Snail Caviar

Move over, fish! There's a new roe on the dinner menu: snail caviar.

Being the first in the world to produce snail caviar shell-less and unpasteurized, the farm - founded by two former snail farmers - spent nearly four years perfecting the production and harvesting process, resulting in tiny, smooth cream-colored pearls that reportedly burst on the tongue with subtle autumn and woody flavors.

Being a food hipster ain't cheap: 50 gram (1.8 oz) of snail caviar retails for $115.

Ditto that Mel.....
I have some apple snails in my aquariums that love to hump and lay eggs all over the place, maybe I can start selling their egg clumps for a bunch of $$...

Well, it's official, there is nothing that you can't sell to rich, stupid people. Snail caviar? If they sold it for ten times what they are asking now, they'd sell much more than they are selling now, because if you charge a lot for it, it MUST be better and worth more, simply based on exclusivity. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

It's all so relative. I grew up eating Durian, love the smell and the taste, so to hear Anthony B (whom I love) hyperbolically say "it's like French-kissing your dead grandmother..." makes me roll my eyes. It's totally un-exotic to me.
