Oh gosh, I’ve no idea but I have heard people say we would taste salty. I’ve been asked if I could eat fellow humans if it were a matter of life and death. I know I could not but my husband thinks he could.

What we need are some proper cannibals to provide feedback.
A case from a journalist traveling West Africa about 100 years ago provides this interesting take:
“It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef. It was very definitely like that, and it was not like any other meat I had ever tasted. It was so nearly like good, fully developed veal that I think no person with a palate of ordinary, normal sensitiveness could distinguish it from veal. It was mild, good meat with no other sharply defined or highly characteristic taste such as for instance, goat, high game, and pork have.”

And there you have it.

It’s old nickname is “long pork”. In the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” it made for tasty barbecue

@Hawaii_Jake A good reason why I am plant based too.

@SnipSnip It’s only salty if not bled properly. If prepared in a kosher/halal manner, the meat is not as salty.

I taste like butterscotch – but that’s raw, with no seasoning.

I just had chicken wings. They were perfect and delicious.

Ewwww. Veal is nasty, too.
I wonder what dog meat tastes like? Some cultures apparently have a whole industry with dogs and hoeses.

They don’t call it “long pork” for nothing.

Would you rather eat a vegetarian or an omnivore?

@Dutchess_III Hippies give me gas.

@Dutchess_III Not sure. . .a census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti, but don’t know if he was vegetarian, vegan, or an omnivore. C’mon, you had to expect that, right?

The thing is we vegetarians, like cows. Not carnivores like lions.
