So those with a strong constitution should make their way to far-flung places such as Malawi, the Ivory Coast or North Korea where some of these crazy snacks are available.

...the likes of boiled rat, armadillo or caramelised locust...well, my good friend from Taiwan talks about how he used to eat monkey brains - the monkey was made to sit in the middle of the table, greeted with a suitable sentiment such as "hello little monkey", then smacked on the head with a hammer and its brains scooped out with a spoon - apparently it's all in the preparation.....
