The Disgusting Food Museum


Fair shake of the sauce bottle, cobber. It’s a bit unfair to put Vegemite on the same plane as sheep’s eyeball juice and fruit bats or roasted guinea pigs. Gert can vouch for the healing properties of Vegemite and toast when you’ve had too much to drink the night before.  And how did the harmless musk stick, comfort of many a boring afternoon in school, get into the exhibition of disgusting foods? It may be sickly sweet but when you put it in your mouth and twirl it round with both hands you can sharpen it to a point and stick it into your classmate. Try that with a roasted guinea pig.

Oh, those supercilious Swedes. The Disgusting Food Museum in Malmö will be open from Wednesday to Sunday between October 31 and January 27, 2019. (Doesn’t Knausgaard live in Malmö? I seem to remember his cuisine wasn’t great.)

  1. This reminds me of those terrible challenges on I’m a Celebrity, Get me out of Here where they have to eat the most disgusting things imaginable. *shudders visibly*

  2. I remember the son of one of my friends hated marmite.
    If you go to one of the side streets just off Wangfujing Street, Beijing, you will find a lot of street food vendors that would have things that would make your hair curl. There were bugs on a skewer – spiders, ants all sorts of unmentionables.
