I never tried one, are they any good or do you need to be seriously stoned with life threatening munchies to eat these oddballs?

      I've eaten them. Let me amend that. I've eaten a few bites of one. They are disgusting things that have absolutely no place on any bar next to the pickled eggs.

        Real men eat the pickled pigs feet when they are present. They are really good, accompanied by many beers.

          I'm not a real man and don't drink at bars, but do like pickled pigs' feet, as my Grandma used to make her own when they butchered and anything Grandma made, was good. There are a few things I refuse to even try but very few. Pickled pigs' feet and head cheese (souse, Grandma-made) are two sort of weird things that I do really like.

          I don't care for wild game nor eggs, so I can empathize with anyone who doesn't like something that I like. Aren't different tastes strange?

            I use to eat them on occasion but prefered the hocks. I haven't seen them on a bar back in years though, even some of the dives that I've been known to frequent. Around here Roger's was a popular brand. Chow Jim

              My father liked pickled pigs feet, and when he got the urge, actually would cook up a batch.

              Not many things I don't like, but pickled pigs feet are high up on that list.

                Grew up eating Pickled Pigs Feet, and still enjoy them today.

                Homemade are best but I even like the jars of Hormel Pigs Feet available in any grocery store.

                  I remember watching my grandfather eat those while I was growing up. I am somewhat adventurous about trying different foods, but I have never tried them. If the occasion came up, maybe, but I sure won't go seek them out!

                    Brain sandwiches, mountain oysters, pigs feet, chitlins, most commercial scrapple, head cheese/souse, blood sausage

                    anything in a jar that others have already fished around in...

                    ....a few of the things I'll pass on...

                        If you like pickled pigs feet you will love pickled lambs tongue
                        They are hard to find outside of the northeast
