Pigs Lips

A couple announcements real quick:

1) I've received about 15 pictures for the November Shirt Giveaway and want more!  Thanksgiving is the meal of all meals, so send in those pictures for a chance to win a free Greg's Gourmet t-shirt!

2) I'm happy to introduce a new feature to the site: the Dictionary!  It includes phrases and terms frequently used that new readers may not understand.  Give it a quick look-over!

I've been trying a lot of new foods since I launched this blog.  Swordfish.  Taco Yucky.  Yogurt Soda.  But now it seems we're starting to slip into the realm of Man vs. Wild where I'll put any disgusting food item into my mouth. Enter the pigs lips.  Bone Crusher gave me a jar of Pickled Pigs Lips.  Why?  Because clearly she sees a jar of pigs lips and is reminded of Greg's Gourmet.  I told a bunch of people about them; "I've got pigs lips, wanna try some?" "What are pigs lips?" "Lips of a pig."  It's one of those items that's so bizarre that no one really believes it until they see it.

Anyway, Josh in Japan and LandonWhereBrandon agreed to partake in the taste testing and we got it all on video.  Check it out:

While these things look disgusting, they really didn't taste as bad as you may think, but that's not saying much. The texture is weird, like Joaquin Phoenix pretending to retire to be a rapper weird.  The taste is overpowered by vinegar and it sticks to your hands and dwells in your breath.  I would like to meet the people who regularly snack on this stuff.  They probably smell like the equivalent of Pauly Shore's career.

Looks like a regurgitated lamb heart which probably tastes exactly the same

I still have nearly a full jar of these left, so if you're interested in trying one, let me know.  I'm not sure why you would want to, but just in case, the offer is there.  Maybe just to say that you've tried pigs lips. 

Big Gulp

Maybe I could fool somebody into believing this is really fruit punch...

An interesting experience.  Next I'll need to try pig snout which, as creepy as it is, does exist

Thanks for reading!
