Yuckkk! My daughter Stefie trying to put a big grasshopper into her mouth as a dare. Of course she didn't make it! This proves not all Chinese are bad grubbers like me!

It's kinda fun walking around Thailand and see the street side vendors selling these snacks. A small plastic bag of them is approx 45 cents. They are eaten with a sprinkle of the famous Thai fish sauce, Nam Pla.

Blindfold taste test of some of them :

Grasshopper - Just like crispy anchovies! Pat?

Silk worm - Softish and slightly salty. I give 6/10 for this.

Cicadas - Nothing to rave about. Make sure you tear off the wings first otherwise, you have a mouth full of it. Annoying.

Scorpions - Leather! Very little pulp in it. Boring....

Bamboo worms - Yummm... Taste like a butter stick and sweet!

Ant's eggs - Crispy caviar! Guudd!

i came across this old thread. the last number of pages are not for people with weak stomachx.
