This traditional Chinese and Korean wine is considered to be a "health tonic." Although this list is in no particular order, I must say that this has to be the grossest thing that anybody can bear to swallow.

When I hear the word "mice," I think of a flea-infested, dirty, little rodents parading the piss-filled streets of New York City. I'm sorry, but that's where they should be: out in the streets, not in my wine.

Casu Marzu is a type of cheese that has to be left in the sun until it becomes rotten and full maggots. The process of producing this cheese is considered a process of finely metered fermentation. Sometimes, when disturbed, the maggot larvae can "jump" for distances up to 5-6 inches—some prefer to scrape the larvae out before consuming for this reason. This maggot-infested cheese is so gross and unsanitary that it will not be found in any parts of America.

A Soft Boiled Fetal Duck

This is called a Balut. It is a fertilized duck egg with an almost developed embryo in it. So how would someone eat this thing? Well, it's as simple as boiling an egg. In fact, that's exactly what you do: boil, peel, dip it in your choice of salt or vinegar, and then EAT IT.

However, don't be fooled by how it looks after you peel it; break it in half and you'll see an almost developed little duck, with feathers and a beak. Can you imagine taking a bite of this egg and pulling out Daffy's head from your mouth? Gross!

Surströmming

The Scandinavians land on this list once again. Surstromming is a Swedish staple consisting of fish that has been fermenting in a can of bacteria for an extended period of time. Horrifyingly, the fish's resulting stench is usually so foul that Swedes have to take it outside to eat it. We're not sure why anyone would continue to eat something after literally being forced out of their own home by how disgusting it is, but whatever. Apparently it goes well with sour cream.
