EXTREME EATING – From a small seed a funky smell may grow…


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.


'Yummy' 'worm'

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’.
