Frightening Foods

By Stett Holbrook


IT BEING Halloween and all, here's a list of five scary foods.

Bagged Spinach Boo!

Cheez Whiz If the Day-Glo color weren't haunting enough, the book-length list of ingredients ought to scare you away.

Haggis The word is scary but when you learn that this Scottish delicacy is a sheep's stomach filled with oatmeal and spices, it really gives you chills. I've heard it's not bad though.

Headcheese A great name for a frightful mix of pig lips and snouts.

Stinky Tofu Hell hath no stank like a rank plank of this Taiwanese delicacy.
