Caviar.jpgDoes anybody really like that crap?

It’s farookin’ fish eggs, fer Chrissake. More specifically, the “good stuff” comes from a big-ass fish called a sturgeon. I wanna know who the guy was who first looked at this ugly beast and said, “Hey Vlad, I wonder what its eggs taste like?”

Apparently some people like it enough (or want to pretend to like it enough) to pay $150 for an ounce of disgusting, little black fish eggs. They are, however, cheaper by the pound, which come to you for a mere $2,399.

I’ll take peanut butter on a Ritz any day.


  1. You can leave that off my wishlist, Santa.

  3. Jim, I’ve thought the same thing before. Who the hell decided to eat this stuff? Same goes for lobster, which is OK, but looks like a giant bug. Crab? Love it, but I’m really glad someone else discovered it. It never would have dawned on me to eat one.

  4. LOLLLL! Zackly! Whoinhell decided it would be something to EAT? I’d sooner feed it to the cat.

  5. For the entry-level caviar connoisseur, there is always the option of paddlefish caviar, which goes for only $20/oz.

    What’s a paddlefish?

    Well, they look like this, and you catch them by snagging them with x-large treble hooks weighted down with spark plugs.

    In case you were wondering.

  7. uh, oh… I think I’m in the minority here. Love the stuff. It’s always part of the usual winter holiday food and drink debauchery here at Stately Sad Old Goth Manor. Very tasty on a little slab of toasted thin bread, piled on a glob of sour cream…

  8. Sorry, just not a big fan of eating things that smell like fish.

    Well… MOST things…

  9. never had much use for it. I’ve seen the Florida Crackers rool mullit roe in meal and fry it and eat it like it was good to I suspect it is just a matter of taste-well so is eating choclate cover bugs

  10. I don’t like fish that much anyway, unless it comes with fries and maybe vinegar and is wrapped in newspaper, in which case I love it. Fish eggs? To paraphrase an old David Byrne/Talking Heads lyric, “I know the fish are laughing at us; they don’t even know what a joke is . . . “

  11. Well, I am in the minority here as I do like it and I am not a big fish eater. Wonder what it means that I don’t particularly like fish, but two of my favorite things to eat can taste like fish? Oh well.

    As for the other thread, I remain convinced that a lot of food — esp. gourmet food — was discovered because someone, somewhere, was in seriously desperate straights. That, or in the case of some Japanese delicacies, there were leftovers that someone wanted eaten. “Hey, Joe, I bet if we call this a delicacy and say that only the most refined palates can appreciate it, someone will eat it up.” FYI, “Delicacy of Scallop” is the rubber ring holding the tender meat of the scallop to the shell. If you want the experience, coat a rubber ring in mayo and chew…

  12. I’m more of a cheese and cracker girl myself…

  13. Am with the minority here- I do enjoy the stuff on occasion. I think the Sevruga is better than the Beluga- cheaper too, at $45/oz.

  14. Disgusting!

    [Though I could use some soda right now… And probably throughout this night/morning – It’s Finals Week!]

  15. Good caviar is a delight to me, especially with a little cream cheese and some chives. I’ve put habenero sauce on it, too.

    Bad caviar is just bait. There is a reason aficionados pay the big bucks for the good stuff. Filet Mignon vs green hamburger.

  16. that is so incredibly vile. I bet Trump’s fridge is stocked full of it.

  17. Ok lol why did he put “Stately Sad Old Goth Manor?” Why not just say you like it? I think it’s silly you had to throw that in there. Bravo chap! LOL
