snails? I don't know, but I'd try them
grapefruit - tastes like bitter dirt to me, but I will drink the juice in a Greyhound, or Salty Dog (preferable with the salt)

everything else, totally yes, why not?

Picky eater list?

Looks more like a shopping list to me. Including the absence of cilantro.

Snails are pretty good, but like lobster, the flavor is in the garnish.

No olives, no canned tuna, no bread.


And snails taste like unbreaded calamari--which is to say, bland but not bad by any means.

I was on a strategic reconnaissance exercise in France where my team of four spent a rainy night under poncho hooches inside a woodline adjacent to a residential area. By dawn the rain had stopped. It was still overcast and I had just gotten out of my sleeping bag when a man walked by, turning over leaves and branches with a long stick, while murmuring to himself. He paused for just a moment, looking up to see me standing there in my jungle fatigues, and said "Je cherche les escargots." Then he continued on like I wasn't even there. Serious business!

Sautéed in butter and garlic is the way they ought to be.

I like the claws the best. I haven't cooked lobster in years, but I imagine the boil is the same for blue claw crabs. Something I learned about crawfish is to keep them in fresh water for 3 days so they will purge their shit. If fresh caught and boiled then I have to spice the boil to mask the taste of crawfish shit.

I usually pick the onions off fast food sandwiches and burgers. I sharpen my knives so as to have paper thin slices.
Another is honey mustard, gross stuff.
Miracle Whip. Who thought of this shit?
Snails. I dunno never tried them.
I discovered mushrooms from a neighbor years ago. Love those oyster mushrooms. Purple ones make great tea. Makes me want to lick my wife all over.

All good here. Picky I am not ... at least when it comes to eating.
My list of "Will not eat" primarily contains organs.

I brought some marzipan candies, the uncoated fruit shaped kind, to a family gathering on Christmas day. It was surprising how many people didn't like marzipan. It was fresh product that I ordered right from the maker and I loved it.
