For those who don't want to watch a video, in Hakone they cook eggs in sulfurous hotsprings. The outsides go black, but they taste the same inside and make you live 7 years longer.

大涌谷卵?

Yeah, I kind of miss Owakundani eggs. They're pretty good. The yolk doesn't taste as "dry" and bland as a regular boiled egg (to me, at least). I haven't had one in ... a long time (about 16 years now).

There's enough hot springs in the U.S., so why aren't they doing it here? Beside the obvious FDA approval.

They don't do this in the U.S. because there is no reason to. All they do is cook them in the hot springs and the sulfur turns the shell black and they have a myth of increasing your life by 7 years if you eat one. There is no selling point in the States for these besides the chance to eat a black shelled egg. They also smell terrible because of the sulfur; which sucks when you go to see the area and everyone smells like they farted because they are all carrying around those eggs...

In Japan, hot springs are viewed as opportunities to build an hot springs spa....

In the U.S., hot springs are viewed as national parks that people have to stay out of in order to protect nature....

One of their local o-miyage (specialty gifts) is a box of egg-shaped cakes with dark chocolate coating. I don't think these make you live 7 years longer.

It's just a normal boiled egg that smells like dry sewer gas. I've had some unusual food in Japan but I don't have any desire for one of these.

that sounds like a recipe for cancer.

Sulfur? Why not asbestos? May as well.
