The whiff of fermented shark, sheep eye juice and bull penis is leaving people physically sick at the new Disgusting Food Museum. But anyone thinking of visiting the newly-opened attraction in Malmo, Sweden may be relieved to hear that entrance tickets also double up as sick bags. Among the dishes on display are a dead mouse in Chinese wine, maggots in cheese, grasshoppers and Vegemite. There are also stuffed guinea pigs, dry turtle soup, soybeans fermented with bacteria, spicy rabbit heads and fruit bat soup. But it’s the Icelandic fermented shark which “tastes like chewing on a urine-infested mattress” that is being dubbed the most grim. The collection of bizarre food is aiming to challenge perceptions of taste and help visitors contemplate why one culture’s abomination is another’s delicacy.
Question: What is the most disgusting thing you have ever eaten?
