I went to this asian store and I saw this Jar full of snails and it was like $30...so I imagine that must taste quite good.

Clam like texture, a bit chewy. But then it was soaking in butter, so I only tasted butter.

when I tried them a few years ago they were boiled in garlic butter.... so... mostly buttery taste because of that, the texture was the only thing that told me it was a snail... and it was enough to make convince me to not try them again

Publix sells them on the canned meat isle and the label does not say snails but "Escargo". Buy a can and then report back to us. They cost just a few dollars per can and are competitvely price with Hormel Spam.

Taste great to me, though I've only ordered them from nice restaurants. I don't know why people are so grossed out by them. Is a clam or an oyster any less icky?

what an insult... it's probably a good laugh, but after a while, you'll just look stupid, comp.

I gotta say to the op, if you are too scared of the taste, eat it with peppers, rice, veggies, bread or macorroni or something that will blend in. I'd be scared, but I'd do it if someone really dared me to, in person.

Taste pretty good to me... I made the mistake of making my wife try them (at a nice restaurant) once.

For those of you who might get a date some day, here's a piece of advice: If she has cheap tastes, don't try to fix it by introducing her to finer foods. If she wants hamburgers and asks "what's a filet mignon?" or "what's a ribeye", simply reply, "Okay, we'll get you the best burgers in town.

<sigh>
Now my wife enjoys eating lobster, escargot, . . .
She had never tried them before she met me.
