Balut - Most Terrifying Food In The World?

"They are typically sold by street vendors at night, out of buckets of warm sand. You can spot the vendors because of their glowing red eyes, and the faint, otherworldly sound of children screaming."

In's funny tongue-in-cheek article of "The 6 Most Terrifying Foods in The World", Tim Cameron reviews ant eggs, baby mice wine, boiled sheep egg, casu marzu and balut. Can you guess which gets the top spot as the most terrifying food?

I think he's over-reacting but it definitely put a smile on my face. Read his review and let me know what you think.

The writer isn't over-reacting man. A balut looks like a prop from an Alien movie.

It's been featured on Fear Factor! And it drew tears from the contestants.

I'm Canadian and have been living in the Philippines. Balut isn't so scary. Quite frankly, it's good. Don't know about it being an aphrodisiac, but it's tasty.

The review was hilarious. I agree, though, Balut does seem pretty scary !
