    Probably the best way around the yuck factor is to grind and mix into something... The new pink slime for ground beef? lol

      I like crickets and grasshoppers/locus (as pictured). They are great with beer (fried).

      Into the hopper it goes -- just have to remember to take off the small legs beforehand because it can cause windpipe issues :p

          I grew up in Africa, and mopane worms (a type of moth caterpillar) were common and popular for eating -- fried by themselves, or with tomatoes, onions, and various vegetables.
