A type of disgusting food very rich idiots pay for to impress other very rich idiots.
"Did you try that delicacy?"
"Yeah, it smelled like shit and tasted like the liquid that collects at the bottom of a trashbag."

The word used by "rich barbarians" to try and hide the fact they are eating the most disgusting animal parts that are otherwise too gross to even mention.
Delicacy: Monkey-BRAINS, Bulls-BALLS, Snails (Escargot), Frogs-Legs, Caviar (Fish-EGGS), Diseased Duck-Liver (foie gras), Pate (Grade Z meat whipped into a blend of filth), Sweetbreads (Thymus glands of a Lamb, Cows, and Pigs.)
Cow-TONGUE, Cat-Penis, Dogs-Balls, Pig-Ears & Feet, etc.

Usually niche food of acquired taste & often questionable origin enjoyed by only a small amount of people. It can also be a tasty food with a sky-high price tag.

While Wikipedia quotes it as being "a food item that is considered highly desirable in certain cultures," what they really mean is that it's panned by most of the population, but more people in that country will eat it than anywhere else.

A delicacy can range from poor people food (like the natto parents will force their children to eat), to tiny portions of overhyped rich people food (like french truffles).

Other delicacies are used purely for novelty & entertainment value outside their country of origin, such as eating a can of Surströmming, Balut, Pidon, or drinking Birds Nest Soup for a web review series about gross foods.
Aileen sent me a can of Haggis; a delicacy of Scotland. I was reluctant to eat it because it contained offal & because canned versions are never better than fresh. She reminded me what goes into sausages. I tried it & was relieved that it tasted like corned beef hash.

Anon: Hey Claude you wanna watch Fantasia during our come down?

Claude: Fantasia OG or Fantasia 2000?

Anon: Fantasia 2000

Claude: I must confess Fantasia 2000 is abysmal, I much prefer the 1940's version, it's a Mind Delicacy

Anon: Your all about the popcorn classic Claude & that's why I <3 you!

Ghetto Delicacy's are delicious treats which are only enjoyable and found in impoverished (Ghetto) areas. They can be honey buns, corn nuts, hot Cheetos, Now and Later, Red Soda, or large pickles sold at local gas stations. Also, Ghetto Delicacy's can be particular neighborhood restaurants like Harold's Chicken in Chicago. Or Hillary's rib's in the north suburbs of Illinois.
I'm hungry I think I need to go to Harold's Chicken to enjoy some ghetto delicacy's.

Man, last night I had some hot cheetos I miss eating those ghetto delicacy's.
