Have you ever eaten bugs... On purpose?

Not like "there was a worm in my salad!" but like "I've had sauteed silkworms".
When I was a kid, my aunt took me to a secluded mountain resort where they specialized in "mountain food"... The menu included various wild plants, boar dishes, as well as candied locusts. I could only bring myself to eat the legs...
Another bug dish: at a different resort, we were served fresh honeycomb with a yellow jacket in it. The yellow jacket is suppose to release a toxin that's good for you, or something like that.
What kind of bugs have you ingested intentionally?
Intentionally? None..... Oh, maybe there were the insect shell of the cicada. Not the intact cicada, just the shell. I had to drink the soup from them. A lot of them.
I have eaten many other insect unintentionally, but cicada shell is the only one which I had to eat over and over again for about more than 1 week.
