It's weird food time again!This time,it's the totally weird arseCanned Food From Around The World!!

I have a strange fetish for trying weird stuff and chomping down on it,and some of these appeared in my52 Tips for Weird Food and Drinks.

They are usually food types that I'll never come across in my life ever again,so I'm keen to try them at least once!!

Most of the weird stuff I've tried has been devoured fresh,or cooked.Things likeMopani Worms from South Africa,,guinea pigs,and thefish that tastes like chicken.

But I must admit,I've steered clear of anything that has been available in a can!And I think this collection of meat in a tin I've featured here would even test my stomach!!

Probably the most famous tinned food available isSpam.In fact,it's a staple meat for many people around the world.I think we've all seen Spam on supermarket shelves in a lot of places,including your home country.

However,it looks like you can ‘can' almost any food that you desire!!

For me,the canned stuff will never taste as good as the fresh stuff.But I'm wondering if the fresh ingredients that entered these cans actually tasted palatable before being sealed off!!

Somehow,I don't thinks so!!

So come and join me on this strange (and possibly gut wrenching journey) that celebrates the world of canned food!!

Looks like this will satisfy any hunger pain you've got!Maybe not..

Jellied Eels – another amazing culinary gift that the English gave the world!I wonder if they taste as slippery as they look!If you're keen to try them,jellied eels are the result of boiling them up in a stock and letting them set.You then eat them cold!!

Actually,it's a tradition that's been around since the 18th century,so maybe they're not too bad!!
