Whether it's cultural differences, antiquated laws, or public health issues, the reason and places these seven foods have been banned may surprise you.

I'm not a gum chewer, but I've had enough encounters with stepping on somebody's chewed gum to understand the problem that forced Singapore to ban gum.

France's ban on ketchup certainly wouldn't work in the US as it looks sometimes like people believe ketchup is the main dish served with a side of other foods.

I've never tried haggis and don't plan to after finding out what it's made of. This ban has no effect on me, but I suppose true traditional haggis lovers (I haven't found any yet) might disagree with the import ban on the Scottish food.
