Our eyes may often be bigger than our stomachs, but that doesn't mean that what we see will always make us want to take a big bite.

In the world of food, there are many items that make you wonder how anyone was ever compelled to eat them in the first place. Mushrooms might be the best example — this fungus that grows out of the ground is no more appealing than a gathering of moss. Actually, given that fresh green colour, moss might win when it comes to aesthetics.

Or even pineapple, with that terrifying looking exterior. We know, we know, evolution built it that way to hide the sweet fruit inside, but getting into it must have been a true case of culinary blindness.

In the video above, we take a look at some of our very favourite foods to eat that are completely hideous to contemplate. Have a few of your own? Let us know in the comments below.
