I ate those termites as a child-pan roasted (never raw) and enjoyed them too. Its been years and years since I last did. I would totally eat them now too. They were quite delicious...

*Gulp!

Ok, childhood....

How about today? Would you still eat them? All crawly legs and wings.....some probably come out from homes that someone with gonorrhea defecated on? :D (just putting it mildly)
The bowls are left open in the air, therefore those that fall into the water bowls are already out in the open not in anybody's home. They live out in the open anyway in fields and bushy areas...have you ever been out termite hunting ? They have these big mudhills about 3 feet tall...(Ile Ikan in Yoruba ie Termite House), you Yanks prolly know them as anthills. The queen usually swells up massively when pregnant..so you have to demolish the hill to dig out the queen. She tastes absolutely delicious when roasted...:D Yes, I'd eat them in a heartbeat today!!! Shay Naija pipulses still dey chop am ? ah no sabi sef!

Capital no! Infact, they get eaten by roaches when they fall on the ground. That's when you see the local fowls come out at night to eat the roaches which have fed fat on roaches...:D So will you refuse to eat local fowls(hens, cockerels etc) just because they feast on roaches ? Even Agric fowls will consume coackroaches when they have access to them...:D Oya, mek yu go tek Andrews liver salt...hahahaaa :)

Those are really good. You can catch them in a bowl of water and bake them in the oven like you are baking chicken. My uncle always brings them from Nigeria when he goes. I have not eaten them in years now but I remember that they are tasty

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?
That's "Aku'', the winged delicacy. Fry it, fry it and steam it with corn pulp...mmm mmm yummy!:worshippy . I probably won't touch it again, not even with a 50-foot pole, but you never know, especially since it's been a long time since I had some of that tasty ''snack'':biggrinsa

That stuff is nothing compared to all the unconventional meat and snacks I sampled as a kid and a teenager. They include but not limited to grasshopper, rhinoceros beetle, rainbow lizard, owl, cat, snake and others too numerous to mention.sconf:

Nooooo kidding. I can assure you the rhinoceros beetle tastes better than any chicken/turkey/duck you've ever had. The mouth watering sizzling oil oozing out of the ''juicy'' part of the beetle while you roast it will have you drooling like someone struck with paralysis.

Pop it into your mouth straight outta the fire and experience the explosive crispy, crunchy, smokey, creamy, yummy yummy delicacy. I call it the snack of life...ahhh good times! food-sm:

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.
Edun in Bini...Dry roasted with salt and peper...
