Horse meat in products

I cant say I was shocked when I heard about the new horse meat scandal.  With rising food prices and everyone trying to make a profit I am sure that many other people are cutting corners to make an extra profit.

To be honest the thought of eating horse meat does not disturb me although I would have liked to have a choice.  I suppose if I had the choice I would not choose to eat horse meat.  Its not the thought of eating horse as I have eaten ostrich, venison and wild boar.  I just have never fancied horse.

What is the strangest thing you have eaten and actually enjoyed?
