Snails, like muscles really just the french put heaps of garlic butter on them so you can;t taste much else.

Kangaroo meat was divide and really suprizingly sweet

Ahhh I want to introduce grits to people in the Uk. have you got a reciepe i can use to make it?

I have to say i loved it when i had it.

:ditto: :plus1:

It's like eating a hotdog, unless you get an all beef speciality type of hotdog you never know what's in it and I'd rather not know personally.

Did anybody else get a flashback of "Armaggedon" when they were all in the NASA testing facility and the one dude was talking about eating "Haggis"? :lol:

Growing up right next to my Grandma's farm, and coming from a family where most of the men hunt, I've eaten a LOT of "unusual" things (beef tongue and heart--both quite good, actually. Beef/pig brains, and fish eggs (do NOT like any of them). Raccoon, ground hog, wild rabbit, deer meat, etc....

People have even said that my Grandma would've canned the squeal of a pig if she could've...but an entire quart of pig's BLOOD? Somehow that just does me in lol

I met a friend of mine from Scotland in NYC last spring. We had Black Pudding for breakfast at a bar in NYC. It was actually pretty good. Keep in mind that the kitchen didn't open till 10:00 am and we were drinking pints at 7:00 am watching the Rugby playoffs. That may of made it taste a little better than what is actually is!

I was in Scotland while in the Navy, and had to try haggis. It was indeed a very good food. I had it at first in a "fast food" restaurant. I eventually had some homemade haggis, and it was even better. To all of those who are a bit put off by the ingredients, just think of what is in a hotdog. Plus haggis is much better.

Everytime I hear about Haggis I think about the movie Armageddon when the team was in the NASA astronaut area getting tested and Max described what it was to the one doctor :lol:
