Americans Try Unusual European Delicacies for the First Time

I’ve been sick this week, so most of my thoughts haven’t been particularly noteworthy. (Well, unless you’re a fan of silly animal videos on Youtube….) I’m feeling better, but not quite good enough to be as creative as I normally am here. Here’s hoping that next week will be better. I really think it will be!

This video reminded me of some of the stuff I loved eating as a kid in the United States: frog legs, turtle soup, venison in any form, and chicken hearts.

What did you eat as a kid that other people might find odd?

  1. Who would eat something treated with draino? I read one of those “10 Amazing facts!” posts yesterday. One of the amazing facts was that Canadians eat maple syrup cooled on snow. “It’s like candy apples without the apples!” Am I the only one who thinks that not even a little amazing?

    Speaking of escargot, though. When my sons were younger, we went to a local restaurant that serves escargot in mushroom caps with garlic butter. So delicious. My son thought so too, until we told him what it was. Then he threw up all over the table. Ah, the memories.

    • I have no idea, Martin. It doesn’t sound appetizing at all.

      Nope, you’re not the only one who isn’t amazed by eating maple syrup cooled on snow. I thought everyone had heard of that.

      The idea of escargot grosses me out. I think I’d react much like your son did if I ever ate it accidentally. It’s interesting that you like it, though. What did it taste like?

      • To me, they aren’t much different than lobster or crab meat, or even mushrooms. They are a little more rubbery, but if you like seafood with garlic butter, I’m better you’d like them.
