If it came out of the sea chances are I'll eat it. 
If it's in a shell chances are I love it.

I have the palate of a five-year-old. I can't handle oysters.

I'm not wealthy enough for such exotic delicacies.

Nope. I finally built up the bravery to try one this summer and bleeeergh. Not great. I'm sure it's an acquired taste. It's odd cause I eat other seafood like some kind of sea-fiend.

Taste and texture are both unappealing to me.

I don't know, do you like eating snot?

The texture when they're raw is too much for me. I prefer 'em steamed, then put it it on a saltine with some horseradish and cocktail sauce and I'm good to go.

Deep-fried oysters and oyster omelettes are the best seafood.

Not raw ones. You pay a premium for a dish where the advice is to swallow it down whole - presumably so you don't taste it. If you do taste it, then you end up with a mouthful of snot that tastes salty and a little fishy. They should be paying you for swallowing that ...

Taste like seawater to me. They're all right. I'll eat one if offered.

Yep, first time I had em raw I was probably 6. Grew up a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay though, so it's more of a thing here.

Had a raw one in Paris once, not a fan of the sea water taste.

I used to hate them. Turns out I was eating shitty oysters. Currently I really like them.

I wouldnt eat like 12 in a row. I'd say 4-5 is my limit.

@ProfessorEss: Ditto. Mussels cooked in a white wine mix is heaven.
