Why don't you eat a frog?

If you do, why? I just find it curious why one finds frog delectable, while another may find it disgusting.

No. I don't eat frogs. I find it cruel. I was told that frog leg is the most delicious part. I tried once and I find that no different with chicken. The cruel thing is how they cook frogs. They don't just kill the frog to cook them. They cut off the frog legs and throw the frogs back to where they find them. This is what I heard from a number of friends. The "They" mentioned is the people who eat or sell or cook frogs. And I hear this about a few years ago. So I am not sure if this is still true now. Out of protest, me and some of my friends doesn't eat frog related food or dishes. We hope this would help decrease the number of forgs being killed cruelly. At least that is a small part we thought of. I still don't eat frogs now no matter what.

I see.. Thanks for your comment.. I do hope there is no such cruelty in the world. Sorry to ask, but why vegetarian? Health reasons? Or religious?

At first I find it so yucky that people eat frogs. One time we had our dinner at an exotic restaurant. My ex girlfriend ask me what I want for dinner then I told her to order baby chicken. I don't know what went into her head. I went to the comfort room after I ordered and then she went to the counter to change the order. She changed it with fried frog legs! The restaurant has dim lights so I was not able to see clearly the shape of the frog legs and so I really thought it was chicken. It smelled so good that I ate almost everything. I was really slurping and savoring every bite. Ahaha! It taste like chicken. I can't tell the difference. Well, maybe I can if the lights were not dim. Ahaha! After we have consumed all of the sumptuous meal, she told me "Baby, it's not baby chicken. You just ate frogs." I was really shocked that I was not able to drink water afterward. I was really very quiet. Ahahaha! But I swear it really tsate so good but I am not planning to eat frogs again. I don't know, I find it so disgusting...

yeah..but normally they fry the legs and once I really got tricked by this because they actually gave them a normal name on the menu like (little chick legs) or something like that...the name sounded like chicken but they were not chicken. My long term experience with eating chicken actually payed off when I ripped open one of those things and I figured out they did non look like chicken legs. no matter how young the chickens were...so they told me they were frog and not chicken I put them off despite everyone around me saying they tasted great. It's funny how people simplify things by saying "they taste like chicken" yeah right!

I find it weird to eat a frog , its because I am not used to it.I have many frogs at home which are called american frogs but cannot be eaten or could be meat. Unlike the small ones in the river they are the one that could be aeten by some people who are used to eat that meat. I cannot understand to see it if I know that is a frog I will never eat it. Beacuse I also afraid of it If I can see it in our house.

Frog meat is not that bad. The only part that's eatable are the legs ( I guess because they're the only muscular part of a frog). Even though I'm not a meat fan, it's way healthier than eating red meat or even chicken and turkey. And it tastes like chicken as some would say :D

Yeah, well if you watch a frog closely, it's muscles are only on the legs, the rest is just skin and bones, and probably some fat on the sides. So not much to eat there :P

Thanks for the comic relief, Gesusdid! I guess it would really be hard to understand such a practice, especially if you're not accustomed to it, but I suggest you read earlier posts here, if you haven't yet, to at least have a sense of why others find it okay to eat frogs. Stay positive and Happy myLotting!

I have eaten frogs when I was a kid. We are not supposed to eat all kind of frogs. A particular kind of frogs, which are green in color are eaten in my part of country. I had a problem with breething, frong meat is good to cure breathing problems - wheezing. I also used to eat bat and tortoise meat which is also good for breathing problems.

Sounds strange. To admit frankly, this is for the first time I have heard that Frogs and tortoise are eatable. I too have wheezing but i am a vegetarian by diet and i used to follow strict vegetarian diet which successfully subdued my Wheezing problem and nowadays I never have the problem of getting troubled by wheezing. Infact, i never feel that I have wheezing. But anyways, thanks for providing me with a valuable news. I'll check out about the medicational value of the Frog's meat. Have a great day.

Do you know, though, if there's adobong frog or tinolang frog, jane? If there are, have you tried such dishes? If there are none, on the other hand, apart from fried frog, what other frog dish have you tried, if any? Thanks a lot and Happy myLotting!

I have never eaten a frog.Each year in summer,there are large amount of frogs in our village.They eat injurious insects in the daytime and sing their songs at night.They have green skin ,looking beautiful.They are a litte clumsy and a little cute.I hate those people who eat wild frogs.

How well do they sing? What kinds of songs do they sing? I'm sure many frog lovers will trek to your village to look for the "large amount of frogs" in there, and they'll surely have a nice treat. Kidding aside, though, do you hate only "those people who eat wild frogs" or also those who eat frogs that aren't wild? If only those who eat wild frogs, why, if I may ask? Thanks a lot for your fun post and Happy myLotting!

In some countries like China, I think they will eat frogs, here in India, people eat goat, hen etc. I prefer vegetarian to non-vegetarian, then all the creatures will be saved. What right is there fo us to destroy them when we are not their creators.

I haven't ever eaten one, but I might try it if someone who knew how to prepare it offered it to me. I think that some people may find it disgusting because it looks kind of strange and probably because it is a slimy creature. I wonder if it would taste kind of fishy. If so I would definitely hate it because I hate fish and most seafood. And it would definitely depend on the smell. If something smells weird I'm not going to want to put it in my mouth. lol. These sort of things mostly just depend on our culture and upbringing. I'm willing to try most anything once though. I think it's fun to be a little daring and try new things. Have you ever eaten it and if so, did you like it?

Hello friend, I do not eat frog because here on Indian streets, you can find them gloating about on the streets in the mud, in rainy season. They are just so disgusting here. However, I know that in foreign countries they do eat frogs but there you don't get so dirty frogs. There frogs are properly cooked up and raised up for the purpose of eating. It's all in the culture.

Frog legs are an interesting taste but I guess you can't say if you never tried them. That is my theory you have to try something before you decided that it is disgusting. For discussions sake I love snails.....

I don't eat frog as well. I just can't imagine eating frogs when I can see them most of the time jumping or crawling in the fields or even in the streets on rainy days. I don't know but really I don't have the appetite of eating frogs.
