How Do “Snails” Taste?
Snails have a chewy texture and distinctive earthy taste. You can compare snails taste with mushrooms to some extent. Another good thing about snails is that they readily absorb whatever sauce you cook them. If you enjoy seafood like oysters and mussels, then you will enjoy eating snails too.

Do You Know Snails Are Healthy?
Yes, snails are healthy food choices and great for all those who are health or diet conscious. Business Insider lists snails among the 50 Foods We Avoid that Are Healthy for you. The article describes snails as “virtually fat-free, carbohydrate-free and sugar-free, escargot are an excellent source of lean protein. They’re rich in iron, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus and potassium. Like other mollusks, snails are a good source of tryptophan, an amino acid that helps the brain produce serotonin. Serotonin is a very important neurotransmitter that plays a role in your body’s regulation of sleep impulse and appetite. Eating tryptophan-rich foods may help improve your mood, which might explain why snails are too mellow when they need to get somewhere fast.”
However, you may let the #TeamKeobi know in advance if you are allergic to seafood or snails, or if you are also allergic to any ingredient or spice.
