The traditional "escargot" are land snails. However, various other snails that inhabit salt water are also eaten - particularly the Periwinkle. And a large Asian market near us frequently carries live Moon Snails as well.

Son of a gun, they are land snails.
Thanks for pointing that out Drama. If I ever observe lent, I'll remember not to eat them on Friday.

I love escargot but I don't want to think about it too long. I'm not sure what their classification is - animal, vegetable or mineral. I just can't watch them crawl.

Aww - I think they're adorable!

In fact, back in NY the seafood counter at one of our local markets would sometimes carry them alive & kicking. They were far to cute for me to think of eating them, but my mother did buy me a couple which I kept as pets in a terrarium for a good long while.

Isn't it still about tuna?

So live land snails are sold at the seafood counter huh?
Kinda confuses the situation, don't you think?

No way on this green earth am I going to de-shell a snail and eat it. The thought just grosses me out. My mother did this because Italians are very big on snails and back in the "old days" we cleaned our own food, but thank God I never saw her do it. Have you ever seen a snail without it's shell? They're called slugs and people in Washingtons State know what I'm talking about. Just put the dang things in garlic/parlsey butter with some good crusty bread, and I'll eat them, but I'm not cleaning them - and just to keep the thread alive - I'm not cleaning any tuna either.
