"Duck embryos, chicken feet, and live octopus. Watch Americans try these amazing Asian delicacies for the first time."

Too funny!

Watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, I see these foods alot. AZ seldom reacts to strange foods. The reactions these folks had are, I suspect, more typical of the average American.

NOT. "Fear Factor" with Joe Rogan also featured contestants eating this kind of stuff, along with spiders, worms, rotting sheep guts, etc. "Survivor" has featured a few as well. Balut in particular seems to be quite a popular choice. I've had durian, and once you get past the smell, it's not too bad.

I agree. AZ is there in the country, with the people, learning about their foods, so he wouldn't want to be rude.

I rarely watch those kinds of reality shows, Dawg.

You do see forced politeness sometimes. But a lot of his show he just eats the stuff and seems to like it or not care one way or the other. He's not often grossed out.

I appreciate his words "I always try something twice".

I haven't laughed that hard or that long in ages. I was in a bad mood before I opened that link. Thanks GG

I've seen fresh durian in the Asian-American store but I'm afraid to try it.
