What’s the weirdest souvenir you have ever bought? Arguably one of the most iconic things about traveling is acquiring mementos by which to remember the traveling experience. Some souvenirs are your typical t-shirt, magnet, or statue. However, there are some souvenirs that break the mold of conventionality and offers the traveler a unique keepsake that can be as memorable if not more than the trip itself. From Troll dolls to Kangaroo Scrotum bottle openers (seriously), these are 25 Of The Wackiest Souvenirs From Around The World.
Elephant Dung Coffee
But wait! There’s more! In the beautiful hills of northern Thailand, a herd of twenty elephants is excreting some of the world’s most expensive coffee. Trumpeted as earthy in flavor and smooth on the palate, the exotic new brew is made from beans eaten by Thai elephants and plucked a day later from their dung. Such an exquisite souvenir.
Elephant Dung Beer
And you thought we were done with elephants…we’re not. Straight from Japan (shocker) Japanese brewery Sankt Gallen has gifted the world with Un, Kono Kuro, an expensive (and surprisingly popular) brew made from coffee beans that have passed through an elephant. Yes, just like the ones we just talked about. OK, now we’re done with elephants…moving on.
Deep Sea Water
MaHaLo Hawaii Deep Sea drinking water comes to you from the island paradise of Hawaii; three thousand feet below the ocean surface, where the water is naturally clean, pure, cold, and filled with healthy minerals and nutrients. They say it has magical effects on the human body.
These sugar-free lollipops, which you can find all over Arizona, feature a 100% real scorpion. Don’t worry though; it won’t bite back.
If a scorpion-featuring lollipop is not thrilling enough for you, visit Thailand and try this “delicious” chocolate candy that includes oven-roasted scorpions covered in delicious dark chocolate. Mmmmm, no thanks!
