I’ve eaten the still-warm heart of a goat. I ate that in Kenya. It was quite disturbing. It was salty and it had lumpy bits. It was really more of a tick-that-box experience than anything else. I probably wouldn’t do it again.

Dog stew in Korea. It was like a soupy casserole, kind of like beef, but more tender. I had it when I was in third grade, too, but I was told it was beef. If you eat it without knowing, it’s OK, but because it’s dog, I don’t think I’ll eat it again.

Baby duck egg. It’s a duck egg with a developed embryo inside, halfway between a boiled egg and a chicken. The taste was good. Part of it was the texture of hard boiled egg, part was crunchy. I think I would eat it again, but not daily.

Sea cucumber. It was a really weird texture and it was a really dark navy blue. It didn’t have any taste, but it smelt like medicine. It was soft on the outside, but crunchy. I had it at a sushi place, but I don’t think I’d have that again.

The weirdest thing I’ve eaten is escargot. I had it at an end-of-year party for my work. It was a bit like like clam, but afterward I realized that I had an allergy to it, although I didn’t throw up. I don’t think I’d eat it again.

An earthworm — for a dare when I was in high school. It was alright, but I mean — it’s a worm. I plucked it out of the ground and ate it. It’s not that frightening, but there is no reason to do it again unless it’s for a lot of money.
