Warning: If you recently ate lunch, you’re not going to want seconds after seeing these “dishes!”
Here is a list of some of the worlds edible bugs. We are not sure if you will want to try them, but they are worth noting.
1.) Agave Worms
This kind of worm is sometimes found in tequila or mezcal bottles. The larvae are often pickled in alcohol or consumed as a standalone dish in Mexico.
In China and Thailand, scorpions are typically served fried, where they taste like a soft-shell crab.
Roasted grasshoppers are a fairly common dish in Mexico. They are served with chile and lime, and sometimes featured in grasshopper tacos!
4.) Honeypot Ants
The Aboriginal people of Australia eat these ants, which also serve as walking food carts to other ants in the colony.
Fried silkworm grubs are consumed in South Korea and Thailand, where the silk industry looms large.
Described as tasting like a cross between chicken and shrimp, these African grasshoppers are common in Uganda as a fried dish.
Mealworms are typically used as pet food, but sustainability organizations in Europe promote its use as an ingredient in other dishes, like cakes or burgers.
