snailwire.jpgEver wonder where your favorite frog palaces source their delicious escargot? Today, Charlotte Calmels of Bibou shot out a Tweet giving props to @TheSnailMan, whom she credits with the amazing product they serve on a nightly basis. The website is a fun read, referring to their little slimy guys as "Land Lobsters" and the "Kobe Beef of Snails." The species is officially called Helix Pomatia Linne and are raised in Burgundy. You'll be happy to know there's only 60 calories in 16 snails, which is one 3 oz. serving. [Twitter]
