Can you really eat insects and bugs?
Yes, of course you can, alive or dead, but there’s always that risk of getting something quite nasty as a result.
In this review I want to show you a way you can try a whole selection of insects and bugs that you wouldn’t normally think of eating.
Kindly donated by BugGrub, I shall go through a good selection from simple worms to some nice juicy scorpions.!
- Bamboo Worms
- Giant Waterbug
- Armour Tail Scorpions

When we think of insects and bugs as food, we normally think of someone like Bear Grylls, chomping away on a big fat maggot or some other crunchy critter and think “I’d like to try that”….
As well as insects being possible life savers in a survival situation, they are also surprisingly nutritious, with a simple grasshopper having some 30g protein per 100grams.
Edible insects in the UK are quite rare and finding a good selection of safe edible insects and bug food, even rarer.
So I have jumped at this opportunity to test out and review this great selection and this is my review video:
Edible insects Uk – test & review
So, as you can see, a great selection of bugs and insects, perfectly prepared and packaged, making a great high protein snack at any time.
They look good and really do taste good – especially the chocolate covered scorpion.!
