    They are so delicious but you really do have to be in the mood for them. They taste so much better then any turkey leg I've ever cooked.

    This was actually on my list of foods to try last week when we were in Disneyland, but we never had time. I'm actually relieved. When I saw people walking around with them, they didn't look as appealing as I thought they would anyway.

    People look like Neanderthals when they're eating them.

    I don't like the look of them. They are so red. I always think of turkey meat as more white. I know legs are a darker meat, but they look uncooked to me inside.

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    My son loves turkey legs, but hasn't had them at DL. He used to get them when we were at the Reno Air Races. When DH & I went to DL a while ago he begged us to buy one and bring it home for him. Food safety forbade that, but he wore his Turkey Leg tshirt with true pride & his turkey leg air freshener (long 'dead') is still hanging from his car mirror.

    I haven't had one (yet). They just look so huge & it's not like you can stick it in your purse 'to finish later'. Then someone posted on MC (I think it was MC) that they take bread in and buy a leg and pull it apart to make sandwiches & share. I'm thinking of suggesting that to BFF next month. We usually pack sandwiches in anyway. I'll need to confirm that they're still gluten free, though.

    I have to say I've never tried the ones at the park, the wife thinks everyone eating them looks like cave people or barbarians! True, not the most visually appealing food at the park but they smell soo good.

    The meat is smoked and that's why the color is darkened. Plus because of how salty they are it's likely marinated quite a bit too.

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    I've heard from many people, including a few CMS, that they are really emu legs. Turkey legs are not that big. Of course, this could just be a simple rumor...

    I have never eaten a turkey leg at Disneyland.

    How much does one cost?

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    I had one at the OC Fair one time, and it was good and I was cool for the first few bites. But once the tendons started showing, iiiiich...I was done at that point.

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    I don't hate them but I can live without them. They're ok once in awhile. That being said, what Busch Gardens does to give them a holiday spin during Christmas Town (they do them with an orange/cranberry glaze) is something I definitely need to try.

    Just a rumor - I've heard ostrich, too.
    The NYT article says:
    "Just about everyone who comes into contact with these legs seems to have two questions: Are these really from turkeys? If so — if they’re not emu or ostrich, two urban myths — then why are they so big?
    People are accustomed to Thanksgiving turkeys, which are female birds, or hens; the males, called toms, are bigger — up to 50 pounds apiece — and their legs are the ones that Disney serves, said Keith M. Williams, a vice president at the National Turkey Federation, an industry trade group."


    An article in the Orlando Sentinel says:
    For the record, Robert Adams, executive chef at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom confirms the turkey legs are not made of emu. "We hear that all the time," he says. "They're real turkeys. It's what they are."

    A CM friend of mine claims they are not turkey or any other kind of bird, but a mix of different meats formed to look like turkey, but I don't know where he got that information (keep meaning to ask).

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    Turkeys an be very big. You may only know of what fits in your fridge or oven or what is need at our Thanks Giving dinner.

    I knew someone who raised turkeys as a hobby in their yard. From spring chick to thanksgiving they gained over 50 pounds any sometimes a lot more.

    These giant turkey legs aren't served everywhere, just amusement parks and state fairs. So in low volume production they can easily be raised to be big and made in to sandwich meats and legs.

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    The turkey legs are awesome! My favorite part is sharing it with my family. But one thing I gotta say, and people are probably gonna gasp at this, I've never had a Disney churro. Don't worry, I'm planning to get one on my next visit. But are they good as people say they are?
