Beetle larva chocolates
Mmm. Nothing says "Yum!" quite like the sight of a sweet confection in the shape of a beetle larva. Despite its unappetizing appearance (unless you're Timon or Pumbaa), the candy is actually made from milk and white chocolate, cornflakes, orange peel, and . . . well, we're back to unappetizing with this one . . . dried squid.
Anyone with a Japanese address and a questionable sweet tooth can order these chocolates online for about $2 apiece, or head over to the Chocolate and Sweets Expo in Tokyo (going on now until March 9th) in hopes of snagging a sample.
