They can be scary and bizarre to some, but lo and behold, they are nutritious. We got a lot of crickets here. They can either be sauteed in tomatoes, garlic and shallots or that famous Filipino recipe, adobo--soy, garlic, vinegar. They don't taste bad to be honest, they have this taste.like a.peanut.butter. Exotic or bizarre these can be, they are nutritious too. Cricket has a nutritional value (per 100 grams)12.9 g of proteins, 5.5 g of fats, 5.1 of carbohydrates, 75.8 mg of calcium, 7.9 mg of iron. *research says* So, would you dare?

That was a much more polite way of saying, "EWWW! GROSS!", than I used, @LadyDuck ! LOL! Your way didn't quite convey the urgency of saying, "No thank you!", that mine did, though! (giggling my tush off!)

@Daljinder That is far from your usual polite, "No, thank you, anyway!" What happened there, DJ? Cricket got your tongue? (laughing and teasing you!) You were about as polite as I was in my original post to @Lucky15 ! You just hide behind being vegetarian!

@DaddyEvil I have been talking with her for sometime. So, she is used to me by now. When I get to know a person well and feel like they got used to my way of talking, I drop the formalities. I dropped the formalities with you too when I started addressing you as DE. Otherwise I would tag you properly to address you. I am still polite though Well I try to be.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Wiki image.
LMFAO! Your comment wasn't quite as funny as mine, @crazyhorseladycx , but it supplied the same sentiment! I was not big on peanut butter, anyway, so @Lucky15 's description didn't bother me that way. Hopefully, next time I pop a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup into my mouth I won't get a visual of that picture!

@DaddyEvil i'd the need to consume quite a bit'f peanut butter when i was tryin' to get the body to absorb proteins. that'n naners make a purty tasty ('n fattenin', to the delight'f my doc's, lol) muffin. 'course, i'd put dark chocolate chips'n 'em...'xcept fer the pups. ya know, coz chocolate's toxic to our lil canine friends? yepperz, i dunno if'n i could e'en partake'n a reese's cup...

I don't know if I would dare. It would take a lot to do so. I know they are on the Bible diet, but I'll stick to the more familiar foods until that isn't possible.

@just4him Well, good for you for being a dare devil! I'm normally not! I know there are foods I will eat and enjoy while my daughter gets sick smelling it! LOL! Pretty won't even eat boiled eggs! She claims I am eating farts when I eat them! Of course, when she says that, I act like I am straining to "blow her a kiss"! She screams and runs for her room!

I dont thin so.. I'm scared of insects.. I probably will but only if there's nothing left to eat or if someone will pay me to do it.. that looks more like something that came form Fear Factor.. My sister tried eating scorpions in THailand when she visited.. and grasshoppers..

Oh, no! Absolutely not. Isn't it funny how different cultures have such different food tastes? I know from my B,A in Anthropology that a lot of people eat termites and consider them a delicacy. Fried crickets seem the same kind of thing.

Eggs of ants are being eaten.here too. Haven't had termiteds though. And mostly asian countries ate insects.like a usual streetfood
