From Grilled Spiders to Maggot Stew
Weird Food Cover
The French eat frogs' legs and Australians eat crocodile; that’s not so out of the ordinary. But have you ever thought about chowing down on cow lips? What about a salted scorpion? Revealed inside are the peculiar, exotic and occasionally questionable dinners and delicacies from around the world. And remember, these meal choices aren’t considered “weird” to everyone, so keep an open mind and an open mouth, and maybe you’ll find something you’d like to try…

• A whole new meaning for “pet food”—picture Fluffy on your plate
• Why about 20 people a year die after eating the Japanese “Seafood Special”
• What all the rage is about marmite and vegemite
• Why someone would pay more than $300 for bird saliva
• Baby mouse wine and Korean soju served with live baby octopus
• Geophagy—eating dirt
• Even outside Transylvania, people still eat blood pudding and blood sausage
• Food safety laws that allow some insect parts in peanut butter and chocolate!

And so much more…
