No, this is not FEAR FACTOR program, this is a Nigerian delicacy! Even sold in the market by cup measurements.

Who ate this, and why?

Would you eat it today if you went to Nigeria?

Aku (winged termites) as it is locally known in Igbo land is a very delicious snack. It even tastes better roasted or dry pan fried. I would eat it any day! BTW, they're only available during the rainy season.

Great thread title! :fing02:

As for the question, I have no idea! :1200:
:D

but you ate it?
I know I ate termites as a kid, even waited for the rain to stop and did my Olympic jumps to catch them before they hit the ground.....when i grew older, of course, I stopped eating the termites, after learning biology in school and dissecting cockroaches during our practicals....because they suddenly looked like roaches to me...

Why i ate it? because other kids were eating it! And some adults! Fried with salt and little palm oil..... it surely was good (i think) eeeewwww!

My dear comrade!!! Exactamente!!! We used to leave bowls of water out at night, so by morning light huge masses of these migrating termites would have fallen in. We roast and blow out the wings, leaving the delicious crunchy termites mmmmmm...btw they are called Esunsun in Yoruba.
