    Alligator is yummy!!!!!  I have eaten alligator quite a few times.  If it is cooked correctly, it is tender and wonderful!!!  To me, it doesn't taste like chicken, but has a taste all its own.  Mmmm....making my mouth water just to think about it!!!

    Tasted Like Pond Scum

    I had Alligator at a state fair in Washington State. They advertised it as "Delicious! Tastes Just Like Chicken!". Well, even after having several pre-alligator alcoholic beverages it tasted like crap! After that no matter how much I drank I couldn't wash the taste...
