Ever since I can remember I have loved fresh fruit. As a kid I couldn’t even let it completely ripen before plucking it off the limb or vine. My dad always knew who the culprit was who gleaned his grape vines and big domesticated Blackberry bushes. Although skinny as a rail, I was a walking appetite. Of course I could eat my weight in apples and peaches, my absolute favorite was figs. Not only were they sweet and tasty, those broad leaves on the tree offered ample cover for a little fig thief. Much to my dismay, I recently discovered why I will never eat another one. If you watch this clip, you won’t either.
I may NEVER eat a fig again!! Or maybe it’s just extra protein!?? Share this and warn your friends?? #figs #wasps #pollinating #pollination #nature #yummy #lar...

@UncleJoe They must be full of fibre. It doesn't turn me off of figs either way. I was told in another post by someone that June bugs and beetles are an exotic food in their country. If she can eat beetles, then a few decomposed wasps blended with the fruit of the fig shouldn't hurt anyone, regardless of the color jacket they wear.

Well, ewwww I love figs. Now, no figs for me. Jelly beans are shiny because they're coated in shellac, which is a resin that's secreted by the female lac bug (laccifer lacca) after it drinks the sap of trees. Jelly beans, candy corn, and other hard-coated candy that look shiny have that bug's secretions to thank.
