Balut – a boiled duck embryo from Cambodia

Do you fancy eggs? me to – just prefer to eat them before the embryo inside has a peck an feathers. The people in Cambodia apparently think differently, as a duck-egg-delicacy called balut is a great treat loved by the locals. The trick of preparing balut is to let the the embryo inside the egg to develop until the bird inside is nearly ready to see the daylight. When the embryo inside is right, the egg is boiled and served with a pich of salt on top.

The Cambodian locals enjoy their Balut normally as a night time snack, accompanied with a cold beer.

Absinthe lollipops

Personally I think that Absinthe tastes pretty much what I imagine that rat poison would taste like. Then again, there’s always the possibility of “cool hallicinations”, when consumed in substancial abounts. A private candy company lollyphile has come up with an idea to manyfacture lollipops out of absinthe. “made with real (and completely legal!) absinthe”

Awailable to order today for the price of $10 for a box of four.

Rare frogs + blender = gutted frog cocktail

Here’s yet another odd consumable, I really think the world could live without (you can blame me for being narrow minded). These frog cocktail are made by skinning live Telmatobius frogs and droppin them into a blender with other ingredients. This health-drink, which is said to have aphrodisiac properties, is §mighty popular at the Andes.

The frogs used for the cocktail are endangered species as well, and therefore the local officials are trying to stop the tradition, with little success so far.

Baby mice wine

What would be the most discusting substance you could imagine flavouring your wine with? Well, I’m sure baby mice would not come too far off?

Baby mice wine is a traditional Korean health drink, which is brewed by drowning alive baby mice, maximum three days old, in rice moonshine and letting them to ferment in the bottle for about a year. According to local Korean belief, mouse wine is a cure to just about any illness imaginable, includin asthma and liver problems among others.

If mice wine does not do the trick for you, do not forget to try out the Cobra Schnaps we reported on a few days ago!

Chewing gum that makes you smell like roses

A new japanese chewing gum called “Otoko Kaoru” does not only refresh your breath, but also makes your whole body smell good. Chewing gum called “Otoko Kaoru”, which traslates to “man scent” emits rose smelling oils when being chewed on, causing the chewers whole body to start smelling like roses few hours afterwards. The whole thing works in a similar manner as garlic, or alcohol, which also affect the smell of the person who has digested them – only in a less positive manner.

A spokesperson for the manufacturer has told, that the “man scent” chewing gum has already proved to be so big success, that they could not meet the demand in the market.

Cobra schnaps

Here’s a drink that you can propose a memorable toast with. I particularly love the detail where the cobra is holding a smaller snake in it’s mouth. The drink was found a vietnamese liquor store.

I wonder if anyone has ever actually drank this stuff?
