  • I've eaten quite a few. I've had cricket, grasshopper & mill-worm candy. Chocolate covered ants. And I would love to try scorpion grilled, I hear it's really nutty. Honestly I don't see the difference between insects and any other animal.

  • I ate a cricket sucker for extra credit in high school, i don't remember why we had that presentation, what it related to in our learning curriculum or even who the teacher was lol. I know it was a science class and 10 points extra credit were offered so I went for it. The taste was fine, but I couldn't get pass the texture of eating the bug, I gagged and ended up vomiting... But, I got my extra credit for trying, and I was the only one :)

  • I would try bugs I think..raw might be gross but sauteed might be okay. I hear scorpion tastes kind of like crab.

  • Actually I have. Scorpions do have a bit of a crab flavor but are nutty as well. I love the looks on the kids faces!!!
