Ever want to eat a human but were too afraid of the negative repercussions? Well, you may (or may not) have your chance with...HUFU!
Mark Nuckols, CEO of HUFU, states that it's a healthy alternative to human flesh. Now, there's been a lot of talk about whether or not HUFU is a real product, will ever be made, has already been made, or even actually tastes like human (let's be honest, if you know what human tastes like, you're not about to blab it to everyone you know.) Here's the Wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hufu
Personally, I've always had a morbid fascination with things like this. Cannibals, serial killers, cults, conspiracies, they've all caught my imagination because of how outlandish or truly frightning they can be. And while I have my own food phobias (I can't eat food that squeaks on my teeth or anything slimey...don't ask) I've actually been quite curious about trying this HUFU stuff if it actually comes to pass. I mean, what do I taste like? Chicken? Pork? Skittles? Oh wait, couldn't be Skittles, I'm not sweet enough... Bah, whatever, I still want to know what it tastes like!
There, I said it, I want to eat a fake human. *insert evil laugh here*
It's a strange product to be sure, but stranger things have been made that took off so who knows? With something as strange as HUFU and with so many starts and stops, we may never know what Long Pork really tastes like unless we happen to indulge in a little illegal activity, which is NOT recommended.
But wait, there's more! Apparently a trend is cropping up in Japan for Cannibal Banquets where you and your party is served a human body made entirely of food and it even 'bleeds' when you cut into it. Not sure how true this is either, but awesome nonetheless. Thank you Japan yet again for your wacky ideas!
Until next time my little cannibal wannabes!
