If you're looking for boring or bland, you've come to the wrong place. Grab a habanero and test your taste bud tolerance with our adventures in eating quiz!
That's true. The blind or visually impaired can navigate the tables at a restaurant whether the room is lit or not. It's like one restaurant owner said, "This has been considered a disability, now it's their ability."
You'll never look at leafy greens the same way again. According to the list, this unassuming crop caused 363 outbreaks involving 13,568 reported cases of illness in 2009 -- in some cases because of E. coli and Salmonella.
Better find a chef who knows what they're doing! Fugu is considered a delicacy in Japan, but it could be your last meal if a deadly neurotoxin found in liver, gonads, intestine and skin contaminates the rest of the fish.
The poison initially causes a tingling in the lips and tongue, but can eventually cause: excessive salivation, weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscle twitching, difficulty swallowing, voice loss, convulsions and possible death resulting from respiratory paralysis. Yikes!
At 60 percent, the odds are not in your favor. You can thank the poison known as tetrodotoxin.
The spicy heat of various chilis is rated using the Scoville Scale. A bell pepper measures zero on the scale, while habaneros measure in around 577,000. Of course, these numbers won't really matter when your eyes are watering and your mouth is on fire.
While the habanero and the Dominican devil's tongue (also known as the red savina) have quite the kick, the Trinidad moruga scorpion currently holds the title of the world's hottest pepper, measuring an intense 1.2 million Scoville heat units. Eat one and you'll need a lot of milk to soothe that burning sensation.
Native to West Africa, the red berries known as miracle fruit will make sour foods like lemons taste like candy. Just don't eat too many or you'll have some tender mouth ulcers and an unhappy digestive system to deal with the next morning.
It's a miracle! Or, rather, miraculin, which is a pretty amazing little protein.
Yep, miracle fruit alters the tastes of many foods to make them seem sweet. It can also make vinegar taste like apple juice and goat cheese taste like cheesecake.
Okay, so you wouldn't have to take out a loan, but at $2.00 per berry they aren't for the bargain shopper.
The lunch counter at Carlsbad Caverns is still there, but now it's more like a gift shop and snack bar than a full-blown restaurant. Too bad for adventure eaters, but good for the cave.
The Burj Khalifa building, measuring an unbelievable 2,716.5 feet (828 m) high, is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The restaurant, At.mosphere, is on the 122nd floor.
Four hundred fifty feet. The chopped quail egg with truffle caviar finger sandwich, mini chicken-and-mushroom quiche, and scones with strawberry jam and lemon curd are pretty good, as long as the height doesn't make you sick.
The Wieliczka salt mine has operated continuously since the Middle Ages and is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But don't worry, the food is fresh!
The answer is Dinner in White, but don't worry, there are colored foods. The phrase actually describes a flash mob picnic involving hundreds or even thousands of participants.
It began in 1988, when Francois Pasquier returned home to Paris after a few years abroad and decided to reconnect with some old friends. They met at the Paris park Bois de Boulogne and wore white so they could find each other.
A short, one-hour notice helps make the events more spontaneous.
Of course not! If you learn anything from this quiz, it should be that. Now go out and find yourself a dark restaurant or a flavor tripping party, and have fun!
