      I myself have eaten mealworms flavored with bacon on purpose and a lot of flies accidentally while i bike. Eating bugs is called entomophagy. The mealworm’s exoskeletons got stuck in my teeth like popcorn kernels.

      People are trying to get insect protein out of bugs to make things like chicken nuggets (insect nuggets i guess) or tofu out of it. Do you think that people would be able to tell the difference if McDonalds replaced the chicken in its nuggets with insects?
