Like them or hate them?

I have tried it once. I liked it alot. Wierd texture and not something to eat everyday. But I liked it.

Had 'em a couple of times. Not bad, but predictably rubbery.

Tried them, Liked them

I don't eat bait.

Tried 'em, didn't much care for 'em. The garlic butter taste is good, the snail taste not so much. Plus, they're rubbery.

a local restaurant makes them by broiling? them in Garlic sauce with a bread crumb and parmesian cheese topping. Damn good too

I would have to be twice as hungry as I can even imagine
to try them. Never have, hopefully never will.
I believe the same about Okra.

Had them in MD they were great
tried them again in TX......like pencil erasers
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 8:38:08 PM EDT
it was more a texture issue than a taste issue for me
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 8:39:53 PM EDT
I had some snail in Greeca once. They were OK. A little rubbery, a little gritty, and a little too salty for my liking. I didn't hate them, but I doubt I'll ever order them again.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 8:42:04 PM EDT
Will NEVER try them.



Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:01:03 PM EDT
I've had them several times. Loved them. Like oysters though, NEVER cut them in half! Real green

on the boat's the only time I ever ordered them. they're good, just not worth paying money at a restaurant to get em.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:02:48 PM EDT
Liked the flavor, hated the texture.

It's like a rubber eraser dipped in melted butter and garlic.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:07:13 PM EDT
NEVER!


Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:08:20 PM EDT
O hell yes. Garlic and butter, light creme sauce all baked in a puff pastry. Yummmmmm.

Tried it many moons ago, I remember very much not liking it, mainly due to a certain sand-like texture at times. This is when I was pretty young, so I don't really remember any specifics besides that.

I'd be willing to try it again now, though.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:32:50 PM EDT
Not for me
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:37:59 PM EDT
It's gonna be a huge surprise but... i have tried them...many times and i love them

From the lore of Grandpa who shucked oysters as a job: oysters don't "shit" like we do. That green stuff is an accumulation of what they do not digest/use. It is not nasty, just not usable to the oyster (or us non-bivalves).

'Not sure if that is right or not, but I don't worry about the little things. Raw oysters...chew 'em up, only pussies try to swallow them whole.

Escargot I like, but it is mainy a medium for great garlic and sour cream to stay on the fork until it gets in the mouth. But the snail flavor is not bad either.
