Skip to comments.Urine-soaked eggs a treat in China

The snack is called virgin boy eggs and the key ingredient in them is boys urine, which is collected from primary school toilets, according to Reuters. Vendors prefer that the urine comes from kids below the age of 10.
There really is no explanation as to why the key ingredient has to be boys urine. It has been that way for centuries though.
According to the New York Daily News, the eggs are heated over a stove but not before they are soaked in the urine. The eggs shells are then taken off and then the eggs are placed back into more urine to soak. This continues while more urine is being poured. One batch of these eggs takes an entire day to make.
The eggs are favored by many of the local residents. Some of the residents even go out to collect the urine themselves so they can cook the snack in their own homes, according to Asia One.
Residents say that the delicacy actually decreases body heat as well as reinvigorates the body and promotes better blood circulation.
When vinegar just isn’t enough.
I can think of at least four things that are worse to put the eggs in, IMO. Not that I’d eat these things.
Bwahahahahaha! Let me just say, I LOVE my country, state, city, church, neighborhood, and family!
The more I read about the insanity out there in the world the more sure I am that conservative, religious, apple pie eating, red-blooded Americans are clearly the smartest, happiest people on the planet.
Everyone else can just shut the heck up and suck down some smelly yellow eggs! Yeah!
I don’t want to know.
I. Don’t. Want. To. Know.
I heard from someone I trusted to tell me the truth, that
back in the “old days” if someone got a cold, they would take
urine...put it on bread...and the patient would eat it...
Also, many Indians(y’know Mumbai/bengali/bollywood, etc) would drink
their urine in the AM...The prime minister after Nehru(cannot
recall his name was known to do that....
All I can say to those folks are “Urine trouble, dude”
And finally, if yo’ really wanna get gross...
google, the following;;; “C. Difficile”, “resistant”, “fecal
transplantation”...or as known in the vernacular
the almighty “Sh*t shake”
The Chinese culture is way better than ours.
Do you really want to score points with girl who would be impressed by you eating piss-soaked eggs?
I'm in pharmacy school - believe me, we were introduced to that little b*st*rd.
They aren’t eggsackley on my bucket list either.
Last line FTA: Residents say that the delicacy actually decreases body heat as well as reinvigorates the body and promotes better blood circulation.
I’ll just stay hot with clogged arteries, thanks!
I don’t think my wife will be making Easter eggs this way today.
I remember seeing a show about Henry VIII some time ago. I believe that boy urine was used in the gelatin of the day. I can’t find a reference to it on google though.
