It's like we have our very own Fear Factor on KROC! On April Fools, Food & Wine posted on Facebook the most disgusting creation possible - a hot dog water slushie. I wish I was kidding. It had people dry heaving, gagging, you name it. Watching the instructional video below gives you too many closeups and too many details on how to make it.

Which inspired this post. What is the grossest food or drink you've ever consumed or seen someone consume? I gotta admit, I am a little adventurous but there are some things I have tried that I just won't eat again. While we're on the topic of hot dogs, I am not a fan of sauerkraut. Won't touch the stuff.

Whelp. Are you ready to get grossed out? Here's the top responses for gross consumed food or drink that people shared:

    The Sweat Sock

    The sweat sock! It's where you take the bar rag and clean up all the spilled booze on the bar and drain it into a shot glass. It is in the black bartender bible book.

    This is really a thing. I really tried it in Iceland. It is vile. Makes Lutefisk look like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

    A national dish of Iceland consisting of a Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus) or other sleeper shark that has been cured with a particular fermentation process and hung to dry for four to five months. Kæstur hákarl has a strong ammonia-rich smell and fishy taste.[1]

    Can of Alpo

    Jeff A.

    I ate a can of Alpo dog food on a bet, it was NASTY!! I got nearly to the bottom and stuck my fork into a little inch long chunk of intestine and could not finish it... The guys felt it was a solid effort and gave me the $2 anyway.

    It's icky.

    Cathie A. added:

    Okay - Claire wins. I've heard that's some nasty stuff!!!

    It is made from aged stockfish (air-dried whitefish) or dried/salted whitefish (klippfisk) and lye (lut). It is gelatinous in texture. Its name literally means "lye fish".

    Tobacco spit

    Katie C.

    I have an old Navy buddy, while on deployment, had like five guys spit chewing tobacco spit into one cup and he drank it for money. There is a video that I still can not finish without gagging.
