Would You Eat This Soup?


Perhaps, if I didn't tell you what was in this soup, you would gladly gobble it up. It looks appetizing and fragrant and was one of the best dishes Chubby Hubby ate on a recent trip to Bhutan.

However, when you find out the main ingredient is fried hornets, you might be a little disgusted. The hornets are stir fried with garlic, ginger, and shallots.

I would take a bite, but it would be pretty hard to swallow knowing I was eating fried bugs. How about you? Would you eat this hornet soup?

I would eat it. Insects are an amazing and abundant source of proteins and nutrients, Cultures all over the world regularly eat stuff like this, its an everyday occurence. Live a little. I am sure they would find our "enriched bleached out, salt laden" crap we eat to be just as unappetizing

I probably would.. just for the experience. I think hornets would be OK because they're crunchy. I just couldn't do anything too squishy. Ew.

I'm not into adventurous food eating. So, no, I wouldn't try it even if I ate meat/bugs/whatever. Also, as a vegetarian, I don't eat anything unless I know what's in it first.

That "soup" looks like something one of my cats threw up :P

I saw some pretty strange (to me) foods in Vietnam, but being a vegetarian I didn't partake. I have no objection though, I'm sure they think Twinkies are cringeworthy. It's all about perspective

I think I'd try it once. I'm pretty adventurous with food, I've eaten a lot of weird stuff (fried bugs from Thailand, fried frogs, etc.) but I must say, that soup doesn't look appetizing at all. :/

That soup looks very interesting but I don't think I would eat it.

I hate bugs and would never eat any! As well, I'm not keen on much seafood, but one I refuse to eat is shrimp because they are sea bugs!!!

That depends. Is there a sauce involved? Either an au jou or just plain old beer? ;)

I would like to say "yes". I think if it was just bugs soup (grasshoppers, ants, etc), I could do it. But hornets?!?! That is simply too frightening. I would only try it if I saw someone else eat it safely first.
