How far are you willing to go to enjoy a rare delicacy? These foreign foods aren’t just delicious — they’re also potentially deadly!
Giant Bullfrog
Ever looked at a 7-inch-wide bullfrog and thought, “Mmm…”? Yes? Then carefully check the calendar if you’re contemplating eating this Namibian delicacy. 
Bitter Cassava
This shrub, native to South America, is a good source of carbohydrates but also a good source of cyanide which isn’t really what you want in your food.
Sannakji
Like your food tortured and eaten alive? Then you’ll love wriggling octopus, the food that fights back. 
Fugu
Just a sliver of ill-prepared fugu fish can send you into paralysis, swiftly followed by death. But if it’s prepared correctly, it’s delicious! Willing to take the risk? 
Ackee
Ackee, the national fruit of Jamaica, is literally a forbidden fruit. When the ackee is unripe, it is full of poison and potentially deadly to eat.
