Top 10 Most Unappetizing Food Names

The Top Ten
1 S**t On A Shingle
2 A** Milk

It's just donkey milk, but oh man, its name...

3 Spotted Dick
4 Plopp

What is so unappetizing about "Plopp"? At least in German, this is a sound effect, similar to the English "pop" for something popping. It's also used as a slogan for "Nimm 2 Soft" gums, because they pop when you start to chew them. Maybe it means the same in Swedish.

5 Paula Deen Butt Massage

It's a seasoning from her collection, Special Seasonings. Chef Paula Deen about the product: "Y'all, rub this wonderful blend of spices on any pork butt (even beef brisket) and watch everyone's eyes roll back in their heads over the flavor!"

6 Penis Fish
7 Barfy Burger
8 Creamy White Finishing Sauce
9 Camel Balls (Bubble Gum)
10 Microwaveable Spotted Dick

As if Spotted Dick wasn't enough... we also got a microwaveable version.

The Contenders
11 Bum Bum Cake
12 Ameisenkuchen

"Ant cake" is just a cake with chocolate crumbles. Someone probably thought it looks like ants.

13 Stinkhorn Mushroom

Yeah, it's stinky! Stinkhorns are edible (basket stinkhorn is preferred) but only in the egg stage because they are odorless. Stinkhorn 'eggs' are considered a delicacy in parts of China and Europe. They're pickled raw and sometimes sold under the name 'devil's eggs'.

The picture is even less appetizing.

14 Leberkäse

"Liver cheese" doesn't contain liver or cheese. In its basic form, it's made from pork and beef that are ground extremely finely and then baked. It's one of the most popular (fast) foods in Austria, deeply connected to the country's image, and served between buns. Some variants do have melted cheese inside.

However, none contain liver. I think liver and other organs are disgusting on my plate, and I wouldn't want to imagine what a literal liver cheese would be.

Wouldn't it be called "Fleischbrot" if it's ground finely like bread flour?

15 Ants on a Log
16 Shiitake
17 Mueslix
18 Nasi Goreng
19 A** Cheese
20 Shito

It's a hot black pepper sauce that originated in Ghana. There are versions with cayenne pepper and other ingredients.

21 D'Asses
22 Bull Testicles
23 Cream Collon
24 Fish Ball
25 Eitrige

"Purulent one" is a sausage filled with melted cheese. In neutral German, it's called a Käsekrainer ("Cheese krainer", "krainer" being a variety of sausage). However, in Viennese dialect, it has this disgusting name. It's not only a very popular dish, but it's also delicious. Unfortunately, in combination with this local name, you can't get the image out of your head that the yellow cream inside isn't cheese, although it is.
