What is the most bizarre food you ever had???

Been thinking of this idea for days now and in my travels the most biZarre food i ever had was Dinuguan or pork blood stew.i had it a couple of times whenever i go back to the Philippines...it takes getting used to but it is an interesting dish paired with puto or rice cake. Some would be amazed why eat blood but it is common dish especially in Asian cooking. The second food that comes to mind is Alfalfa Paletas/popsicles...my friend brought some the other day and it has an interesting bittersweet taste..
WHat's yours????

Bugs at the local bugfest.
Ant enchiladas
Mealy bug cookies
Scorpion stir fry
There were some other dishes too.
Sadly, the dishes themselves were poorly done and
would have been bad without the bugs.
Except the cookies.. the bugs added a nice nutty flavor and
the cookies were good.

Groundhog? Tasted like beef, and I didn't cook it long it enough, so it was tough.

Smoked bat. It was considered a delicacy on Guam in 1976.

(Actually, I think some things are called a delicacy so that you only have to eat enough to be polite, but not enough to get ill!)

We have had threads like this before; don't see any reason to repeat.

Having said that I regret to tell you that I have had:

Hedgehog
Squirrel
Snake
Nutria
Pigeon (not that that’s any kind of bizarre food)
Horse
