Who'd want to eat bugs?! Yuck! Well apparently people do. Ever heard of Mopane worms? Witchety Grubs? Yeah well people eat those and many more.
Has the world gone mad? Nah, at least not the whole world....XD
"WAITER, THERE'S A FLY IN MY SOUP!"
Entomophagy - The eating of insects. There are over 1,400-recorded species of
Most ants and ant larvae are edible and tasty (according to Entomophagy
enthusiasts). Black ants can be eaten raw, whereas fire ants are not considered
to be edible. The formic acid, which gives ants a vinegar flavor, mostly
disappears when they are boiled. In Thailand, ant juice is sometimes substituted
when recipes call for lemon.
Larger ants can be squeezed onto your fresh wild salad. Both the adults and larvae of cicadas, Japanese beetles, June bugs and floor beetles are edible.
Sounds gross right? Yeah well I remember watching some program on TV ( think it was a cooking show ) and these people ate ants in a salad or something. Don't really remember too much.....
.....which is probably good for my sanity. XD So anyway how's your stomach feeling? >:) You should be thankful that I don't have any videos of people eating these things......yet. What's also edible you ask? Well I'm glad you did:
I'll stop now but all of these are indeed edible......at least certain species are. The first three are mentioned in video that I have somewhere in this house.
The last 2 were in a magazine. I will try and find proof of this elsewhere as I'm pretty sure that the magazine is long gone. But the guy that ate them is crazy.
But if course if you're on a stranded deserted island you have no choice, apparently grasshoppers are full of protein.....
......isn't that great kids? Yeah I didn't think so but would I lie to you? Google it.
