One person's trash is another person's treasure. What is repulsive to us may be a delacy in another country, and vice versa. I would be willing to try everything once, since we are all human, and that way we are all the same. If it's a delacy somewhere, think I could try it.

i saw on a show once that i think it's in mexico they eat like a fajhita thing with fried grasshoppers or some sort of bug in it. she said it tasted just like chicken but i can't see myself trying it. i gag easily and i know it would all be in my head but if i'm thinking of what i'm eating i'll gag and through it back up.

This is a wild question because my husband was over in Korea and they do eat things like bugs. We were talking the other day about him trying chocolate covered ants. I just cringed. I can not picture me eating a bug by accident let a lone by choice. I do understand that the French find bugs good so I guess you would have them in canada. My kid never ate bugs when she was little and she says no way now is she going to start.

I've never purposefully eaten an insect. Most people at one time or another in their life have eaten a bug in their sleep.
