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.

Heck no. I didn't even think it was a soup!

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.

A.) It doesn't even look like soup! B.) It doesn't look appetizing even before i knew what was in it. That being said, no way! :SICK:

I saw that it had little legs in it before I even read what it was. I have a hard time with peel and eat shrimp, don't think I could muster up the courage on this one.

People eat bugs all the time in Asia and Africa - they're great sources of protein. I think if all the legs and antennae were pulled off I would totally eat it. Just think about how a shrimp looks in the wild (kinda like a fat centipede) and how delicious they are when they're cleaned up!

Hornets or not, that soup does NOT look good. Maybe if the hornets were coated in dark chocolate instead of vomit soup, then I would eat them. All of them!
