Amanda hails from the great state of Maine. In the past, she's written for sites like,, and On ViralNova, you can catch her covering animal cuteness, travel, DIY tricks, and everything in between!

Traveling can teach us so much about the world. We get to know different cultures, different people, and perhaps the most interesting thing: the weird stuff people find tasty. Borsch chips - why not? Potato jelly - totally. Cheese fish sausages - delicious.

But before you think, "That sounds disgusting" (which it does), give it a whirl. You never know, you could end up falling in love with prawn cheese. Before you hop a plane back to the states, be sure to stock up!

1. Preserved Duck Eggs

Popular in China, these funky eggs are eaten during dim sum, at breakfast, and at snack time.

2. Prepared Shredded Squid

I love calamari, but without any seasoning or dip, this could lead to a serious case of dry mouth.

3. BBQ Bamboo Worms

I'm sure they're filled with protein...?

4. Gravy Candy

Like gravy so much you could eat it like candy? Wish granted.

5. Wasabi Kit Kat

Because I definitely want my mouth to be on fire when I eat a chocolatey treat...

6. Sandwich in a Can

There's NO way that's what it looks like when it comes out.

7. Placenta Drinks

These popular Japanese drinks are believed to give people a more youthful appearance. They're made with various animal placentas.

8. Asparagus Biscuits

Before asparagus fans get excited, these don't taste like the green veggie. Instead, they're only meant to look like them, and taste like black sesame. Lies.

9. Spotted Dick

Don't let the name fool you. This suet pudding (made with beef or mutton fat) with raisins is super popular in Britain.

10. Seasoned Silkworms

Sadly, these aren't instant gratification snacks - you have to boil these pre-seasoned silkworms before chowing down.

11. Salty Crab Bites

If you're a fan of goldfish, these mini crabs you can eat whole might pique your interest.

12. Clamato Tortilla Chips

Popular in Canada, this flavor is part tomato juice, part clam juice.
