Pavlova is a popular dessert in Australia and New Zealand of meringue crust topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit, such as kiwi and strawberries. Pavlova is named for Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, who was known for her lithe and airy style of dancing, thought to be similar to the texture of the dessert.

There is an ongoing controversy over whether pavlova is native to New Zealand or Australia. Despite the Oxford English Dictionary stating in 2010 that the dish comes from New Zealand, pavlova is still enjoyed and its origin debated in both regions.

Prison Food From Around The World That Will Either Make You Hungry — Or Wanna Barf

Prison is not meant to be an enjoyable experience. You’re in there for committing a crime, after all. So it would be foolish for us to expect that prison meals are anything more than sub-par — in America, anyway. However, the standards for prison food vary from country to country. Elsewhere in the world, some prison food isn’t all that bad. In fact, some penitentiaries serve meals that we wouldn’t bat an eye at if placed in front of us at a restaurant. Other institutions serve straight up garbage — literally. We’ve compiled a list of interesting, standard, and downright disgusting prison foods served around the world, and depending on where you are, the meals might just scare you into everlasting good behavior.

The below meals are just samples of prison food a country has to offer.

Depending on the penitentiary and the local government, some menus may be better or worse than those in a neighboring prison. What inmates eat has been a point of controversy for many governments around the world, and fingers have been pointed at officials who allow health and safety standards of prison cafeterias to slip on their watch.

Would you eat any of the below prison food?

Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, you’ll never have to.
