I've never had escargot in a restaurant, but me and my brother both liked the snails we harvested from the ivy growing on my house in Concord CA.

Love garlic. Use it in everything from Chinese, to Italian, to Mexican, to east European, to American, and other foods.

As to the little tree slugs being ugly, I'll grant you they are after they're cooked. However, they're kind of cute when they're on the hoof, or pad, or shoe, or foot, or.....whatever.

I like garlic, but it hates me, so I had to give it up when my innards strongly objected in no uncertain terms.

We tried the escargot several years ago, but it's not something I can be bothered with now.

My first objection to snails is that they are ugly.  My second is the garlic.  I can't stand the stuff!

Spud, you're the first person outside of Scotland I've ever head admit they like haggis. I've had it once. There won't be a twice.

On the other hand, I do like black pudding served with English and Irish breakfasts. And, I do like escargot, in a garlic butter sauce with some crusty bread for an appetizer.

Ha ha.  Looks like a cat & human corn-munching contest.

On a tastier note......

I just signed a petition asking the USDA that meat products containing "pink slime" be labelled as such.

For my own meals, I'm stuck with chicken and has become more expensive than beef...pork, ditto. 

It's disgusting, and I understand what drove the French to make a delicacy out of snails, but the SOBs had NO right to import them to the USA 150 years ago.  I will never eat the ugly things. 

Chicken, eggs and cheese (and veg).  Boring diet, but tolerable.

Daniel, being a vegetarian, I would guess most of them sound quite gross to you.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 31, 2014 at 10:53am

Gross foods: I like potted meat and haggis.  

Black pudding, jellied moose nose, and hasma sound good.  

The rest do sound gross, even to me, but I think I would try them all if given the opportunity.
