Weird things I have eaten

Playing in the try it or deny game has made me think of things I have eaten in the past and probably would not face again. Certainly there are foods from one culture that others would not touch.

As a child in what is now Zimbabwe, we used to eat mopane worms - big fat grubs which we quickly fried and flying ants - strip the wings off and flash in a pan of butter. I remember these being a great treat. But now, I don't know if I could face them.

Anyone else got similar experiences?

I am one of those people that will try just about anything once. Probably the weirdest thing I have had are fried bees.

Sorry didn't see this before I posted something similar in the "try it" thread. But I remember doing the worm thing as well except it was fried earthworms from recipe in a kid's book we read in school!!
