National Eat What You Want Day

With it being National Eat What You Want Day we thought we’d ask some of the team what the weirdest food they’ve ever tried is, and there are some treats in here! Ranging from Norwegian fermented fish to soup made from brains, read on to find out more…

Starting off relatively normal – well as normal as ghost chillis can get – we’ve got our Creative Director Geoff.

Geoff once tried a phaal made with ghost chilli peppers just to experience what it was like… Needless to say, it remained largely uneaten and he couldn’t taste anything for days afterwards!

That’ll teach you Geoff!

We then move on to our Account Director Anne, who once took some advice from a friend on how to get extra protein into her diet…

Whilst training and keeping fit, one of Anne’s friends told her that eating roasted crickets would help to increase her protein intake. A quick Google tells me that they’re actually 60% protein by volume – not bad! Although whatever happened to just having a nice strawberry protein shake?

Whilst in San Francisco, our Operations Manager Iain visited a restaurant called Johnny Garlics…

What did he try? Alligator Jambalaya! This is an actual picture of the meal from his visit and I mean, it doesn’t look too bad to me?!

Still need to find out what it actually tasted like…

So probably the next strangest item would be mine – Shane, Digital Account Manager.

Whilst travelling around Thailand I was constantly told/asked/forced to try random foods – such as scorpion. At first I resisted, but after (quite a few) Singha’s I gave it a go and it wasn’t too bad from what I remember – but quite crunchy!

Ok now it starts to get a little strange…

Chris, our Senior Creative told me that he’d tried sheep brain soup whilst he was in Turkey. Not sure what was more weird, that he even tried it, or that he told me it was actually really nice?

Finally, we’ve got our Managing Director James, who told me all about Rakfisk…

Now, if like me you know nothing about Rakfisk, it is basically a rotten fish which has been salted and  stored in the ground for between 2-3 months (or sometimes even up to a year) before being eaten without being cooked?!

He also added that if they do it wrong, it can kill you! Think i’ll give that one a miss if it gets brought into the office when we’re all back…
