I could not find much on this, but we see Daenerys Targaryen eat a horses heart.

What I want to know what was it really, what was the prop made out out of?

It was made of a gummy bear-like material:

Around 1:50

GoT wiki:

According to actress Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), the prop she used for the stallion's heart was made of gummy bear-like material, which actually tasted awful, so the difficulty with which she seems to be choking it down is actually a genuine physical reaction. It had to be something she could really bite, chew, and swallow, because it would have seemed fake if she was only miming the act of eating a prop without actually consuming pieces of it.

    All that money and they couldn't spring for some cherry flavoring? Giant gummy bears are delicious! Jun 26, 2016 at 16:29
  • @GGMG That would make the acting bit hard

  • @ChristopherPeart No, I believe it matters. She has to show eating the heart of a horse it not like biting into a cherry flavored gummy bear. The reflex of the gag makes it look more natural.
