Elephant Poop.

There’s a company in Thailand that specializes in coffee made with elephant dung. They market it craftily by saying things like, the coffee is “naturally refined” in the digestive tract of the animals. Enticing right? Also it’s $50.00 per cup so even if it’s bad, you might as well pretend like it was a good investment.

Bird Nests.

A common delicacy in China is to eat the nests of cave swifts, who spit on the nests with a weird compound that hardens them. You can eat them in a soup or even in pudding. Seems kind of silly considering there were probably once perfectly edible eggs in these nests, but what do I know?

Sea Urchin Balls.

Known is “uni” this sushi delicacy is served around the world. Nothing more appetizing than eating the testicles of an animal you didn’t think had testicles.

Donkey Cheese.

Cow cheese, definetly. Goat cheese, sure, but DONKEY cheese? I dunno. Although I don’t want to eat the cheese of an animal that is sometimes referred to as an “ass”, apparently some people do because currently the price for “ass cheese” is worth $1000 per pound.

Fish Sperm.

As If sea urchin nuts weren’t enough to get the pallet going, you can also be served “milt”, or fish sperm sacs. A popular delicacy in Japan, it also acts as an aphrodisiac, if you’re into that.

Snail Eggs.

Also known as caviar, this dish happened when the French decided to make a delicacy out of the grossest part of the grossest animal. Of course they did. They’re French.

Forgive me for being a peasant and passing on the fish sperm sac, but I’ll take the gross parts of a pig and make a hot dog out of them over that any day.
