Sorry if it sounds disgusting, but there are some people out there who have for a fact done so. Anyone here? If so, what kind of bugs and how did it smell/taste?

Well, honestly I have ate one and suprisingly it tastes good. It smells nice and tastes like a shrimp. I ate it in a festival in the province of my grandmother. Actually, I'm craving for it right now because I really love shrimp. Does that makes me a hermit but I don't care whatever people think....... Hahaha

Does ants count? I have eaten quite a few of them. They usually find their way into my bread, cookies or candies and sometimes even my drinks. Sometimes I accidentally eat them when I didn't check my food carefuly. They are tasteless, I think but they give the food a grainy feeling, as if you are chewing on sand or sugar.

Well, I haven't ever eaten a bug, but my father has eaten fried scorpions and tarantualas. He said that they were crunchy, but never said anything about how they actually tasted.
