Two Tonnes Of Ram Penis Exported To China

Published November 30, 2012

Two tonnes of ram penis are on their way from Iceland to China, where the market has finally opened up for the product.
Ram penis is deep fried in some Asian dishes, and the demand appears to be growing. Vísir (warning: article has photo of giant pile of ram penis) reports that the south Iceland slaughterhouse Sláturfélagi Suðurlands (SS) has exported two tonnes of ram penis to China.
Guðmundur Svavarsson, the manufacturing director of SS, told reporters that the penises are taken from rams that are slaughtered in the autumn, and that they are considered a delicacy in many parts of the world, China among them.
When asked if he has tasted the dish, Guðmundur said, “I guess I’d be up for trying it. I’m not exactly excited for it,” but astutely points out that Icelanders already eat ram’s testicles as a part of their traditional foods.
While he could not promise that ram penis would appear on the Icelandic market anytime soon, he encouraged Icelanders to try ram penis if they felt so inclined.
