    I love escargot. If prepared correctly they are not chewy. I never thought I would eat snails but once I did I was hooked.

    We love alligator sausage. They have it in N.J at the Craw fish festival every year.

    I love snails!
    we have had alligator on skewers here in FL.
    I like gator........has the consistency of a well done sea scallop and kind of tastes like chicken

    peg, how about the scorpion?
    did it have a taste?

    and a friend in aruba cooked BOA
    the BOA was found in her garden, it was slated to be executed, so they decided to see if it was delicious.
    her husband said yes, she said NOT SO MUCH

    I am nauseated looking at the photos.

    I’ve tried snails a few times but neither hate or love them. The scorpion didn’t really have a taste but it definitely scratched on the way down since I didn’t chew it. Crickets are the next thing to try. They are supposed to have lots of nutrients.

    Oh, and I forgot about the jellyfish. Ordering dim sum one day and we just pointed at the dishes that looked interesting. Turns out jellyfish is interesting!

    I am so with you on this one. I'll try beef, chicken, turkey, veal, and fish almost any way and any ethnic cuisine, but no to much else.

    You might, if they didn’t tell you what it was first. The way this was prepared is hard to describe. The texture was similar to a marshmallow but denser. The color was kind of pink. Shaped liked a disk and it had some crunchy, thin stick things along the edges (still don’t know what they were)!
