Top 10 Most Unappetizing Food Names

The Top Ten

S**t On A Shingle

It looks gross too.

Thank goodness for the pic. My mental image of this was...worse. - Entranced98

(aka S.O.S.)
It's chipped beef in milk gravy and it's a traditional meal in the US Armed Forces, but it's also served in many diners and restaurants in the US as a breakfast item (on toast, bagels, English muffins, biscuits, home fries, rice, and in casseroles).
But usually the name S**t On A Shingle is used for Creamed chipped beef on toast (on the image) - Metal_Treasure

A** Milk

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

Spotted Dick

Heinz have a product called "Microwaveable Spotted Dick / Sponge Pudding (NEW recipe)" - Metal_Treasure

Grandpa? - Cyri


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. - Martin_Canine

Good point. Though in English, it sounds a bit like a visit to the loo! - Entranced98

It's a Swedish candy bar - Metal_Treasure

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! " - Metal_Treasure

Penis Fish

Those look gross.

(aka spoon worm or fat innkeeper worm).
It's popular in Korea and China - in Korea it's eaten raw, in China it's usually stir-fried. - Metal_Treasure

Barfy Burger

You get to eat it twice. - Cyri

Now that's recycling. - Entranced98

Creamy White Finishing Sauce

It's just an innocent sauce... and not what all dirty minded people thought. - Metal_Treasure

Yum? - Cyri

Camel Balls (Bubble Gum)

Thanks to whoever added it!
"Bubble Gum, Camel Balls, Extra Sour, Liquid Filled" - Metal_Treasure

Microwaveable Spotted Dick

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

The Contenders

Bum Bum Cake

Tasty, but unnappentizing name. XC - BorisRule

"Ant cake"
But it's just a cake with chocolate crumbles, someone probably thought it looks like ants. - Martin_Canine

Stinkhorn Mushroom

The picture is even less appetising. - Entranced98

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


Wouldn't I call "Fleischbrot" if it's grinded finely like a bread flower? - BorisRule

"Liver cheese"

In its basic form it contains neither liver nor cheese, but is made from pork and beef which is grinded extremely finely and then baked. In between buns, it's one of the most popular (fast) foods in Austria, and one that is deeply connected to the country's image. Some variants have actual 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. - Martin_Canine

Ants on a Log

LOL, do I wanna eat ants? - Metal_Treasure


Gimme a bowl of mueslix! - THC13

A** Cheese

It's smoked donkey cheese (it's a luxury food product by the way) - Metal_Treasure


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

Bull Testicles

That is disgusting.

Cream Collon
Fish Ball

"Purulent one"

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