They’re on my wish list of things to try.  I ordered them once in a restaurant - or thought I did; got my French mixed up and accidentally ordered andouillette instead! 🤮

Poor you, andouillette is certainly an acquired taste (or rather smell!), I can eat most things but I find them difficult .I think someone who ordered andouillette and ended up with escargot would have been far happier.

I guess we will just have to wait until Francois the patron of "Charcuterie des Entrailles" develops a vegan version - about as much chance as IanN being able to buy and get his vegan black pudding past the douanes!
