While in Scouts, we hade to eat several species of inverts as a "survival test" so to speak. Ants were my favorite, and taste just like honey or honeysuckle. I actually enjoyed eatting them..lol. Crickets were a bit meaty while being a bit fruity, and grubs and beetles were very nutty and soily tasting. I can't say that any were exactly gross, just odd. Again, I did think that the ants were very good...like the candy version of the bugs. We had to eat several species of plants too, which more of them ended out worse than the inverts.
