Most difficult food to Make

We’ve all been there — staring down a big, steaming plate of snow crab legs or lobster, or any one of a number of delicious-looking foods, ready to dig in… but with absolutely no idea where to start, or how to get at the actual edible part of it.

It’s a problem that’s plagued us since the dawn of man, and the reason why items like nutcrackers were invented.

There are some food items that are simply hard to eat. Some foods, like ice cream cones, don’t require any special equipment to get to the good stuff, but you’d be hard-pressed to finish a whole cone without at least some very sticky fingers. Other foods, like shell-on nuts, are all but impossible to get into without a specially designed contraption. And then there are the foods that are absolutely the most frustrating: difficult to access without special equipment, yet so delicious that each little morsel makes it well worth the sheen of sweat forming on your brow.

But sometimes that’s exactly what we’re looking for. Those times when the struggle is for a worthy cause, because the end result is a glorious bite of food. Sure, a simple steak is delicious, but all things being equal, would you rather eat that or a 4-pound lobster?

We’ve assembled a list of the 15 foods that are the most difficult to eat. But we also considered something else: that noble struggle has to be worth it. Yes, durian is one of the most difficult fruits to open without the help of a machete, but let’s just say that it’s an acquired taste. And while we were at it, we made sure to include some helpful tips as to how to conquer the challenges ahead.

Wings
Wings are one of the few items on our list that can be eaten with bare hands, with no help from any special contraptions, but they can still be a bit daunting. Sure, for some, wings are one of the easiest foods to eat: just grab hold of one, start gnawing, and don’t stop until all that’s left are bones and a sauce-covered face and hands. But for those of us who choose to be a bit daintier in our eating habits, those bony, messy, spicy, fatty bar snacks can be a culinary obstacle course. There’s really no right or wrong way to eat a wing, though. Eat enough, and you’ll develop your own technique.

Sushi
It’s just a slab of rice with a slice of fish on it, so it's no big deal, right? But ask anyone who’s eaten sushi (and not the rolled-up maki) just a couple of times in their life if it was a piece-of-cake experience, and they’ll probably give you a few reasons as to why it wasn’t. First, the whole raw fish thing can take some getting used to; second, it’s a balancing act if you want to add toppings like ginger and wasabi (not too much!); third, it takes some skill to dip it in soy sauce without having the rice fall apart; and fourth, it’s too big for one bite but too small for two! Our advice? Don’t even bother with ginger, wasabi, or chopsticks. Just pick it up, dunk it fish side down into a little soy sauce, and pop the whole thing in your mouth.

What was the most difficult food for humans to digest?

I don't know if its the MOST difficult but, sweetcorn has to be up there. I've done a lot of work down the sewers and the amount of sweetcorn that is down there is unbelievable.
