Exotic Food Scavenger Hunt

Ages: 18+

Gender: Male and/or Female

Take a culinary trip around the world with this exotic and challenging scavenger hunt.  This is a great game for foodies, or for anyone who is interested in expanding their knowledge about food and discovering new cuisines. 

The exotic food scavenger hunt will have you exploring your city’s groceries, markets and restaurants to discover places where you can find such unusual fare as Japanese fugu fish (which is deadly poison unless properly prepared), the strangely named Swedish holiday drink, Glögg and even old American favorites such as Good and Plenty candies.

Whether you emerge the winner or the loser of this scavenger hunt, you will definitely become a savvier eater.  Plus, you’ll learn something new about your city and the many weird and wonderful cultural it has to offer!



Create teams of three to five people.  You can play this game with as many teams as you like. 

In this version of the scavenger hunt, you don’t need to collect the items and bring them back for points.  You just need to provide the name and address of the place where the item can be found.  You can collect a business card or brochure from the establishment, or write down the name, address and phone number of the grocery, market or restaurant.  If you find the item on a vendor’s cart or other mobile kiosk, just write down the name of the business, the street corner on which you found it and a phone number or URL if applicable.

You will have three hours to find as many items on the list as possible.

The team that finds the greatest number of items on the scavenger list wins!
