Not to wild's expert survivalist Bear Grylls. BG eats snails alive when the going gets tough. What would you do out in the wilderness having nothing to eat but a couple of tasty fat snails in sight? You wouldn't pass up such a morsel, would you?

Yes, I have eaten escargot, it was served in a butter and cognac sauce, and was very good until I found out what it was. Later, after my stomach calmed down, I decided that it really was good, but I can not afford escargot as a staple, and have not had it since, but I would eat "snails" again if I have the opportunity.

Ravenna,

I think you should try something like this for your second sentence; "I have never eaten anything like snails, and I'm sure I will never will!"

The change is partly; grammar, contex, and style.

I hope you can make sense of this.

Hi!

No way! I think (actually, I'm sure) that I will never eat snails!
The consistency should be horrible! I don't know how I say: "muito mole" ou "me dá aflição".
I think that I will "talk to the toilet" (I don't know if "vaso sanitário" is toilet) if I eat this.

Kisses,
Dany

Dany,

I have never heard the expression "talk to the toilet" but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT as a substitute for regurgitate, vomit, throw up or puke (all synonyms in decending order of politenesss).

I would like to see the third sentence read "I think that I would talk to the toilet."

No, I have never eaten snails. Although its a very strange dish I would try one day if I had chance to.
In my opinion, it's all cultural. For example, in China , they are used to eating dogs and in Philippines they eat "Balut egg" which is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.
