Casu Marzu

A traditional Sardinian delicacy, casu marzu is pecorino cheese that has been intentionally infested with live cheese fly larvae. The cheese itself is soft, having been partially decomposed by the larvae. It is readily available on the black market in Sardinia, where it is considered an aphrodisiac and served with red wine. Some choose to cover casu marzu with one hand while eating it, as the larvae can leap up to 6 in (15 cm). Resistant to human stomach acids, the larvae can do what when eaten? More...

I love cheese and it's even better with a little wine but, in the words of Robin (of Batman fame),
leaping larvae! I don't want to hear any more.

I don't think I could eat it--even with wine and crackers.

There aren't enough casks of wine on this planet to get me to even consider consuming rotten cheese with maggots wriggling in it.

What the heck is wrong with people?!

Hey, give me enough wine and I'll eat anything. I'd be worried about the maggots eating my crackers, though.
