    I’m brave but not that brave! I do want to try jellyfish though. I had a prof. tell me about it and he made it sound very yummy. Considering I have a fascination with blorpies in general.. go figure. (Blorpies are their name because they make the sound “blorp, blorp” as they swim!

      Come to the dark side, Nanami. Eat bees with me…

    Ugh, that gets my stomach turning just thinking about it. I’ve eaten plenty of crazy sources of food, but I think I’ll leave Hachinoko as a mystery. >_<

    Very interesting. I’m not sure that I would rush out and buy a can but it might be interesting to try someday. I have seen cans of chocolate covered ants before but have yet to try those either.

    • Are those from Japan or Korea or somewhere else? Choc-covered ants?

  • totally reminds me on BONDAIGI that i ate in korea.

    the smell and the taste. ick.

    i eat just about anything…but bondaegi was pretty dang bad!!!!

    a japanese emoticon would be >_<

          Thanks MDS. Every time I think of eating any type of worm, all I can think of is Bear Grylls eating that humongous larva and I just can’t bring myself to do it.

          • Ewww….me either! I’d rather eat a dead baby bee than a live worm!

  • Very interesting and good post, Donnie! Poor baby bees!

  • Fio

    Is it kosher to eat baby bee? Just a question!

    Hey we had baby bees in Japan a couple of weeks ago. But they were fresh not in a tin and accompanied by crickets. Rather tasty we thought. But that was after rather a lot of saki and Japanese whiskey.
