    Suri grubs. The larvae of the palm weevil.
    I haven't had them alive but roasted they have kind of a nutty flavor and texture.
    Nothing fancy but good enough. Like peanuts but a little softer.

    They are not maggots. That's flie larvae who live on putrid decaying matter. Yech.
    Much more like caterpillars in the sense that they live in clean places and are vegetarian. They eat palm leaves and wood.
    Probably one of the cleanest ways to get protein.

    Given the fact that can achieve up to 21 generations in a year on just plant fibers, if we would just get over the look of them (and other edible insects) we could cut pollution from growing meat in half next year.

    I promise you insects can be very tasty and the are extremely nutritious.
    You don't have to at them alive. That's just showing off but you can sauté them and or use them to supplement a ground tofu dish.

    I don't like looking at guys eating live grubs either but I would hate to see a guy drink from an utter to (or be extremely turned on. Depends on the guy and how he does it.).

    The more available variation would be meal worms. You'll be able to get them from the pet store.
    I would pass on the first generation. Just raise a few to become beetles and go from there.

    Another good starter are grasshoppers. Sautéed they taste like a bland crunchy cookie. If you fry them it's more like the drier tip of a croissant.
    Not a strong taste and certainly not something you would notice in a salad if you didn't know what it was.

    They sell chocolate covered grasshoppers now and you really only taste the chocolate.

    Now I have something new to research (and taste) for an extension of my paleo-ish way of eating.

    A restaurant I frequent in Ft Lauderdale serves sushi with baby octopus. It's already dead (not moving) and has a good flavor, but it's way too chewy for my preference. I couldn't imagine eating a larger octopus, dead or "alive" (nerves still active). It would take forever to chew it.
