Kooky-Chew is dog food for humans

kooky_chew_dog_food

Have you ever heard about the urban legend about Soviet Union Olympic athletes, whose travel bugets were supposedly extremely tight? The story goes, that their “official” instructions were to buy dog food to eat, as it is relatively rich in proteins and calories.

Well, Soviet Union is part of the past, but there still seems to be some human interest in eating dog food. At least there is a product available, which looks like dog food, but is in fact meant for humans to eat. The meal consists of crunchy cookie cibbles with nuts, and as a bonus there’s even a candy bone to chew on as a dessert. How lovely!

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.
