One thing I've learned over the last few decades is that Asians really know their food. Maybe the PVs, but definitely not insects anytime soon. (Although I've had a lot of insects -- accidentally -- I'm a veteran camper!)
MOtorcycle, and bicycle rider, swimmer in the Northern Great Lakes, yeh, I've eaten a few bugs. Just being outside in the U.P., you're going to suck in a gant, or black fly once in a while, maybe even a mosquito or two. I know I have. You can usually expell them. But sometimes, they just go down the hatch. Cheap protien.

Yesterday I stopped at Walgreens in the orthodox area to get some ices and grabbed a six pack of cherry. it was 14.99! I put it back after waiting online 15 mins. It was Glatt but still it shouldn't be that expensive

Try explaining the concept of offal ("the waste or by-product of a process; especially : the inside organs of and parts trimmed from an animal killed and prepared for food") to someone raised in China.

I think over half of the world's population intentionally eats insects. I don't. It's one of my food prejudices. Locusts are even kosher!

I was at Costco the other day and because of this thread I had a look at the turkeys. That's the per kg price ($5.59/kg = $2.54/lb).

You don't have to go to China, go to the ballpark and have a hot dog!
