Have you ever had the worst taste test of your life?
They say that when you first open a can of Surströmming is one of the worst smells in the world. Surströmming is fermented Baltic Sea herring and is a very important part of traditional northern Swedish cuisine since the 16th century. While Swedish people think of it like a delicacy, the rest of the world, well, not so much. No matter what name we call it, it’s still a can of rotten fish. Maybe it tastes good, but it smells enough to be banned by airlines as an offensive weapon.
All the facts about this food weren’t enough for BuzzFeed crew to leave it alone and they decided to taste it to see what all the hassle is about.
Their reactions are well worth watching.
