    Yucky!!! I remember my mum and my aunties tucking into them whenever we came up to the NE. They smell foul and they look like like snots with a scab on the end!!!!!

    Have never been able to get one as far as my mouth to see what they taste like though

    I had no idea a winkle was a cockle, both words have got me chuckling like a school kid though! Immaturity for the win!

    I do love me some seafood though! And it's all free! :D

    As a veggie I don't eat either of them, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that was having a schoolgirl snigger at the words "winkle" and "cockle" lol!

    I really should know better by my age! :)

    Who names these things? It can't be coincidence that they both sound rude?

    Not tried them and after the snot description I don't think I want to either thanks!

    Think a winkle and a cockle are different - am sure cockles are bigger

    And yes the names are quite rude sounding!!!

    Cockles are different to winkles (he he). winkles are in a little round shell, like a tiny snail, you have to pick them out with a pin. You will probobly think I'm really wierd but I have always thought that cockles look like tiny seagulls as they have a little yellow beak shaped thing.
    God I'm so weird.
    I used to love winkles as a kid but I think its just the way they look now that puts me off, when you pick them out of the shell they do really remind me of bogies.
    I'll have to try them again when I go to the seaside.
