Even though it sounds odd, water drop pudding is actually quite delectable. Being originally from Japan, it resembles a large drop of water, but is actually a cake. There are flavors like strawberry, mango, plain and more as well as glazes and a helping of sliced almonds on the side. Consume within 30 minutes or it will turn into a sweet puddle of water!

8. Tornado Big Hotdog
