellectual food. But, quite frankly, they are disgusting. They have the texture of slime and consistency of a body fluid. They are eaten raw and slurped down to almost feign a great taste. Top restaurants serve these odd textured delicacies for a high price tag no less. The fact that people will pay for a food that is raw, from the ocean, and chewing optional is beyond my tiny brain’s capacity. I think I will pass on this raw delicacy, despite the popularity.
In some countries, eating the male member of an animal is a sought after delicacy. There is something, though, about eating another being’s nether regions that just does not sit well with me. No matter how popular they are, I just cannot bring myself to eat them and have to question why a region that is used for exiting should enter my body. Some popularity contests just are not meant to be understood I guess and finding the beauty in a bull’s private regions is one that I will just have to willingly lose.
If you like beef jerky but want to try something a little tastier, look for a biltong supplier. This is beef jerky South African style and even I like it – yes, it’s that good!
