Aye, salmon roe - very tasty in it's own right but utterly lacking the complex palate of good caviar - depends entirely on your palate though [Wink]

This is where I come up with something right? Something really clever...

One of my favorite lollipop flavors a few years back was called "Tiger's Blood." It sounded so odd that I couldn't resist it, and actually it was quite good. Like a punch flavor. Haven't seen a Tiger's Blood pop in a long time now...

The ubiquitous "sno-kone shacks" that appear in the parking lot have tiger's blood flavored sno-kones, and they are like a cherry punch flavor. They have some bizarro flavors considering it's just colored sugar water that has a flavor in it. One had "Sponge Bob" (no word on whether it tasted like sea water) and Suicide (bullets?...or perhaps eyeliner and tattoos a la Suicide Girls?)

i think a suicide flavored snow-cone is pretty un-PC.

I don't know about today, but back in MY day (way too many years ago now) a Suicide sno-cone was one that had a little of every flavor in it. Ended up looking brownish purple, and as I recall, didn't really taste that good.

There was also Suicide soda. Same principle, mix up all soda flavors and pretend you like it. [Big Grin]

bleccch. I had an image of it tasting like the tiger's blood flavor.

We used to do what you are talking about at Taco Bell where they have the "self-service sodas"...we would call it a bomb though.

About veal, Here is a page that if you scroll down will show UK veal production. Seems to be as good as any meat production can be...

Now a description of veal production in the U.S. still seems to have a crate by any other name... [Frown]

I really loved veal picotta growing up, but haven't had it in years because of this. Oh well.

Shark fin soup is pretty un-PC since almost all large shark species are either endangered or critically endangered.

I also hear shark fins aren't that good for you due to the concentrated levels of mercury that builds up in them.

Candy cigs were sold here under the brand "Fags" until that became unPC. They then changed to "Fads", then seemed to disappear altogether.

Lick on a plunger after dipping it in a toilet bowl... what a delicacy.

ETA: I know for a fact that the store, Big Lots, sells these, having tried them myself.

I'm surprised no one has said anything about those licorice pipes. I had one a few weeks ago, and they are disgusting.

P.S. First post-yay!

Thanks a lot, my 8 yo son saw this and now is demanding that I take him to Big Lots to get one... [Big Grin]
