A few days ago, I tried my first mussel. I had been wanting to for ages but the sight of one was too gross.
When I asked before what a mussel tasted like, my Mum said “a mussel tastes like a mussel” and she was right.
The reason I tried it:
I tried it because I was curious, and the more I thought about it, the more curious I grew (to quote the book, ‘Kiss the Cow’).
I would eat a mussel if I was starving, which means I didn’t like it but would eat it if I had to!
