dugitman: And dip them in ranch dressing. Nothing is more American than ranch.
Mouser: I thought these bug snacks were worth pointing out because although they're obviously being sold as a novelty here, there are many who believe that insects are the food of the future. The Dutch are holding bug buffets and some are considering grinding bugs into meat patties to make them more palatable to Western palates.If we're reduced to eating bugs, clearly the terrorists have won.
Stone Meadow: Umm, no, but dark chocolate is an perfectly cromulent alternative.
panfried: Look, the sooner you pleabs and lower caste untouchables start eating bugs, the sooner the upper class can reserve the meats to themselves. Eat your bugs citizen! EAT EM'
dryknife: Are they free range bugs?
Jimmysolson: Mix them in with cereal. People won't even notice.

wildcardjack: I'd rather eat pigeon.
VJStinger: Stone Meadow: Umm, no, but dark chocolate is an perfectly cromulent alternative.mmmm... just like chocolate covered almonds... kinda.
El Dudereno: Jimmysolson: Mix them in with cereal. People won't even notice.Or peanut butter. Oh wait...
panfried: /srlsly, who eats like that naturally?
Gonz: wildcardjack: I'd rather eat pigeon.Well, yeah. Squab's tasty. Tastes like chicken thighs.But I'd snack on these for sure. Especially sour cream and onion. I'm a sucker for anything sour cream and onion flavored.
SeriousGeorge: I wish it were easier to find insects to eat here in NA. I'm probably the world's least picky eater, so I'm sure I'd find them tasty enough. It would also provide a great alternative to eating factory farmed mammals/birds.
alwaysjaded: I had always heard about how grasshoppers were supposed to taste like french fries. So when I found myself at Hugo's on Westheimer and they had braised grasshopper tacos, I figured I'd give them a try.They tasted like tree roots that had been marinating at the bottom of a sewage ditch outside of a seafood restaurant with poor refrigeration in butter sauce.
