fusillade762: Cricket-flour pasta or muffins will have to be very appetizing to overcome Americans' revulsion of eating insects, even cute ones like crickets.[miracleofnature.org image 850x484]ADORABLE!
Chinesenookiefactory: Crickets are bait.
Delta1212: If something is crushed into an unrecognizable powder, tastes good and won't poison you or make you sick, it ceases to be disgusting to eat.
Evil Mackerel: Chinesenookiefactory: Crickets are bait.Works for me.
vodka: _pleasant summer nights and crickets chirping_Sure! Lets eat them! Puke... Seriously, insects went off the human menu millenia ago. You know, like when we started using technology.
naz-drala: ...great, now manufactures will get around cleanliness regulations by saying those insect parts are supposed to be there.
theflatline: I have been in rooms with 10 million crickets. The smell was horrific.
big pig peaches: naz-drala: ...great, now manufactures will get around cleanliness regulations by saying those insect parts are supposed to be there.It's not a bug, it's a feature.
theflatline: I did consulting work for the largest cricket farm. I have been in rooms with 10 million crickets. The smell was horrific.I web design, tshirt design, etc. They flew me all over the US to do trade shows. And paid me a shiat ton of money and were the most wonderful people to work with. And offered me a full time job with a house and fat cash.I just could not do it.
mamoru: Meh. I've eaten fried crickets before. They don't taste terrible, but they don't taste particularly good, though I imagine the taste could easily be covered by various seasonings. Ground cricket flour? No problem.I've also eaten grubs. Same deal. They taste mostly like their seasoning but don't have the most pleasant aftertaste. Not bad, but not something I'd go out of my way to eat./do you folks who have problems with eating insects have problems with eating other arthropods like shrimp or crabs?
Solty Dog: I would only eat one after doing a midnight basement search for one of the little bastards. Hunted food tastes best.
TV's Vinnie: WTF is it with these freaks trying to force us to eat bugs?????
