Lately, it’s become fashionable in some circles to brag of one’s fearless consumption of bugs, grubs, and pretty much anything else that can be scraped off of a forest floor. And if your circle happens to be in New Zealand, you will soon have the option of chasing it all down with a shot of horse semen.
In a move sure to appeal to the select segment of the population who count themselves as fans of Equus, Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern, and Beavis and Butt-Head, the annual Wildfoods Festival in the South Island town of Hokitika will be serving equine ejaculate alongside more traditional menu items like raw scorpions and deep-fried grubs.
The shots are the brainchild of an area racehorse breeder, who is working on a selection of flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. He promises, just like that bad boyfriend you used to have, that the product will taste just like a milkshake.
