Why would someone eat rare meat or frogs' legs? Or why would someone eat blood sausage? To a lot of people these things are absolutely disgusting, even just the thought of it is repulsive. But some people just like it and find it normal because that's what normal is where they come from.
We're all different, have different tastes, and come from different backgrounds. I'd personally never even try the soup, but hey. To each his own.
No I think you guys are answer the wrong questions, or maybe I should have been more specific, is thr any paticular reason for eatin turtle jelly soup? Like what purpose does it serve? I don't think its nasty and I'm not sayin thr is anything wrong with it, sorry for any confussion
Just like how people eat shark, squid and dog. They think its food. Why would you take a shower? To get clean of course. Same thing to people who eat it. To satisfy your stomach and tongue taste craving:)
Turtle jelly soup is a Chinese dish. They eat it for medicinal purposes, but you should skip this dish cause its messing with turtle numbers. Don't want them to go extinct.
I guess if you grew up with it...like in asia it's normal to eat insects and things we find repulsive. Food is a direct reflection of culture.
i think what she's asking is what are the health benefits non-benefits....? not why peopoe would eat it according to taste and culture
But what's the purpose, it said on this show I'm watchin but I missed it, kids u know, anyways what health benefit does it have?
I ate turtle satay too when I lived in Bali just before it was forbidden to kill the turtle. It tasted just great!!!
haha glad i could somewhat help, but unfortunatly i don't know the acual answer haha ;D
I would eat anything once. But not if its an endangered animal or a danger to me. LOL.
Agreed. We eat frog too here. pig blood sausage... you name it we eat them all LOL
Ding ding ding, and give the girl a prize lol, just kidding, anyways ur right :-)
Its like eating crushed rihno horn... It doesn't really do anything health wise.
It has medicinal properties and its kinda like junk food. Addiciting.
Now I know where not to go when traveling the word... Thanks Sri :D
lol.... I thought because turtle is protected LOL
