Apparently the Dane Bloodbeard over on Chaos Dwarfs Online has tasted one of the top contenders for the smelliest food in the world, surströmming (straight translation: "sour herring").
He claims to have survived the event.

Considered by some to be nothing short of a chemical weapon, by others a traditional delicatess best eaten with complimentary stuff on a sandwich, it was recently tested by Americans.
Curious? Got guts enough to try it? Then see for yourself!
