Just curiosity. I have tried them before, they were a little fishy for my taste. I don't know how many calories they are but I don't know if I'd eat them again. Not really worth the time. Anyone else?

    I love frog legs, but I like them fried.

    Yea, I think they taste a little dirty (like Catfish does) but they were ok. I think everything is good though with enough garlic and butter :)

    I don't care for them. Not much substance and they leave a sickly sweet aftertaste.

    I share the OP's assessment.

    They carry them in stock at my local Krogers. I've always wanted to try them but I hate dealing with bones.

    It's the only thing that keeps me from buying whole raw or rotisserie chicken.

    I always wonder what they do with the rest of the frog...

    They are like a cross between chicken and fish.

    I've had them on a few occasions. I keep thinking I'll like them more than I do - but it always reminds me of a scrawny chicken or an undercooked rabbit. I'll eat them in good humour if I'm in the South or being served them in a French restaurant, but it's always just as a novelty and not because I especially like or crave them.

    I caught this gal barehanded just to show to my 4 year old, but yeah, I like them fried.

    My husband is obsessed with them. I think they're delicious too!
    Here are some buffalo frog legs We got a few weeks ago.

    They serve them a Chinese buffet we go to sometimes, they're really popular, the restaurant can't keep the serving tray filled up fast enough for their guests.
    The few times I was able to snag some, I thought they were really good. They were very lightly battered and fried, though.
    Not what I expected frog to taste like. Like chicken and halibut had a baby or something, maybe?

    I've eaten them in France

    Seemed like a awful lot of effort for very little reward, and what I did get out of it was fairly bland and unsatisfying

    I prefer steak

    I've tried lots of different foods, including frog's legs. The only thing I wouldn't have again is sheep's eyes (they stink!)

    Current 'odd' food fave is kangaroo steak, although I'm having ostrich steak tonight for the first time.

    I had them on holiday in France once when I was a kid, I thought they were pretty bland tasting and was quite freaked out by the thought that I was eating frogs, the happy, hoppy little things I'd seen living in my garden pond.

    Had ostrich for the first time the other week - it was lovely. Enjoy

    Not very interested in them, to be honest.

    Have you heard of Spam? Or maybe they end up in chocolate cakes ;)
