Prevention online has published an articled detailing 7 foods that should never cross your lips. It’s a good article but (of course) not nearly as complete as it should be. Especially for me (i know..you’re surprised). So let me suggest additional items that are better left on the plate, or store, or elsewhere…
1) Casu Marzu – you really don’t want to know about this. It starts as pecorino romano cheese, but then it’s left to rot until it becomes a fertile nesting ground for maggots. At that point it’s ready. Who’s brought the Triscuits??? (I’d put a picture up of this but it makes me gag)
2) Anna Nicole Smith – for obvious reasons
4) You know, of course, about the worm at the bottom of the tequila bottle? The Chinese have trumped that. In spades. Keep supporting those Chinese imports – Baby Mice Wine – this is disturbing. You’ve been warned.
5) Lima Beans. ‘Nuff said.
6) McDonald’s Strawberry Milkshake – Apparently, real strawberries are expensive. So fast food companies like McDonald’s choose to use a ridiculous concoction of 50 chemicals to effectively imitate the flavor of one real-world food. These chemicals include ethyl acetate, phenythyl alcohol and solvent. (source – guyism.com)
7) Olive loaf.
