I said neither, although clams are really good. I prefer lobster or chilean sea bass, which I almost never get to eat...expensive taste, I guess...

I dont like the way clams can taste "gritty" I love octopus if it is prepared right.

Both! The octopus has to be cooked properly or else it turns rubbery. We eat so much seafood, I can't imagine someone not liking it! Maybe it's because we're Italian, I don't know.

Octopus is delicious if cooked right.Clams, however, I can't stand. I used to love clam chowder, but after we dissected clams one day in biology, I got all grossed out knowing exactly what all the little bits were, and I haven't been able to stomach it since.

Rain Moon: Actually the clams were not cooked in a tomato based sauce at all. The red color comes from Pimenton a form of Spanish hot paprika...and they were quite delicious!

Of the two, I prefer clams, although fried baby octopus is a wonderful (if slightly guilty feeling provoking) treat.

I've had octopus (I tried on my vacation! btw, i love going new places and trying local cuisine...it was in puerto rico, and it was a spanish food (can't remember the name) with a cron type cake with this octopus on top) anyway, it was SO TOUGH! I would chew and chew and chew and nothing would happen haha. Tasted good, but I would chose clams over it for this reason.

I think I'd eat clams before octopus, but you can make almost anything palatable with the right techniques.
