  • Yes! For the longest time I would drive around and see all these panaderia stores advertising sweet breads and get confused. Bakeries do not sell thymus gland, BTW!

  • Oh goodness! Fortunately I haven't made that mistake, but I could see it happening.

    I did order "blood pudding" while in London, not realizing that it was actual blood. YUCK!!!

  • no- I know what they are _ veal thymus gland and actually live them very much! I did ( when I was way younger) Ordered soft shell crab not knowing what it was and freaked and had them return if for something that would not get up and walk off my plate. I love them now too.
