As I noted on Facebook, I’m thoroughly impressed that you can make me sound even more pretentious. That really does take skill =) A fun read!

I think the empanada shell overwhelmed the grasshopper taste, but I liked it. :)

Thanks, guys! Indeed, grasshoppers do not carry much of a flavor on their own. :)

Brandon: Now, now. You were hilarious. I loved your commentary–very descriptive!

Just reading that made me feel queasy..ugh.

I do like the format of this piece. It, unfortunately in this instance, puts the reader at the table with you.

I ate grasshoppers when I was stationed over seas. I agree that they’re pretty flavorless on their own! They taste kind of like grass if you have them plain no salt or anything.

They were nutritious but I’ll stick with my steaks!

I’ve eaten grasshoppers straight up – they were bitter (but they might have been a little burnt – hard to tell).

I’ve definitely been hungry enough to eat grasshoppers recently. Wouldn’t have thought twice the first two weeks at OCS.

I would so eat these things. When you’ve already had mill worms and bugs in chocolate, it’s not a big deal. The secret is in the sauce.

I don’t care if it makes me sound narrowminded.

I will never ever EVER eat bugs on purpose. Yuck. :^(

Hahahahahahahahahha! Love it. =] I also love that I can now say I know what grasshoppers taste like but that I’ll never have to try them.
