Haggis makes the list while durian doesn't?

Bollocks.

There are a couple on there I would try, especially the Kumis. Mare's milk played a large part in the largest land empire the world has ever know.

I see they've got haggis covered.

You might get my taste buds to beg for mercy, but you'll never get them to use the safe-word.

No chitterlings? No one under 40 even knows how to clean them the right way or even want that smell in their house, so I expect them to go extinct.

Haggis is pretty good. Durian, however, smells so terrible and foul, it could taste like salted caramel, but would cause most people to vomit and gag. And durian tastes nothing like salted caramel.

Casu marzu is also dangerous as improperly chewed larva can survive the stomach acid and eat holes in your intestines, where they lodge themselves and cause severe internal bleeding.

Fruit bats that eat certain cycad seeds, when eaten, can cause a disease that has many symptoms similar to ALS. And they can carry other zoonotic diseases.

The last one is probably close to how cheese was invented.
Traditional rennet, which is used to form the curds in cheese is extracted from the stomach of unweaned calves (and I assume other ruminants).

Also, no balut on the list?

Yeah, I've eaten liver sausage, and it's not much of a leap from there to haggis.

Hessische Landleberwurst ... mmmmm...

The first day I set foot in Malaya (1962 - I was 9 and my father was in the army), I asked for an ice cream at the hotel we were staying at. They brought me durian flavour. I threw up within 10 seconds.

Sweden has surstromming, and even the Swedes will admit that it can be overpowering for them. And there's the fermented shark dish of hakarl from Greenland.

I imagine quite a few actually taste decent.  It's the textures, and cultural food differences that are just horrifying to me.  It's just a matter of meat labeling differences between an sheep's eyeball, guinea pig, chicken leg, and a slab of bacon.

My local grocery store has chicken feet and pig snouts.

I'm from the Midwest and the Asian supermarkets have pig's snouts and feet, chicken feet, duck feet and heads, geoduck, live frogs, and a bunch of other animals and their associated body parts.

No doubt, but what made it notable was it's a ShopRite, not an Asian supermarket.

I am not, and I don't even know anyone or have any relatives that I'm aware of from the Midwest.

It's deffinately a cultural thing. I'm sure some of those things taste delicious.
I was faintly sick when I saw a chef prepare "brain cheese" for the first time. . but it's actually quite good if you don't picture how it was made whilst you eats it.

Century egg is amazing. Serve it with pickled chicken feet for a mother and child reunion to behold.

I've given my mock haggis recipe here before, but just substitute regular lamb mince for the offal and it's quite acceptable.

Salty liquorice is a must try. Must try about 50 times then you might like it. To me it's amazingly delicious.

All the rest are on my bucket list to try.

Came to mention this.  And Mikigaq, fermented whale meat.

They are all over here and lots of Mexican grocery stores and Winco. They also sell tripe and skinned pig heads and calf heads

I've had natto.  My japanese sister in law was very surprised my brother and I liked it.

I spent 17 days or so in japan and I think the only thing I couldn't stomach the whole time was the blow fish eggs...

While visiting a Navajo rez I ate dog stew. I was urged to " Dig deep, find a puppy!"
