“By far the best way to eat mealworms” is another insight on tap.

Here is the AtlasObscura story, via the excellent Mark Thorson.

Sophisticated people drink orange curacao and eat veal marsala

Weirdos avoid alcohol and meat

Can real sophistication be such an easy thing?

And I sayalcohol is bad, meat is good

Drop the pretenses; listen to clergyman; and use your “natural forks” I say!

Very cool, but I’d still prefer a little sticky rice chili with my bugs.

Gimmicky stunt designed to attract publicity succeeds.

Eating insects is a feature, not a bug!

I expect insects to take the sustainability niche that people are predicting for fake meats. Healthy whole foods and if lobster is a guide, an easy to acquire taste.

Surely the best way to eat bugs is to process them so as to disguise what one is eating?

Because if you’re going to eat bugs, you don’t want to touch that icky shit with your fingers.

The American habit of using the word bug to refer to almost any small arthropod is extremely annoying and I wish they’d just stop it. The word bug only refers to certain members of the order hemiptera, specifically the sub-order heteroptera, and any use of the term outside of this precise and clearly defined meaning really bugs me.
