The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Show Us Your Grocery Finds


#1

I’ll start.

Pints of Frozen Pig’s Blood, $2.69

Beef blood is also available.

Ranch 99 Market
Gardena, California


#2

I’m going to assume that you categorize that as “good.” I should see if my Latino market has it. Was it in the frozen section?


#3

You’re such a carnivore


#4

Yep… That’s probably just what goes into that delicious looking boat noodle soup we’ve been avoiding.


#5

The best soup in the world…according to Bourdain.


#6

What the heck is that bologna / silly putty looking thing?


#7

Blood cake, darlin’ :slight_smile:


#8

Oh gawd


#9

It looks like it has a bloody salamander attached to it.


#10

Either that or a sprout! This is a renowned place in Hue, Vietnam, that starts serving at 8AM and is usually out and closed in a few hours. Fantastic.


#11

Wow… Okay. I loved Vietnam.


#12

I found it maybe kind :slight_smile: like tofu. Texture but the taste was all that surrounded it. PS: We also had a few bites of rat in Thailand. LOL.

[/quote]Noooo!


#14

I know this site won’t take just LOL…so I’ll say LOL!!! It was really more like chicken jerky.


#15

:joy:. There’s that chicken reference again.


#16

@catholiver Yes, frozen. And really, rat? (I’m going to pretend the “blood cake” photo never happened.). WHY???

@TheCookie mmmm hmmmm. We should make some next time we get invited to a potluck. :smiling_imp:


#17

Don’t you eat blood sausage - it’s great


#18

No. I know it’s probably delicious. But I just can’t.


#19

Why ? I assume you ate eating meat, so blood isn’t so much different


#20

there is flesh and there is blood. They are different. I’m not poet enough to explain, especially after whiskey.
