Would You Eat This Grasshopper Snack?

The blogger behind Dish a Day actually chased down a mobile snack shack in order to get this grasshopper snack. And according the folks at, only 20 percent of the folks on the planet don't eat insects. Having said that, I want to know: Would you eat these grasshoppers? Being part of the I'll try anything once club — not to mention I've already tried a scorpion — I think I'd have to say yes. How about you?

I would totally eat these. Americans have no idea how many bugs they eat on a daily basis, if you read the FDA Defect action level handbook, which gives the amount of "extra" bits aloud in our foods you will see terms such as Rodent Filth, Insect Fragments, Mold, Rodent Hairs, beetle eggs or sacs, mammalian excreta , rot, maggots...... mmmm yummy

I'll try anything...especially if I'm travelling. I think the best way to experience a different culture is through its food.

Disgusting. Cruel. There's a reason I'm a vegetarian.

They're not too bad. Crunchy, if I remember right (it's been awhile), it just looks kind of...creepy :)

I'll swallow the occasional gnat that drowns in my wine glass...but that's about it.

I see more potential with using these as part of a practical joke than for actually snacking on.... ;)

Well, I eat snails, fish eggs and raw fish, so why not? When you take away the fancy names for sushi, escargot and caviar, they're pretty gross sounding themselves.

Considering grasshoppers probably don't ingest all the hormones chickens and cows do and the poo that pigs do, i'd try then once!

I'd eat them if they didn't look like grasshoppers. Take off the heads, wings and legs and saute them they might not be bad; but to eat bugs is just strange to me, although I do love escargot. Go figure.
