I could eat black pudding three times a day every day for the rest of my life although I expect my life would be considerably foreshortened if I did.

I had barbecued bunny once. It was quite tasty.

I think I had tripe in some sort of stew in the Caribbean. It was disgusting.

I'm wondering if there are any Americans on here who've eaten Rocky Mountain Oysters?

Would that be similar to the Canadian specialty, Prairie Oysters?

When I first moved to Teesside, people used to call pork pies 'growlers' as reputation had it that they were made from dogmeat. The dogs were supposedly captured in an area of Middlesbrough known locally as 'Doggie' because of the high number of strays roaming the streets.

I like pork pies so I may have had dog after all.

To set the record straight, I haven't eaten either variety.

When I did a season in a local cold store seven years ago, we mostly loaded up boxes of sheep, cattle and deer cuts.

Most of the time it was the regular cuts you see in supermarkets, etc. But one time there were several boxes marked "deer pizzles" we had to load up into a container bound for China. Apparently they get used for herbal potions and pills.

No-one mentioned kangaroo? It's nice. Quite dark and gamey, a bit venison-like.

To the best of my knowledge I've never eaten dog, horse or pigs ears, but I've had all the others.

I guess I've eaten a few strange things through the years. One I remember fondly from Spain were the baby eels. They were about an inch long, just 1/8-inch in diameter and were served with a spicey oil sauce. They'd serve them in a bowl and they looked like black spaghetti.

i'm kinda surprised at myself here. with the topic in general, i would've thought i had eaten and liked more freaky things than most people around here, but going by the list, i either haven't tried or actively dislike a good bit of it.

i hate raw seafood with passionate loathing. even one my most beluvved of sea crittern, the oyster, should be cooked before eating. sushi? ptoooooooey. (the beezle loved sushi and would bedevil me with it. i have a sushi magnet on my fridge that came from her as a christmas present.)

i have never had pigs ears, tripe, goat, horse, dog, black pudding. (mann, reading thru that list makes me remember that i really wanna be a vegan someday.)

wait... is tripe the same thing as chitlins? chitlins aint all that bad, but meh. my ma used to eat chitlins and hogshead cheese and sweetbreads and all that, but none of it ever appealed to me.

what else have i had? turtle, snake, deer, the occasional flukey choco-covered insect sposed to be candy (my sister gave some of those out at her wedding reception. i must admit, her lil set of gifts for the people who attended was rather... original.)

Raw oysters are the food of the gods. As close as food can get to "mind-blowing."

Nope. Even the more liberal/conspiracy-minded science folk in the region, the ones who raise all kindsa scares, are saying that Gulf seafood is good to go. Which is good for me. :)
