Eggs Soaked in the Pee of Virgin Boys is a Real Chinese Delicacy

Urine Soaked Eggs

In some parts of the world, insects like crickets and roaches are served up as delicacies. In others, they’re simply regarded (or disregarded) as pests. But did you know that some people, the Chinese in particular, find eggs that have been soaked in the urine of virgin boys appetizing? It’s so good that it’s even considered a delicacy.

It sounds bizarre, but I kid you not. Called ‘virgin boy eggs’, these treats have been served for the last twenty or so years. The locals believe that it gives them some sort of health boost, claiming that it decreases body heats, promotes better circulation, and invigorates the body. The doctors, however, find it unsanitary for obvious reasons.

If you’re curious, the taste of these eggs are described as ‘fresh’ and ‘salty.’ The salty part, I get, but fresh? How can they taste fresh after being boiled for hours in urine? To each their own, I suppose.

    Bear Grill approves of this snack. Seriously, I live in Hong Kong and travels to (Mainland) China quiet a bit and have seen seriously weird stuff… but this is extreme. I would not be surprised it exists but at the same time it looks like a cheap attempt from journalist to fill in some blanks with different clips from China. Either way… I will avoid eggs in the mainland in the future :0)
