Snails as an appetizer? Fiction or truth?

Is really something people eat? And if so is just any ol snail or a particular kind.. And arent they all slimy and gross? I really would like to know details about this..We have some odd things we eat here too like pork rinds, and pigs feet, poke salad (poisonous weed only found in certain parts of the US that has to be carefully prepared and then usually cooked with eggs)..


Country: France


Of course snails are eaten in France. I had the same feeling about them being slimy when I was first served snails... They are cooked and a lovely butter based sauce and are quite a treat to eat...
