Oh, I'd be willing to sell them. Perhaps even "farm" them. But eat them? :o

NEVER, I say!

I haven't intentionally tried insect yet either.  I do plan to try Australian Green Ant Gin as an introduction though.

Paint thinner made from juniper berries is bad enough and you want some nasty acidy ants in it? :huh:

I'll give anything a shot myself. Dunno if it's because I crossed an age threshold or something, but none of the liquor and beer I like taste right anymore.

I'll wait for the subtle pyschological horror of "those goddam spiders that eat birds"-infused bourbon.

Green ants are known as Gukguk to the Larrakia people.  It has a taste of lemon and can help with colds and headache.

Green ants are a common medicine among many Aboriginal Tribes.......They have a acidic bite which could seem lemony. 

I'll stick with my own herbs thankyouverymuch. :yes:

Beer is for social drinking, liquor for home. 

Guinness used to have a good, strong coffee taste to me. Been dissapointing lately, most local brews have a similar almost soapy taste. 

And large domestic brands are love in a canoe beer.

Buddy of mine went with his then fiance to visit her family in Vietnam. 

Her uncles presented him with a bottle of snake wine for his good health. He finally broached it and drank some. 

Later tells his father in law it tasted like horse hockey. 

 The dude laughed his end off, they gave it to him as a joke.

There might be some truth to that but it must be remembered: bugs, including maggots, ARE NOT FOOD. EVER!

I tried one of those by accident. No matter how good the music playing is, don't sing along while running a wood lathe.

The Force Recon Marines aren't a branch of the U.S. Military. They're a cult. :unsure2:
