Do you consider yourself an adventurous eater? Does the thought of chicken breast bore you? Does a cut of beef make you blasé? If so, good news for you: We’ve rounded up some of the weirdest and craziest food items out there — and you can buy them all online.
Now, perhaps you’re wondering what parameters we used in order to determine whether a food was weird enough. And if we’re being honest, we set the definition pretty loosely — which is to say we did some Googling and took an informal (and completely unofficial) office survey. But in order to be included here, the item had to be pretty damn strange. Available shipping in the U.S. was also a must, naturally. But enough of the requirements; here are our favorite food finds that left us goggle-eyed.
Nitrate-free rattlesnake meat
If you need a new source of protein, look no further than rattlesnake. It’s meaty, hearty and tastes like chicken — or so we’ve been told. Bonus: This bad boy comes in a can. Delish?
Smoked rattlesnake meat, $21.99 at Amazon
While these pastel puppies may look familiar, chances are you’ve never ingested them en masse… but now you can, in case you ever wanted to, that is.
Onion ring mints
We’re not sure why you would want to suck on something “onion-flavored” but hey, who are we to judge?
Onion ring mints, $2 at Amazon
Octopus is often considered a delicacy; the mollusk takes center stage in several European, African and Asian cuisines. But hey, if you’re new to the flavor, why not ease in with octopus jerky?
Moroccan octopus jerky, $17.99 at Amazon
Yep, you read that right. From bacon to mac’ and cheese to (ugh) even gravy, candy canes come in a weird, wide array of flavors. But Clamdy Canes? These suckers are just plain strange.
Clamdy Canes, $7.99 at Candy Favorites
Beer-flavored jelly beans
We love candy. We love beer. But candy-flavored beer? Eh, let’s just say we are not so sure.
Beer-flavored Jelly Belly jelly beans, $3.49 at Amazon
Apparently seafood-flavored random crap is pretty popular. I mean, just check out the previously mentioned octopus jerky and Clamdy Canes. But with their pork-rind consistency and fishy flavor, these chips take the bizarro cake. Seriously.
Calbee shrimp flavored chips, $4.95 at Amazon
Salted duck eggs
Sure, I love eggs — but who knew you could purchase the poultry product pre-cooked and salted? Not I.
Cooked duck eggs, $14.99 at Amazon
And, last but not least, this collection of strange sodas
Because nothing says “weird” like drinking ranch dressing.
