A Twitter user, who goes by the name of ‘boy protagonist’, unleashed a storm on social media when they asked people from around the world to share their countries’ ‘weirdest’ food dishes.
What country are you from? What's the weirdest food you have there— boy protagonist (@porkironandwine) December 5, 2018
Tweeple from several countries including France, US, Brazil, Australia, and Germany replied to his question on Twitter.
Marrow bones in stew, hardware store sausages, larvae and ants are just some of the ‘odd but normal’ foods that can be found in countries around the world.
Care to Taste?
Here’s a taste of the social media responses that the tweet garnered.
1. France: Marrow bones in stew and sea snails called bigorneaux
France, and the weirdest normal food we have is eating marrow bones in stews. Or sea snails called bigorneaux. But nobody eats frog legs. That’s a myth— Potassium (@potassiumcomic) December 5, 2018
2. Australia: Hardware store sausages
Australia! weirdest is probably a bunnings snag, not because there is something weird about how the hotdog is made or tatses, but simply the fact its expected of you to buy a hotdog whenever you visit a hardware store— Fractured Clarity (@fractureclarity) December 5, 2018
3. Mexico: Snake meat

Scotland. A lot of weird foods but it's the only place I know where you can find deep fried pizza and calamari in the same fish shop. Also haggis pakora, I'm still trying to wrap my head around it— Wolesley (@LegendofWes) December 5, 2018
