    What's the Strangest Thing You've Eaten

    I was recently on vacation and I saw a termite nest and remembered that I ate termites while in Trinidad four years ago. The guide during a hike poked his finger in a nest and termites flowed out, and he said they were edible. So I liked my finger to make it slightly adhesive, captured a few, and ate them.

    To this day, I still strangely crave termites. They had a very strong herbal taste, and the taste remained in my mouth for close to four hours. It was sort of like a super-charged Ricola cough drop.

    I feel like I've eaten just about everything minus endangered species. I love travelling and heading back home. Always new foods to try.

    I love ostrich burgers and giraffe biltong is also superb.

    I'll add something similar to fermented whale blubber.

    I wasn't pleased about this one and I would never ever do it again. Fermented raw sheep's heart/liver/lungs (Haggis) but it was yet to be cooked.. I hate Scotland.

    I didn't know haggis was fermented before it was cooked. Makes me want to eat it even less.
