I never tried 'em. Seen too many insects infected with parasites. All I can say is if you're going to eat a big, make damn sure it's cooked well done.

Bug.

I've tried wasabi and teriyaki crickets. Very nice.

Yep, Some experts say you have to clean them. Like pulling their heads off and the entrails follow along with the head.

I rather not eat bugs I got enough troubles cleaning up shrimp as it is.

I ate about ten of these today.  Does that count?

I just drink beer. All the hops, but less gross.

It would help me with my digestive health because if anyone put a cricket near my mouth, the ensuing projectile vomit would clear out anything I might have eaten that wasn't good for me.

Crickets taste fine. Much more pleasant than eating canned silkworm pupae. Those were terrible tasting.

I feed my nephew's dragon meal worms. He dared me to eat one and I did, taste like nothing.

Wasn't there some recent story about a couple of Chinese people who became really sick after eating centipedes? They became infected with rat lung-worm or something? I'm sketchy on the details, but I'm certain at this point that eating insects is not worth the risk, and certainly not something I'd consider to be good for any kind of health. Pass.
