  1. I wonder how they taste! Intriguing…



  2. I tried it when I was in Oaxaca but I think they were ground up. I don’t think I could do it whole.

  3. Whoa! Wanna try – you make everything look good!

  4. I’m not sure I could actually do that….the crunch would get to me. Kudos to you, though!

  5. I had them covered in chocolate and anything covered with chocolate is good!

  6. I’ve eaten grasshopper tacos in Oaxaca and really enjoyed them. I did balk at the live, squiggling grubs that were thrust at me in the market though. I like the look of them atop the guacamole.

  7. You even make an insect look good Ben!!!

  8. Whoa! I eat snails but I don’t think I could eat grasshoppers. I was so afraid of them when I was a kid and will still ran for miles if I see one :) Is that guacamole on the tacos? Happy holidays!

  9. O lol… you make even grasshoppers look good Ben! I’ve had them in Thailand once and well, they were pretty salty so I think they would go well on these taco’s. I did have a bit of an issues with the tiny legs getting stuck between my teeth.. :)
