What cheese is known for having live maggots inside of it?
Answer: Cheese covered in live maggots sounds pretty disgusting, right? Well, to some it’s a delicacy called Casu Marzu. Casu Marzu, often called the world’s most dangerous cheese, is an illegal cheese found in Sardinia, Italy, made from sheep’s milk and infested with live maggots. The cheese is typically eaten when the maggots are still alive, as dead maggots are a sign that it has gone bad. Casu Marzu has been a part of Sardinian culture for generations and is often consumed at weddings and celebratory gatherings.
Casu marzu, literally ‘rotten/putrid cheese’, is a traditional Sardinian sheep milk cheese that contains live insect larvae. A similar cheese, casgiu merzu, is found in Corsica. Wikipedia
