Smile Hi there from West Bromwich!

We've not got a lot going for us here in the heart of the 'Black Country' of the West Midlands in the U.K., but when it comes to food we can't complain.

O.K., you'd be hard pressed to find a good quality restaurant within a 4 mile radius, but when it comes to ethnic food we've got the lot.

We have excellent and inexpensive Chinese, Indian and West Indian takeaways, and if you want to make it yourself we've got all the ingredients from Super Kernel Basmati rice to Scotch Bonnet chillies.

So we can't moan too much.

Could you please please take dog from the list. I know there are countries that eat them, but, this is a big pet loving site and that just makes my stomach turn horribly.

The most unusual for me is frog legs.

I had sheep's heart with liver, I believe, that was in a bbq sauce. It was really good but I never would have ordered it myself.

Hello and welcome to DC. I don't like the idea of putting "DOG" on your list. We love our pets especially dogs and the thought of eating dog meat is a terrible thing.

Nothing all that odd. Jelly fish, sea cukecumbers, sea urchin gonads, and baby eels.

Am told raw oysters and clams die when you take off the shell, but am not sure. Have looked carefully to see the heart beating, and have not detected it. But am afraid I am usually far more interested in enjoying the mollusk than examining it.

Take care.

Still the most weird and horrid for me was goat head soup. YUCK!

Lamb, bear, deer and beef heart and liver are great.!

Welcome to the group!

Red face How Do I Edit the Poll Answers?

Glad to oblige- sorry if I upset anyone and promise not to do it again.

Can someone please tell me how to edit the poll answers? I can't find the button to do it with, nor anything in the FAQs.

Thanks
