    They're particular ants, called lemongrass ants.
    Because of the nature of their diet, they literally add a citrus flavour to the beer.

    I imagine Australian honey ants, or similar would be interesting for this type of thing.

    As a regular part of my diet, it would be an effort and I'd have to get over the gag reflex. But I might try it out of curiosity. If I like it and got used to it, that would settle it for me!

    We routinely eat crickets at my dive bar. They put a bunch of novelty stuff in the vending machine, some of which are boxes of flavored crickets. I like the bacon cheddar ones a lot

    I've had roasted crickets. Pretty tasty! Crunchy and on the nutty side.

    have you ever ate red velvet cake? The icing in red foods made with bugs. Ate cereal? It's well known a certain amount of bugs are allowed in it and youveprobably ate some not realizing it. Hard candies? Again the coating is made with bugs. All y'all guys have probably ate them without realizing it

    I wonder how many people in this thread that say no to eating bugs have ever enjoyed lobster or crab...
