For a country that puts a premium on personal liberties, America has a relatively lengthy list of foods that are not legal for us to feast on, many of which are considered delicacies in other countries. So if you're looking to taste a much revered (albeit controversial) Sardinian cheese, the national fruit of Jamaica, or one of Taiwan's favorite street snacks, it might be high time to splurge on a couple of plane tickets...or drum up a few black market contacts.
