Food Wackiness

Oh no, it's another 'Bats Goes to the Asian Food Store' post.

I know my way around Asian food stores well enough that I seldom run across surprises. But I saw this can on the shelf this weekend... I wondered...



Hmm...



Oh. Yikes.

Now, I occasionally revel in eating bug-like things. Like grilled amaebi (sweet shrimp) head. Or pickled tiny whole shrimp. Or playing Jabba the Hut when eating fried soft shell crab ([crunch crunch] HO HO HO HO HO).

But "Silkworm Pupa Seasoned With Soy Sauce and Sugar" is a bit much for me, thanks. Yeah, I know... wuss.

If you really want to know, check out
"Steve, Don't Eat It!"


Along with silk worm pupae, he also tries natto, cuitlacoche, potted meat product, and a bunch of other things that will make your stomach churn, and comments in amusing fashion.

Eating natto always makes me feel like I'm eating thick, runny snot. Ick.

Gwarghaa... natto. Yurgh. Yeah, I wanted to tell my mom, "Well, it's good to know that if the world ever runs out of snot, we have a copious synthetic source." Actually, I wonder if it's ever been used for movie special effects? ("Sir, the walls of the hive are made out of some type of resinous secretion...")
