A Taste of Death

Food glorious food! If you’re anything like me, you’re hungry approximately 24/7 and always looking for that new and exotic flavor that will bring ecstasy to your tastebuds and fullness to your stomach.

Are you a picky eater, or would you be willing to try anything once? Well unfortunately, even once is enough to kill you if you aren’t careful. Farmers, chefs, servers, and eaters have a major responsibility to grow, prepare, package, serve, and eat food with care and dignity to ensure that the products we ingest are clean, safe, and edible. But for some people out there, half the fun is in the risk.

From some of the most common items you’d find in your fridge to the rarest of delicacies, these are the most dangerous foods in the world that people still love to eat.
