The first thing I ate were ant larvae spread on crackers, perceived by insect eaters to be a special treat because they're soft-bodied, and without the hard, dry shells of most insects. Unfortunately, they were not a good intro to entomophagy; the larvae were the most skin-crawling thing I ate that night. They had little flavor, and biting into one was like chewing a sphere of salmon roe. Thankfully, I had a martini to wash them down.
