Our differences and similarities make us, the human race, what we are. Food is no exception. While there are some truly incredible and tasty dishes all around the world that make us drool just by thinking about them, there are some that terrify us and make us think twice about what do we eat and consider it normal. From all of the bizarre street foods around the globe, here are the truly weirdest ones.
1. Deep-Fried Crickets
Deep fried Jiminy cricket! It’s widely known that some people eat bugs, but deep fried crickets are still somewhat misunderstood. We can’t imagine why.
Crickets are eaten in some African and Asian cultures, and they are often considered a delicacy.
There have been movements to promote the eating of insects in Western countries because of high protein content.
Alas, those movements had little to no success. Deep fried crickets can be eaten as they are or they can be dipped in honey, for instance. The crispy and sweet combination never sounded so weird. Then again, honey is basically bee vomit.
