Got a taste for testicles You will have a Ball

Rocky Mountain oysters, as they're referred to elsewhere, are nothing to blush about. They are good eatin' for those with old-fashioned pallets and a sense of culinary efficiency.

Those who've tried them describe them as crunchy on the outside, soft and warm on the inside.
