Disgusting Foods That Some Cultures Actually Love

It's amazing how the human palate varies so widely across the world. What may seem like the grossest dish ever for Americans can be another country's delicacy. Every country and culture around the world eats foods that are completely repulsive to others. Did you know most people in China think cheese is disgusting? That creamy, cultured, sometimes aged and smelly pasteurized lump of cow's milk is absolute heaven for most people in the U.S. and Europe.

This is a list of foods that are appalling to Americans but are loved by others. Check out this list, open your mind (and your mouth) and go try some new foods! You may thank me later.

    Stinkhead. The name itself is enough to turn most heads away from this dish, and unfortunately, it's pretty much exactly how it sounds. Natives to Alaska’s frozen and inhospitable environment know a thing or two about sustainability – and they don’t like to waste anything. 
     
    The most distinguishing thing about stinkhead is not that they're fish heads, but that they are buried in the ground and left to rot (the preferred posh foodie term here is "ferment") for weeks on end. And what’s worse, they love letting them rot into a congealed mush of funk and slime and then eat them like a mushy fish head gruel.
