“Snails are just a vehicle for garlic and butter”

Many people believe that snails don’t taste that great, but are merely an excuse for eating garlic and butter.

Only occasionally divine” was posted on Twitter by Y Lee on November 8, 2009. “Snails are essentially a vehicle for inhaling vast quantities of garlic and butter!” was posted on Twitter by MAKE Night Markets on July 9, 2011.

@lisapease That’s hilarious! Then again, I only eat escargots because they’re good vehicle for garlic butter, and snails are light on carbs!

Snails are SO neutral in flavour - they’re just a great vehicle for garlic & parsley butter

Nothing would get me to eat snails. Not even the threat of dying a horribly slow death by starvation… #masterchefau

Snails are merely a slightly chewy vehicle for garlic and butter. Go for it.

Snails are the ideal vehicle for eating straight garlic butter. Perfection. Smiling face with halo
