Just returned from Oaxaca where women sell fried grasshoppers with salt and lime in the markets. They come in small medium and large (the bugs, not the order). I tried them because I was there. Don't think I'd be as eager here. They were crunchy and salty, and really not all that great (not to mention a bit disconcerting) I didn't finish them, because they weren't that great, they are bugs, and there are so many delicious things to eat in Oaxaca. I'm glad I tried them though. Wonder what those dot commers are paying to have those things shipped to them? I'd be suprised if I paid 3 cents for the ones I ate.
Speaking of bug snacks, has anybody read any Mary Roach lately?
