Any freepers actually eaten these? I’m a big fan of odd food. But the thought just makes me sore. :o)
We have the Turkey Testicle Festival in Byron, Illinois but I’ve never had the balls to try them.
I go to look at all the custom bikes.

Growing up in North Texas, the spring roundup at the Roller Ranch would have us catching the young bull calves and castrating, vaccinating, branding, and deworming them. We would collect the testicles in buckets and clean and refrigerate them. After a couple of days work, we would have quite a few of them and carry them to the Pioneer Restaurant #3 in Wichita Falls and they would deep fry them in batter and we would have them with french fries and beer. They were tasty and most of us looked forward to the yearly festival. Sure miss the good old days.
I never have, but have some hunting buddies who happened to be in the Rockies at the time the ranchers were castrating bulls, and the menu that evening featured mountain oysters. Sliced thin and fried, they were reportedly a decent meal.

They sell ‘em in some of the fanciest steak houses in Ft. Worth, Texas. Just order the calf fries.

Yes! I could have cried when the only local restaurant that served them (on Friday—’fish [LOL] day’—only) was bought out & turned into a casino with just fast food.

You bet. Properly prepared, “calf fries” (another euphemism for bull nuts) are great!
There’s a restaurant in Austin that serves “lamb fries”. Those are my personal favorite.
And I’ve had beef pecker in “hot pot” in Taiwan. That I could take or leave.
Oh yeah, and “shirako” — a kind of sushi. I’ll let you look that one up yourself.
