What you see isn't always what you get

So today, we'll take a look at foods that have one name and are something else entirely. I'll warn you that you may not have much of an appetite after reading this, so you might want to make it a special occasion.

First off, Rocky Mountain Oysters. Now, if you know anything about the Rocky Mountains, you know that it is completely landlocked part of the country. So, how do you suppose this area of the country has oysters? Well, I'll give you a hint: it utilizes a rather abundant source of food already here.

Rocky Mountain Oysters are actually bull testicles. Yes, you heard right: testicles. They are deep-fried and usually not recognizable as anything other than some chewy meat.

Along similar lines, we have something called Lamb Fries. They are, as you might guess, lamb testicles. Another food like that is called Duck White Kidneys, which are duck testicles.

Ants on a log? Raisins with peanut butter and celery.

Any other fun foods you can think of? Have I put you off your appetite completely? Hehe, good.
