When I ask that question I actually mean to eat. To be honest with you I don't know how anybody but Timon and Pumbaa could actually call this a delicious meal. :erm

My wife and I started watching the show, Naked and Afraid, and how they'll eat bugs and other creepy things. Some can eat them while others take a bite and throw up.

After seeing so many contestants on that show get sick, what I would do is wash the bug first and then eat it or cook it first....dunno. But I know I would at least wash it first.

So you've never actually tried them but you want to try them? No offense or anything but I think that's gross! However I will go ahead and make that one of the options since I can still edit the survey. :)

It's not that I want to try them, but that in a survival situation, I most certainly consider them an option. I did run across an opportunity to try some chocolate covered ants on display at a store. I was 10 years old. I sampled a few. The chocolate was good and the ants were crunchy. That's all I remember.

Oh yeah, I see what you're saying now and in a survival situation yes of course obviously it would make a difference.

I never tried them, but I probably would in a survival situation. They are popular food in many of the world's countries, especially Asia.

Insects are supposed to be a good source of protein. You have to know what you are doing, and how to cook them.

Here is an article on how to choose and cook insects in a survival situation.





Hmm,.. very interesting, but I really hope that I am never starving because I would rather not have to eat bugs thank you very much. As for chocolate covered insects, I would probably leave the insect and eat the chocolate instead. :lol

I've eaten lobster. Tasty.
Yet these have to be boiled or steamed .not that its unhealthy just noting that we cringe over insects but eat mollusks,bottom feeders ,the later eats dead fish .the mollusks purify our water .red tide will affect them and you if you eat them

I've only eaten cooked lobster. I don't even trust uncooked lettuce.
You can't eat uncooked shellfish ,lobsters and crabs have that gland that renders the meat poisonous ,that's they steam or boil them.ever heard the squeal in a seafood restaurant ?its the lobster in the boiling water

I wonder why you can eat sushi raw though. Cooked sushi (and yes there is such a thing) is better than raw sushi, but both of them are right up there with eating insects to me.

Many countries eat bugs. Many times fried, sauteéd, or baked...even dipped in chocolate. It isn't an uncommon Valentine's Day gift in some places. In the United States, though, mostly a taboo. Lots of insect phobia. I love insects in general to observe or hold, but have never tasted one.

I can say, though, I have been curious. The only problem is it is expensive to buy crickets or something raised for human consumption without pesticides or insecticides. I have thought about raising them myself. Ah well, maybe one day I will get a chance.
