Want a ‘treat’? Try snail caviar

Snail caviar in France. Image copyright LeFrancoPhoney blog in La Clusaz.Yes, apparently the French aren’t happy with just eating fully-grown snails. Now in France, you can buy snail eggs. I read about this in a magazine in La Clusaz a few weeks ago and decided to keep the article as a worthy snippet for my blog.
The French words basically say that in these times of ‘thin cows’ and with the financial crisis, if you want to impress your friends at Christmas, why not replace fish caviar with snail caviar. At only €49 for 30 grams, it’s a bargain (apparently). I’m struggling to think of any eggs I’d like to eat less than snail eggs. I’m struggling to justify spending anything like that amount of money for the ‘privilege’ of doing so. Just. Yuck.

Happy New Year too.
