We enjoy our food, even odd food like kale chips. And we are neither snobby nor necessarily squeamish, but when we find “food” that, on the surface or under the ingredient list, makes us cringe, it is our duty to share. You are welcome.

Duck, duck, gross

Balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. Are we wrong for wondering what men won’t eat if it’s considered an aphrodisiac? Most people eat the egg around the fetus and then snack down the baby duckling bones and all. While this may qualify as a whole food, we’re just saying, we would not eat this.
