Brazilians from the nation’s central states add one particularly dangerous, polarizing ingredient to chicken and rice. While filming in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, Anthony Bourdain once described the pequi fruit as “loved and hated in equal measure, described by both camps as tasting sweaty, or like a barnyard.” But it’s not pequi’s unique flavors that have earned the fruit its fearsome reputation. That honor goes to the tiny spikes surrounding its pit, which lodge themselves into the mouths of foolhardy diners who bite into the seemingly innocuous fruit with abandon.
