We all have to admit the fact that we love to eat. Food is one of the blessings of the life, and we think that we should every day eat something special. But, by special, we don’t mean something like a fried cricket marinated in some special seasonings and special sauces? We, wouldn’t eat it, not matter what the seasoning and sauces are contained. And what about eating some fried spiders? Aren’t fried spiders yummy? All of us have probably loved the way our grandma was making her fried spiders.

#25 – Fugu – Japan
Fugu is the specialty in Japan. Have you ever thought to yourself about the possibility of dying during a delicious meal? Well, the chances of you dying during a delicious meal are quite slim. The only reason for you to die during a meal is to get choked.
But, in Japan, there is a food that could literally be your last meal, if it wasn’t prepared by an experienced and licensed chef. We are talking about a meal called Fugu. Fugu is a fish that contains toxins that are able to kill near 30 people. To become a licensed for the preparation of this meal, one must undergo years and years of intensive training. This weird looking fish can either be served in a stew, it can be grilled, or a paper-thin sashimi can be made out of it, but any small mistake in preparation of this fish would mean an end to the eater of this meal. If you are brave enough to try out this bizarre and possibly fatal meal, visit Japan in period between October and March, when the Fugu season is ongoing.
