The museum’s exhibit include a bull’s penis, frog smoothies from Peru, a wine made of baby mice that is consumed in China and Korea.
American foods on display include Jell-O salad, made of gelatin and typically fruit; canned pork brains with milk gravy; and root beer, a sweet soft drink which Swedes say tastes like toothpaste.
Exhibited delicacies also include:
Surströmming – fermented herring from Sweden
Cuy – roasted guinea pigs from Peru
Casu marzu – maggot-infested cheese from Sardinia
Stinky tofu – pungent bean curd from China
Hákarl – well-aged shark from Iceland
Durian – infamously stinky fruit from Thailand
