Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects book image

Peter Menzel's first reaction to eating a live jumil, or flying stink bug (Euchistus taxcoensis), at the Jumil Festival. The insect attempted to escape from his mouth. It tasted "like an aspirin saturated in cod liver oil with dangerous sub-currents of rubbing alcohol and iodine." Taxco, Mexico. (Man Eating Bugs page 15)
