I made chicken soup. Wife said that it kicked azz.
Octopus, it all depends on how it's made.Bought some octopus to try. It's okay but I doubt I will buy it again.
No it doesn't taste like chicken.
I bought 4 cactus pears to try also. It is a mild sweet taste. The seeds are hard like pebbles so scoop them out with a spoon and discard them.
