    Many cultures eat things that would appear strange to us. I don't think there's many meats I wouldn't at least try.
    THat scandanaivain rotten fish and those asian petrified eggs with bird foetuses in are where I draw the line.

    Likewise, but with things like BSE we really shouldn't eat animals that have been fed other animals.

    This is a good point. There's not many carnivores we eat at all.

    Weirdish meats I've eaten:

    Aligator
    Kangaroo
    Ostrich
    Venison
    Boar
    Zebra
    Snail
    Pigeon
    Shark
    Squid
    Eel

    Of those only Aligator sometimes eats meat other than fish.

    I do find alligator very oily.

    I wouldn't call boar, venison, snail or squid weird (or weirdish). Snail simply because it's eaten by our nearest neighbours, I've also had frog legs.

    The peculiar things I've had are guinea pig (Peru) and rams testicles (Turkey).

    I didn't get that. Thought it was like fishy chicken myself.

    It may have been because mine was deep fried.

    I had Alligator nuggets in Florida.

    It was a starter before I ate a 1lb snow crab. I'm not kidding you the legs on this thing were nearly a foot long. It was served whole on an wire framed bucket type affair on top of plate with the legs dangling down. to date it's the only meal I've eaten which had a pair of pliers supplied with it. Unfortunately it was back in the days before mobile phone cameras.

    I never realised snail was classed as meat!

    Squid, eel and shark certainly aren't.

    Eat them before they eat you. Seems reasonable.

    Many of the fish humans eat are carnivorous

    £2.62's worth of (500g) of reduced Tesco steak mince, 77g of water and 46g of burger and onion seasoning and under 20 mins later...

    The shiney appearance of the burgers (each about 80g) is because of the cellophane discs which came with the burger press.

    If that's the place in Weymouth then, TBF, their "off-the-wall" flavours are very good. Last fishing trip, I bought a job-lot of "apple crumble" ones, much to the disgust of the rest of the group, for pre-trip breakfast butties. When they were cooked next morning...they were really, really good.

    Had a couple of those M and S Italian pork sausages the other day. They weren't half bad, fennel was very prominent though.

    Fancy something different, something spicy?

    I can recommend these little Hungarian beauties just put them in a pan of cold water and by the time it's boiling they're ready, of course you can fry or grill them if you prefer. Great with anything but I usually go for mash and green beans.

    They're readily available over here in Germany but you Brits may have to search for them.

    Yep. Of course in ye bad old days of yore, supermarkets would have their own random sampling regimes testing labs before being centralised by MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) and then the processes/labs was "rationalised"...

    Reading the comments the rumour is that it's Tescos but we'll have to wait until a freedom of information request forces them to release it to be sure.

    Aren't M*******'s, A*** and the C*-** pretty good at sourcing "British" produce. Seeing that M*******'s "home turf" is Ooooop Norf I would expect their "British" sourcing to be a USP.

    Thanks ... they'd be number two on my list and I guess it makes sense as they're probably the only one big enough to take a whole factory's output (otherwise other chains would be included).

    The issue is that as long as the meat is processed and turned into a sausage in the UK, they can state UK on the label even if the meat comes from abroad.

    Personally I'd change that regulation ASAP.

    Only a rumour at the moment. Anything is speculation until proven.

    On other supermarket matters Co-Op are making a big thing about saying all of their meat will now be from the UK at the moment. To me that suggest it wasn't before. There is of course nothing to link this recent advertising campaign with the current food scandal.

    When I lived in Ellesmere Port there was a M*******'s a stone throw away which was handy but I soon got tired of the tough tasteless meat, cereal/fat filled sausages and overripe but still tasteless veg. Mind you that was six years ago, they may have improved since.

    This was why I specifically used the word "sourced".

    Funny that, the Co-Op were once major player in the UK's agribusiness sector (farm ownership) until they sold it to a big player in the pharma-industry (AKA a "medical charity").

    Anybody know what Maureen's from the favourite sausage is?

    I've heard she's filth.
