Would You Eat Bugs?

Out of all of my friends, I'm probably the one who will eat anything once, actually make that twice (I always have to make sure my first opinion was right). Anyways, I ran across this list of 32 Edible Insect Foods You Can Buy Online and had to question whether or not I would eat these. Okay, who am I kidding, that questioning lasted about 3 seconds, of course I would try them. There are a few on the list that I want to try (Tom Yum Flavored Bamboo Worms anyone?).



Admitting that makes me wonder if this is some kind of new low? I'm almost embarrassed by myself, first I admit I've never eaten at any of the top 50 restaurants in the world and then I say I'd be willing to try all of these bugs. I should also mention that me trying all 32 of these edible bugs is probably more likely than me eating at 32 of those restaurants. But I digress...


The edible bug list includes a few extraordinary things like Roasted Pregnant Crickets and Extra Hot Crushed Giant Bug Paste (both of which can be found online at Thailand Unique), as well as a few more "tame" items such as Giant Toasted Ants (which apparently taste something like bacon) and Chocolate Covered Scorpions, or Scorpion Amber Candy. You can check out the whole list at Senselist.


What do you guys think, would you try any of these?

I don't think I would because I am vegetarian, but they are commonly eaten in other countries and are a good source of protein. I don't think it is any different than eating shrimp, they are kind of like insects.

I've always said I'd try anything ... once. But I draw the line at bugs. Or even Escargo. I'll eat (and have) squid, octopus, Cow Tongue or Stomach ... but bugs? No way. I'll even try brains before that .... ewwwww, I'm so grossed out now.

Sorry, I can't do it. Bugs creep me out. I don't even like to step on them so I can't imagine putting them in my mouth unless it's under dire circumstances.

I consider myself to be a pretty brave eater. I love to dine on the "nasty bits" of animals (tripe, intestines, offal, etc.). But I just don't think I could bring myself to do the whole bug thing. Even if they were drenched in chocolate.

There's a list of things I'm not interested in eating... and bugs make the list.

my boyfriend took an entomology lab/class at school and during his finals his prof made everyone sugar cookies with little mealworms in it. anyways, i was sorta disappointed bc they didn't really taste like anything, more like crunchy little thin nuts but still the cookies were delicious. maybe i'll get my hands on a fat grub one day, lol. oh and it's called Entomophagy. the eating of bugs.

I know to many they may think gross. But we in western society often eat things many would say gross too. So unless one tried something you cant know for sure. After watching Bizarre Food the show , and my brother owning a book on many style like this. I would try it. If only once, I would
