From giant ants to raw meat to sürstromming (fermented fish), countries from around the world all have their remarkable dishes.
What country are you from? What's the weirdest food you have there

People took to Twitter to share their most unconventional food combos, and what they had to say was certainly interesting.
Australia! weirdest is probably a bunnings snag, not because there is something weird about how the hotdog is made or tatses, but simply the fact its expected of you to buy a hotdog whenever you visit a hardware store

Is the hot dog part of the transaction? Do you use it to hammer in a nail?
Germany & the weirdest food for foreigners probably is Mett.. it's just raw meat and we mostly eat it on bread.

Raw meat on bread, or mett, is spiced raw ground pork. The name originates from mett, which means “chopped pork without bacon.”
I'm from Brazil! The weirdest one is a cornmeal with a type of giant ant (my grandma used to make me eat some in christmas). The other ones are a mayonnaise with apple and peas, and a pasta that has fish, tomatoes and eggs. All of them taste really… weird,,,

Giant ants sound like something out of a nightmare, but perhaps they’re less terrifying disguised beneath lots of other food.
in sweden we have surströmming (fermented fish), its not as bad as people think it is as long as you know what to do with it. we also have (one of my favorite foods) blood pudding which is exactly what it sounds like

Sürstromming is known for its egregious smell to people who have minimal experience with fermented fish. All these foods might sound foreign to some people, but to others, they’re just another ordinary part of their diet.
