Americans Try Bizarre European Food

– And, what? No, I’m not gonna eat this! (man laughs) – [Man] That turned so fast.
– [Woman] No! God, no! (man sighs)
– [Woman] Snails! – Nice – [Voiceover] Escargot is an appetizer of land snails traditionally
prepared in garlic butter. – Look at this little turd of thing. – Ew! – This is like a classic
thing you thought was gross when you were a kid.
– [Woman] I know. (woman screams loudly) – I haven’t had this since I was a baby. – I’ve never had escargot. – We get it. You grew up with money. – This some white folk who
do the fancy stuff out here. – [Plaid-shirted Man] Yea. – No, I’m classless. – This is the first
time I’ve ever had this. – It’s like buttery and
salty just like popcorn. – It’s chewy. It’s garlic-y. – It’s like an aphrodisiac. We might be having sex after this. (Man with Glasses laughs) – Put that whole thing in your mouth. It’s delicious.
– [Black-shirted Woman] No! – I feel like I’m chewing
meat and bubblegum. – I like it. I really like it. – You know you like it. You know you feel fancy as hell. – Are you sad? – Kinda. – Why am I so grossed out by snails? It’s like, I eat clams and mussels which are basically the snails of the sea. – We like, evicted it. – They taste delicious though, but the texture grossed me out. – Evicted it right into our mouths. – [Voiceover] Black pudding is
a type of blood sausage made of congealed pork blood
and oatmeal filler. (Man with Glasses sings)
– [Plaid-shirted Man] Ooh. Ooh. – Cookies! – It’s like you put your hamburgers in the dryer and forgot about it and it shrunk too small. – I think it’s blood sausage. – There’s blood in it? – What? – I know what that means. (laughs) – I hope it’s not like a blood diamond. – Period sex. – Oh. Really? – [Woman] No no no no. No. – [Man] Think About it. It’s like a scab. These are basically just giant pig scabs. – You’re not making it better. – I’m grossed out in theory, but every time I eat it it’s so good. – Blood is delicious. – Oh I need to eat the blood of the pig. I’m a vampire. – Europe is like mostly vampires, right? – Black pudding, ooh it’s like
the darkest of chocolates. Who puts pig’s blood in oatmeal? – [Voiceover] This version
of haggis is served in a puff pastry, but
it’s historically encased in the stomach of a sheep. This inside is a savory pudding with ingredients including
the sheep’s heart, lungs, and liver. – That looks good as hell. – Is this shepherd’s pie? – I’m gonna guess just
upon smell that it’s beef. – Smells weird. – The meat on the inside is, what the (bleep) is it? – Try it. It’s really great. – Oh it tastes like,
it’s like four days old. – It tastes regurgitated to me. – Oh. Ugh. – It’s sheep’s pluck. what the (bleep) is sheep’s pluck? – Oh! – Poor little sheep. – I’m like tastes good, and you’re like it’s a sheep’s heart
and I’m like nevermind. – It doesn’t taste good. – It does taste like liver
and I can’t stand liver. – I actually kind of feel powerful, like I’m eating the
heart of another animal. – It’s served inside the
boiled sheep’s stomach? – So what, like you just don’t
give no (bleep) about sheep? – It’d be like if I took
out all your insides and then grounded up, and then served it on a you platter. – I’ve never thrown out
anything in my life. (laughs) – Poor Scotland. What the (bleep)? – Haggis is hazardous. – [Voiceover] Lutefisk is
a gelatinous dried codfish that has been treated with lye. Lye is a caustic industrial chemical that, aside from curing food, is commonly used in drain de-cloggers, oven cleaners, soap, and for decomposing flesh. – What? – It’s like jello-y. – It’s like soap. – It’s fish. – Like if I didn’t take
a shower for three weeks, this would be the same thing. – This smells like a
straight whale vagina. – So mushy and blobby. – Ugh. – I thought I was cultured,
but this shit’s nasty. – I almost threw up. – Why? – Ew. (woman yells out) I hate how it feels in my mouth. (woman yells out) – What is this? – [Voiceover] That is fish cured with lye. – (simultaneously) What’s lye? – What? – Isn’t lye very toxic? – That’s what you (bleep) put in a perm! – Oh girl, let me put this
in your hair. (laughs) – Lord knows I need it,
no get it, get it, get it. – You have the best medical system in the world, and you eat this? – Yea. – That’s some (bleep). – This is the weirdest texture that’s ever been inside my mouth. – I think the texture is disgusting, – [Man] Alright have some more of that. – But the flavor is fine. – Go on. Eat what you wanna eat. If you serve this to me and I’m at your house I will eat
it, I will have seconds. Even this (bleep). – I once ran a snail over with my car when I was 16. – You ran over a (bleep) snail on purpose? – I was a really angsty teen and I wanted to know what death felt like. Under my tires. Don’t judge. Don’t judge. Everyone’s done it.
