Current GOAL


Hello, I am "Chocolate Cheeseburger" the Travel-Bug. I travel from Geocache to Geocache collecting funny stories about the strange things people eat. Share your culinary tales of deliciously questionable taste, and read the yummy stories left by others. Photographs are always welcome! I especially like to travel to places with unusual food; however, all travel is welcome and no cache is too exotic or mundane. Thanks, and Bon-Appétit...



CHOKOSNAKKU...

About This Item

I recently happened across a box of Asian chocolates that looked like tiny cheeseburgers (and tasted, well... Asian) and I simply had to have them. The price of the box was worth it if only for the random-factor alone! This silly purchase reminded me of some of the odd, unusual & occasionally disgusting food items I encountered while living in southeast Asia:

  • Pocari Sweat - The sweat of a Pocari, bottled and chilled. Mercifully, Pocari is simply a tropical fruit.


  • Century Eggs - Small (non-chicken) eggs boiled for days in blackened green tea. Covered with a coating of lime, ash and sea-salt, the eggs are often buried in shallow holes for up to 100 days prior to boiling.


  • Durian - Seriously, this is a fruit?!? Stink-O!


  • Beetle Nut - An addictive, hallucinogenic palm-nut which causes the chewer to drool a viscous, red goop.


  • Bee Larvae - Soaked in liqueur, the Taiwanese version of 'the worm'. Cheers!


  • Pig Face - Boiled. Gross. Occasionally left outside of Buddhist temples as an offering.


  • Snake Alley - Not a food, a place. Specifically a night market in Taipei where you can get a disturbingly fresh shot of snake's blood.

It gets worse...

How many of these things did I actually ingest? Perhaps I shouldn't say... But I have recently had some good, spicy fried locusts and sweet Manchurian ants at Typhoon, a top notch restaurant in Santa Monica, California. Yummy! Oh, and if you are ever in Cuzco, Peru be sure to enjoy some Mate-de-Coca tea. Just don't try to bring it back to the U.S. unless you want to go to jail.

(Yikes!)

Anyway, after finishing the last of these odd-yet-tasty little cheeseburgers I decided to send this Travel-Bug into the world to collect other people's stories about fun, interesting and unusual foods...

So, what is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

Sorry! Another cache too small, and fat ponies probably not too good to eat.

Just when we thought a log about duck flavoured ice cream might be appropriate....
No duck or ice cream today, and the cache was too small for lodging.

  • Jack has the cache The cache is on the antlers of the Jackalope.
