Grasshopper Snacks

What's special about today is that Naldo gave me grasshoppers to eat. It's both our first time to eat fried grasshoppers. I'm surprised I didn't hesitate. Well, I probably would have hesitated if someone else offered it to me. 

Anyway, this delicacy is called Chapulin al Ajo . A colleague brought it from Mexico. 

So how did it taste like? The chapulines were garlic-flavored so that's what. Someone told me before that it tasted like chicken but now that I have eaten it myself, to me it doesn't taste like chicken at all. It tasted like how I imagined insects would taste like. It was crunchy so it' was easy to chew and swallow. I don't think I'll take it so well if it was gummy or slimy. 

Did we like it? It's not bad but at the same time it's not something we'd crave for. 

After this, I won't be so afraid to try the ones in Thailand. I heard they serve scorpions there. 

That's all for now. Stay happy!


  1. Hahaha "I'm surprised I didn't hesitate" - I am too! I would definitely have done a quadruple take if offered grasshopper to eat. And garlic flavoured? I'm almost curious enough to check what other flavors exist.

    But hey! I hear they're a good source of protein!
    Love the blog. Hope you two cuties had a great 2016! Here's to a fresh new year!

    1. Hahaha! Grasshopper was easy. Scorpion- I can imagine. Edible worm- i am not sure. :-D

      I'd say we had a great 2016 because we learned a lot. There was a lot of problem-solving and decision-making this year. Hahaha! That doesn't sound so good. Well, it's all about having a positive outlook. ;-) And despite being at work 12 to 15 hours a day, almost every day, we got to go to places we've never been to like India and most importantly we met new friends.

      Thank you so much for taking time to visit the blog! May you have a memorable, safe, wonderful and fruitful 2017. Sending you lots and lots of positive energy!!! XO
