My kids like to eat their ants plain, they say that they taste like Sweet
Tarts.  I have only tried their favorites, the large black carpenter
ants.  It is amusing as to how persuasive they are, a great many people
have tried them on their recomendation.  The key advice, remove the
mandables first.  Ant's got your tounge has quiet the ring to it....

Only other insect I have eaten on purpose were Katidids.  Not bad, but
don't care to again.  It is when the random moth is inhaled that I protest,
wings on the back of the throat are annoying; but I can't imagine that I
would like the crunchy carpace of the grasshopper.  Is there a certain
season that Balsac prefers them?
