Had it last night. I was excited for it, but it wasn't as exciting and delicious as I had hoped. While it's possible we got a bad brand, it's removed the excitement for me, and I won't go out of my way to have it again.

There's not a "never had it, would eat it if offered, but otherwise don't really care" option.

I've never had it but I'd like to try it out of curiosity. It seems pretty gimmicky, so I doubt I'd go in with ridiculously high expectations.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

I had 2 good ones and a shitty one. Maybe for Thanksgiving, I will make my own turducken.

I had it last thanksgiving--we bought a "turducken in a box" from the grocery store--all we had to do was to put it in the oven. But it was stuffed with what tasted like paper, and the meat wasn't juicy/tender/whatever.

I then tried it again, this time "home made" at a local Long Island restaurant. I liked it, but my wife who had a few bites wasn't impressed.

I do think, however, that hte excitement was way more than the result.

Had it. As you can imagine, by the time the en and stuffing is cooked through, the duck, and tur is overcooked and dry. Overcooked duck is bad.

That's right; there's not.

It was a little dry, but other than that it was good.
I would like to try this:
