    Have you ever eaten a meal and then discovered what you ate is not what you thought it was? (e.g., my mother once served us rabbit and told us kids it was chicken)

    As a vegetarian I often discover that chicken stock has been added to so-called vegetarian soups and sauces especially in Italian restaurants.

    My kids would have a field day with this question. I served them all kinds of foods when they were growing up, and each time I just told them it was chicken! As teens, they freaked out and stopped eating Caesar salad when they discovered there were anchovies in the dressing!

    You're lucky you've only eaten a rabbit. I've eaten a frog.

    Yes, I have! My mother has passed off rabbit and tortoise meat as chicken, when I was a kid. Apart from the childhood experience, I ate baby octopus in Bangkok and only realised what it was when I asked the waiter why the fish was so chewy..LOL

    Where I live, in Sardinia, we usually eat the testicles of fried pork. I really disgust. However once I have brought a dish with these fried slices, saying that it was rabbit meat. Just after lunch I was informed that what I had eaten the testicles of a pig ... Bleah!

    My mom did the same thing to me when we were kids. I was pretty much a vegetarian at the time but would occasionally eat chicken. My dad brought a deer home from a hunting trip and she served it in a stew and told me it was chicken. I was NOT happy when I found out, but I forgave her.
