Unusual Foods From Around the World

Casu Marzu, found mostly in Sardinia and Corsica, is a cheese infested with maggots, which are capable of jumping up to half a foot when disturbed

This grouping of foods from countries all over the globe is not only unusual, but in quite a few instances, I daresay it's downright disgusting. Fried spiders, rotten eggs, larvae-infested cheese, roasted guinea pigs... these are things I can't conceive of getting close to, much less eating. Of course, one woman's disgust is another's delicacy. If such treats have an enthusiastic market in some parts of the world, I shouldn't be one to judge. In fact, there's a epicurean adventurer and writer right here at Neatorama who just might have an open mind enough to sample some of these treats. *cough* Farrier *cough*

I got thrown off Yahoo Answers for saying you could eat guinea pigs. Some kid asked what they could do wiht theirs and I said "You could eat it." and posted a link to the Wikipedia page. Nothing impolite, nothing offensive - but after some years of helpful answers, that got me kicked off. Appeals fell of deaf ears.
Silly sods.
