A growing number of Brits are sporting the latest ‘fashion’; the Polynesian style tattoo. Fair enough I suppose: in boring old Britain, you get the standard, dull as dishwater packet of crisps – in Samoa however, you get the much more attractive and exotic dish of worm sperm and egg packets on toast.
Of course, the worm sperm and egg packet combo goes by a different, slightly less matter of fact name in Samoa. Called Palolo, it’s a ‘strange green worm’ that rises from the sea annually each year around October that’s collected by the bucketful. It’s considered quite a delicacy in Samoa, and as this rather helpful National Geographic article describes, tastes kinda ‘scratchy’.
