Top 10 Most Unappetizing Food Names

The Top Ten

1 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

2 A** Milk

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

3 Spotted Dick

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

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. - 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

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! " - Metal_Treasure

6 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

7 Barfy Burger

Now that's recycling. - Entranced98

8 Creamy White Finishing Sauce

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

9 Microwaveable Spotted Dick

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

10 Camel Balls (Bubble Gum)

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

The Newcomers

? Mueslix

Gimme a bowl of mueslix! - THC13

The Contenders

11 Bum Bum Cake
12 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

13 Ameisenkuchen

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

14 Ants on a Log

LOL, do I wanna eat ants? - Metal_Treasure

15 Shiitake
16 A** Cheese

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

17 Shito

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

18 D'Asses
19 Bull Testicles

That is disgusting.

20 Cream Collon
21 Fish Ball
22 Eitrige

"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

23 Leberkäse

"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
