    Well they are good for you according to the UN. And they could replace meat.

    Caterpillars could be the new beef, because it has a higher proportion of protein and fat than beef. And they are very nutritious.

    So would you eat those yummy delectable oh so delicious creepy crawlies.

    I was actually asking myself this question the other day.

    I think I'd give it a go, as long as it wasn't:
    A) Ugly looking- worms and scorpions are a nono.
    B) Alive- the thought of something wriggling round in my mouth is terrifying
    C) Chewy- that doesn't appeal to me for some reason, so maybe fried crickets or something, apparently they do them dipped in chocolate.

    But yeah, I'd try it once, just to say I've tried it.

    The UN wants us to eat these creatures, it warned of a global food shortage not long since. I just think it is wrong. I'd rather eat plants and fruit before I eat insects.

    The idea of it's just not been in modern life enough to become accepted as 'mainstream' imo, so the idea is really strange. At this stage, nope.

    Really! That is brave of you. I'm a picky eater so an insect dish isn't my thing.

    They look really nice to be honest and I wouldn't mind, people these days need to grow a pair and try new foods.

    I don't mind myself as long as the meat is separated from the body/shell and presented nicely like chicken breast, steak, minced meat or prawns etc.

    So its ok to eat cattle but not insects, what logic is that. If theres a food shortage, we can't be so picky anymore.
