      Don't you have to soak the eggs in some sort of acid first, to dissolve the shell? I know some snail species' eggs have calcium shells, like bird ones.

    Had some at a street market stall in Morocco. They were surprisingly tasty, I would definitely eat them again.

    I find that in general most foods which people turn their nose up at can be quite delicious if you can overcome your squeamishness.

    Yes, I've had them a few times, but they're just a vehicle for the herbed garlic butter, in my opinion, since that's pretty much all you taste. I'd rather just have garlic bread.

        Usually, the snails will be fasted from two or three days before they are to be prepared. This is so they can clear away the gut. Rather than starve them some people prefer to feed them oats only for some days.

        It's sad to read so many people ate flavorless canned snails. They have absolutely got their own taste depending what they fed on growing up.

    They taste earthy (like dirt basically) and not much else like others have mentioned and the texture kind of reminded me of canned oysters. There's a reason I guess they tend to be smothered in butter and herbs, I guess.
    I wasn't buying shells to stuff them back into so I put them on bread with cheese, butter, and parsley. I also made stuffed mushrooms with a snail in each one, too.

    Overall decent to try, but I'm not going out of my way to eat them again.

    This anon sums it up.
    They are not overly earthy though and I have only eaten them with garlic butter and herbs, both in the UK and France.

    In Britain, the Roman snail is now a protected species (due to over eating) but garden snails are fine, even if they are smaller.

    Like other have said here, little earthy and the sauce usually overpowers that. Pleasant texture most of the time. Nice to have in a shell platter but I wouldn't order it on it's own. Not something I'd go out of my way to try and cook.

    Even in France this isn't a run-of-the-mill lunch at your parents kind of dish honestly. Or it might be in some regions I guess.

      It's not really different than deep-fried pickles, corn dogs, funnel cake, and elote when you think about it

        I'm French, this is mostly true, although food fairs aren't as big a thing here as I understand it is in the USA (too bad they sound fun). The only time I see escargots are on a shellfish platter or at family gatherings. Sometimes my Dad will order it in a restaurant but even that's rare. I see them in the frozen section of my Auchan all the time though, never seen anyone buy it yet.

          Fairs in the US can be huge. They're usually annual, biannual, or biennial
          Fairs in France are more frequent, and the closest thing in the US are block parties
          Most fairs in the US are county fairs where school kids get awards and they happen in the countryside
          State fairs are off the chain, it's just crazy at the wheel, all of the bonkers food gets served and out-of-state carnies run the rides, and there are always bikers around doing illegal shit
          I like the French fairs where teenagers drive me and my dad home for cigarettes, but I also like American fairs where heifers bring home prizes and I'm not talking about cattle, son

            What are these fairs in France though? I've been here fifteen years and the closest I can think of would be various salons (agriculture, chocolat, gastronomie etc) or trade shows meant for professionals. We get food for local festivals too but I don't think that would qualify. Am I missing out on food fairs over here? I live in Toulouse so it's not like I'm out in the sticks either.

            From what I've seen of state food fairs I'm very jealous.

    Yeah, they're perfectly fine. I've had them prepared in the French manner as "escargot", and they really just take on the flavor of the butter and garlic.
    Then I tried them prepared in a simple spanish preparation and the actual snail flavor is more conspicuous. It's mild, savory, reminiscent of shellfish like mussels or clams.
    Nothing spectacular that warrants their popular assessment as a delicacy, but they're not at all challenging to the palate compared to other peculiar edibles.

      If they are in unsanitary condition the snails may pick up a parasite from rodent's droppings. Rare to happen from properly kept snails from the heliculture. But you should not ever eat random wild snail off of the ground as they likely been feeding on molds and droppings which even if they are not harmful could be very unpleasant. Some could be poison as well. Never ever try and eat fresh water snail. Very bad idea unless you want clams to grow inside your lungs.
