The Most Scary, Disgusting & Gross Food to Eat #8

Termite Ant Queen

'I was working with a Central African Pygmy tribe tracking gorillas, when we stopped at a giant mound. My two guides hacked away at it, getting bitten for their troubles - one reached in, & yanked out the queen. "Here," she said, "it's for you. It tastes good!" It was still moving - I asked about cooking the thing & she said "Oh, no - we just eat them..."

I popped it into my mouth and... crunched. After the initial bite, eggs squirted out, down my throat. It tasted kinda like a stick of butter. I found out later that this wasn't a trick - they really did eat the things that way.' - io9 user Earthwulf
