Never had scrapple, nor heard of it, so I had to look it up. Wikipedia says it's a popular rural food in the Atlantic states, and can be found in supermarkets.

Next time I am to the east coast, will be sure to try some. Seems a lot more appetizing than squirrel brains, mad or sane.

Well, you just missed the big festival up the road about 30 miles. Apple Scrapple Festival - Bridgeville, Delaware

I'd probably go with scrapple, myself. I've eaten it and survived. But I'm with Brewer, boil up some beans.

Oh, humans can eat a lot of stuff and survive. The question is whether one would enjoy the "stuff", and that is highly subjective. Scrapple has lots of lard, and should be as popular as bacon, no?

FIL/MIL loved it. They used it as a side dish with breakfast, like sausage. I always eat anything someone cooked for me so had to try it, not bad. Maybe not as great as fish eggs, but not bad.

That is how I have always had it in PA.
Used as a fried breakfast meat, along with sausage and bacon!

It seems that a federal court has overturned California's ban on foie gras.

experts didn’t expect the ban to be overturned, so there weren’t crates of the stuff in refrigerated trucks lined up at the border.

Yup that was a week or so ago actually. Some of the high end places in SF got FG flown in the next day...

I've never had it so I don't know what the attraction is...I guess it tastes good, though I had Caviar once and it was meh so don't know
