Americans have a taste of this powerful food that is nicknamed as "The Smelliest Food In The World"

Surströmming is a staple in the Swedish cuisine and is made by fermenting Baltic Sea herring for about six months. There is just enough salt to prevent it from rotting and when opened - it releases an overwhelming smell that's often been described as putrid and unbearable. The dish is traditionally eaten outside so to have room for the smell to go away.
