World's Strangest Aphrodisiacs
The Philippines and Southeast Asia
In the Philippines, this sidewalk snack—a duck egg that contains a fetus about 20 days into gestation—is as common as a New York pretzel. Served by vendors who belt out their fetal wares with the chant “baluuuut,” it is considered a delicacy in many countries. The egg is typically tapped, then flipped upside down. The liquid is drunk and then the egg is peeled to reveal part of a duck fetus imbedded in the white, accented by the odd feather.
Where to Find It: All over major city centers of the Philippines as well as in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
Cost: As little as $1 each.
