“Grasshoppers in Mexico with guacamole and by themselves. They were good, kind of nutty. The legs can get caught in the teeth and that was odd. I’d for sure eat them again when I’m down there.”, said one user.

“Balut , fertilized duck egg. I didn’t travel for it though, my coworkers wife is from Cambodia and he always had unusual foods and I am adventurous with food. I also had fried silkworms that were quite delicious.

The egg wasn’t bad either I put some lime juice and fish sauce salt and pepper on it. The yellow part is kinda grainy but overall not too bad.”, said one user.

“Had balut in the Philippines. Don’t intend to have it again. Bird embryos are not my thing. Almost vomited on the streets.”, said one user.

“I once tried this thing called ‘casu martzu.’ It’s an Italian cheese, but not your everyday mozzarella or parm.

Nope, this one’s filled with live insect larvae. And let me tell ya, nothing wakes up your palate quite like cheese that fights back when you bite into it.”, said one user.
