    Default Oh, yum.

    Quoting from:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu

    Casu marzu is considered toxic when the maggots in the cheese
    have died. Because of this, only cheese in which the maggots
    are still alive is eaten. When the cheese has fermented enough,
    it is cut into thin strips and spread on moistened Sardinian
    flatbread (pane carasau), to be served with a strong red wine.
    Casu marzu is believed to be an aphrodisiac by local Sardinians.
    Because the larvae in the cheese can launch themselves for
    distances up to 15 centimetres (6 in) when disturbed, diners
    hold their hands above the sandwich to prevent the maggots from
    leaping into their eyes. Those who do not wish to eat live
    maggots place the cheese in a sealed paper bag. The maggots,
    starved for oxygen, writhe and jump in the bag, creating a
    "pitter-patter" sound. When the sounds subside, the maggots
    are dead and the cheese can be eaten.

    Stick to dust mite cheese. Less toxic.
