I'm impressed you've tried it.  I haven't (and don't plan to).  But
I'm not sure it proves anything.  Cats and dogs regularly eat lots
of dead, disgusting things which certainly SMELL worse than coolant
(again I haven't tasted...) so perhaps their taste preferences
are just a bit different from ours...

I'll be careful with the green stuff in my cars now, and consider
replacing it with the newer non-tasty versions in the future.
