Desserts are not limited to the diminutive sweets that are served on a plate. You've probably never given much thought to the possibility that someone could cook chicken with sugar, cricketers with chocolate, or pancakes with blood.
These dishes do exist, and surprisingly, there are people who find pleasure in eating them. This is not a joke.
The following is a list of the nine most unusual sweets in the world.
1. Cendol, Malaysia

One of the most attractive foods on the dinner table is pastry. It seems that it does not when prepared by traditional Malaysian chefs. Cendol, a local concoction of jelly noodles, shaved ice, green food coloring, and red beans, is what appears to be a swarm of green, quivering worms. You'll need to have the courage to try a mouthful even though the combination seems to be deceptively delicious.
2. Tavuk Gogsu, Turkey

A common milk pudding in Turkish cuisine is tavuk gogsu. Tavuk gösü is a rich, sweet pudding that is similar to rice pudding in flavor. It is made from rice flour, sweetened milk, cinnamon, and chicken and is cooked in a copper pot.
Instead of chicken bones, fresh chicken breast is boiled, softened, and separated into thin fibers, giving the dish a creamy, slightly chewy texture. So don't expect to be munching on chicken bones.
3. Cherpumple, Los Angeles

The turducken, which is a chicken stuffed inside a duck, then a turkey, and baked together to dress up Thanksgiving dinner, was introduced first. Then, in 2009, it gave Los Angeles-based comedian Charles Phoenix the idea for the cherpumple, a pie consisting of three traditional American pies (apple, cherry, and pumpkin), each of which is sandwiched between layers of cream cheese frosting.
An impressive-looking tower of baked goodness is created by baking the pies inside a sizable spice cake. Later on, Philadelphia's Flying Monkey bakery gained notoriety for its own stuffed dessert, the Pumpple Cake, which has 1,800 calories per slice and layers apple and pumpkin pie with buttercream frosting.
4. Bread and butter pudding, England
British housewives have long mastered the art of transforming pantry essentials into delectable, filling desserts. They are never ones to let a bit of stale bread go to waste. Let's talk about the bread and butter pudding, a dish that has been around since the 18th century and is still available on pub menus today.
The pudding is made with layers of bread and butter, baked with raisins, nutmeg, eggs, and milk, and topped with vanilla and spices. It can be eaten on its own or with generous helpings of custard. Today's gastro-pub versions incorporate ingredients like fruit, marmalade, chocolate, or even a little beer. Never has bread and butter tasted so good!

5. Ais Kacang, Malaysia and Singapore

Ais Kacang is another Asian pudding that resembles a paintball battle that took place in the kitchen. It is a true mash-up of ingredients.
Shaved ice, sweet corn, grass jelly, lychee fruit, and evaporated milk are combined with red beans before being drizzled with sweet strawberry syrup. This dessert is ideal for anyone looking to make a statement because it is extremely sweet and garish.
6. Mákos Tészta (Poppy seed noodles), Hungary

Pasta is something that, for the vast majority of people, just comes naturally as a part of salty dishes; however, it appears that Hungarians do not agree with this assumption.
They don't top their pasta with tomato sauce and cheese like most restaurants do; instead, they mix poppy seeds and sugar together and pour that mixture over the noodles. It is a common dish that is frequently cooked in cafeterias as well as private homes.
7. Deep-fried mars bar, Scotland
This calorie-dense dessert, which is still frequently found on chip shop menus today, is a chilled Mars bar (caramel and nougat covered in chocolate), coated in batter, and dipped into a deep fat fryer. For maximum gooeyness, it is best served with ice cream.
This novelty item, which was reportedly found in 1995 during a playful experiment at the Haven Chip Bar in Stonehaven, quickly became well-known thanks to press coverage in the neighborhood paper. The ubiquitous Crème Egg and Snickers bars joined the deep-frying trend after the deep-fried mars bar quickly gained popularity. A deep-fried bounty bar even appeared in one of Nigella Lawson's cookbooks. Delicious but sickly.

8. Green Dysentery, Taipei
At the cringe-inducing Modern Toilet restaurant in Taipei, your meal is served in bowls shaped like toilets, and the restaurant's desserts, which look like droppings, are especially on theme. If you have the stomach for it, try the "green dysentery," which is a shaved ice-based dessert topped with kiwi fruit sauce, or a bloody-looking version colored red from strawberries. The ingredients aren't as strange as the names, which go for the shock factor.
9. Almond tofu dessert, China
Even non-vegetarians, who have long derided tofu as a poor substitute for a hearty steak, might be tempted to reconsider after tasting this dish.
In China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore, almond tofu—also known as almond jelly or almond pudding—is a beloved dessert that is frequently offered on restaurant menus and can even be purchased as an instant powder mix. Contrary to popular belief, the Chinese Almond is actually an apricot kernel, and the sweet, gelatinous dessert is flavord with almond milk. It's a far cry from the bland, jelly-like cubes floating in your miso soup and is a smooth, creamy whip with a sweet flavor.
Above are 9 strangest desserts in the world that you should try once in your life. Although they are unusual desserts, they are not as scary and difficult to eat as tourist sites often warn.
If you come to the above countries, do not forget to enjoy the above desserts after having your main meal.
