Actually I have never heard of testicles refered to as sweetbreads. I've only ever heard them refered to as "prairie oysters", "frys" or just straight up testicles.

Headcheese is another thing where its either so good so as to be sublime or so bad as to make you want to curl up in a fetal position. I'm exaggerating a little, but quality really does vary wildly. I think boars head puts out a head cheese thats just ok.

The German style is far superior to what I've eaten here in the US:

Together or seperately?

I have had a LOT of octopus, but I am starting to actually move away from it. I dont know if it is ethical to eat something that might very well be almost as smart as I am. Thats just the hippy dippy in me speaking though.

Judging something's intelligence by it's relative brain size is silly. Anything that gets caught in a cod fish trap, over and over and over again, can't be that smart.

It does have tasty brains though.

Not so much the size of its brain but what it has proven to be able to do. Like turn dials and pull levers in complex sequence to achieve goals.

Its camo ability alone is amazing, ive seen it match a patterned floor tile as well as learni.g to unscrew the lid on a jar to grt food just by watching it be done by another octopus

What exactly does Octopus taste like (if it can be described) ? And what part do you eat ? You put hot sauce on it or anything ?.......
