Fruit Bat (Micronesia)
Saying "there's a bug in my soup" is quite literally the last thing you'll have to worry about with Micronesia's most famous culinary delicacy. Served frequently in a gingery and salty broth, the western Pacific island of Palau boils the winged creatures to tenderize their allegedly "gamy" and "fragrant" meat. Don't get any ideas, Campbell's. The population of fruit bats has been on the decline and we rely on them for pollination and pest control.
