    Have you ever eaten insects ? 9th Jul 17 at 8:06 PM
    What did the nursery rhyme say....
    There was an old Lady that swallowed a fly.
    Have you ever tried eating insects ?
    I'm watching Countryfile on Bbc, they were at a farm where they breed crickets, for human consumption, then they went to another place breeding flies. The protein can go into animal food and even be made into a bio-fuel for cars.

    The reporter tasted it and said it was ok, but i'm not so sure..

    I would love to see one (a glow worm that is). I think you can get them in this country

    I think if the insects are cooked and don't obviously look like insects, I wouldn't be averse to eating them. Protein is protein.

    Ditto. If they were ground up into a burger with no obvious bug parts, I'd give them a go. I think it's the only food where being more processed is a plus!
