It appears to be Belgian, though the brand that makes the one you posted is American. They don't test on animals! (And I would definitely eat that.)

Speaking of butters, we have apple butter in Deitscherei, and it's delicious. I try to eat it with everything.

Today I learned about 茭白 jiāobái or 高笋 gāosǔn, which is the name given to stems of Manchurian wild rice (Zizania latifolia) infected with a species-specific smut (Ustilago esculenta) and served as a vegetable. Apparently it's not allowed to be imported into the USA for fears of spreading the infection. (Manchurian wild rice isn't cultivated in North America, but other Zizania species are very valuable commercially.) I'm a fan of corn smut (a.k.a. huitlacoche), so if I were offered jiāobái I'd try it. Would you?

I'd eat it, if I were convinced it's no more risky than eating yoghurt, and if I could get over the inherent funniness of the word "smut".

Would you eat dog soup in the presence of your dog? ;)

I saw that in a Korean restaurant in China once... It was quite weird. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I've tried whale once in Norway. Didn't have any qualms about eating it. Tasted like cheap dry tuna, though.

I'd never eat dog or cat meat. Sorry, but that's just to much for me. Then again, I find eating snails perfectly normal while many people find it gross.

Reminds me of the time I was talking to a Japanese girl who told me she loved horse meat while I found it shocking. Then I told her rabbit meat was tasty and she looked at me as if I were a psychopath. :lol:

Horse meat isn't that strange. Although I've never had it.

Rabbit... haven't had that in over a decade. Never been a fan of it, anyway.

Maybe she finds bunnies "kawaii".

She did. The word didn't came up (I didn't know it existed, by then, anyway), but she said it is wrong to eat something so lovely. :lol:

I have tried horse meat now and it's pretty good, but back in 2003 I found it quite shocking. In my area horses are considered noble, we don't have any habit of eating them.

I can see myself eating almost everything mentioned in this page of this thread, plus most of the things on the previous page. (Of course, I say that without having actually tried any of those things...:P).
