  • They taste like spam, apparently (or perhaps apocryphally) -
    "... the former cannibals of Oceania now feast on Spam because Spam came the nearest to approximating the porky taste of human flesh - or `Long pig' as they called a cooked human being in much of Melanesia. It was a fact that the people-eaters of the Pacific had all evolved, or perhaps degenerated, into Spam-eaters. And in the absence of Spam they settled for corned beef, which also had a corpsy flavor."

  • Humans are edible. In my psychology class we studied a disease called Kuru, found only in one group of people known for eating the brains of their dead relatives in a funeral ritual, and the effects of that basically simulated mad cow disease, suggesting that it can have side effects.

  • Some places it's believed that eating human flesh will turn you into a skinwalker, so it's quite a risk to take.

  • Excuse me but I'd rather not turn into a wendigo.

  • Edible: yes.

    Side effects: not that I know of, but it would probably be mentally damaging for most people.

    Taste: don't know and don't want to

    Would I eat another human being?
    No.

  • I mean I'm sure human meat is edible and it probably would taste good if you didn't know it was human. Side effects? I guess they would be mild insanity and cannibalism. These are people's loved ones so it would imply a complete lack of empathy if you can't imagine what it would be like for your loved ones to be seasoned, cooked, and eaten. If you would be okay with that I don't know what else to say.

  • Yes.
    It's said that human taste like pork. Cannibalism aside. It seems that we have an ongoing trend of people cooking up placenta and serving it as some sort of newfangled delicacy.

  • Only that you're curious about that shows already that you're sick in your mind.

    Im so creeped out about people like you.
    Go to a psychologist and tell him about it.
    Tell him that you're curious.
    He will DEFINETLY help you.

  • Are we edible? We are made of meat. That's a yes.
    Side effects: Look into Kuru and CJD.
    Taste: Pork supposedly. I can deffinatly agree that human meat has a similar density and cuts like pork.

  • Though we apparently taste like veil, you'll develop the shakes and become progressively sicker from eating human meat.
