Silkworm (South Korea)
Since the majority of silkworms are bred in silk factories and immediately disposed of before turning into moths (what a sad life!), the concept of eating the pulpous creatures is actually deemed environmentally friendly. In South Korea, the worm is boiled and seasoned to create the perfect mid-afternoon snack, but eater beware: the taste is quite bitter and they pop in your mouth. It's apparently a flavor and texture you get used to. Who knew you could have your silk scarf and eat it too?
