We used everything but the squeal.
Mostly eaten, but leather & bristles were used, also -- albeit not eaten.
Check out old-time recipes for souse, brawn, or head cheese and/or for scrapple.
My local Chinese Restaurant has a American-Chinese menu and a real Chinese menu. I often eat one of the three different chitterlings dishes off the real Chinese menu. Very similar to how we cooked them when I was a kid.
or anything else that list "x" animal's "parts" in the ingredients on the label.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

There are many regional items sole by WalMart here in the US. We have grits at the WalMarts here but I think you would have a hard time finding them in New Hampshire.
The "news media" has ceased being the watch dog of the people and has become the apologist for an irresponsible government.
It being China, I noticed a large lack of ammo!

There are alot more things than that ... LOL. The one's I was in , have numerous fish tanks with live fish of all kinds... most of which I had never seen in my life and had no clue what they were. The have squid, eel, octopus, and those sea cucumbers (leach), shark fins, etc. as well.
Ox tail, is almost mandatory if you eat anywhere. They consider them necessary for men to keep their strength and the women happy. If you don't eat it, the women waitresses will be demanding you eat it.
The Walmarts also have self-service pharmacies, walk right in and in half the pharmacy you can buy whatever medication, anitbiotic or other drug you need. They have a 'trained' person to advise you. No prescriptions are required for any of it, as there are not really doctors around anyway. The other half, is natural remedies, teas, etc. And everywhere you go is sea cucumbers..... to keep low cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. They are a sea leach.
Walmarts also have 'tea areas' to taste and try different teas before you buy them. It is rather ceremonial, it is not grab one and try it out. You can buy CD's, DVD's , etc. either in the racks for the knock-offs, or the legite versions.
I thought it ironic, that most Chinese I worked with there, loved to go to Korean restaurants.
What I liked the most, was trying to get a little closer each day (where we worked) to the military guards and getting a better look at their AK's. They were nice. One day, ended up with one rd chambered and in my face.... but that was not due to anything I did and he got chewed out for it, but .... it was uncomfortable having the end of the barrel 6 " from my face, loaded and ready, him nervous and his finger on the trigger while screaming and yelling in Chinese. That was not quite the view of the AK I was looking for.
