The documentary TV-channel NOVA has put up a “nice” micro-site presenting different types of insects from around the Globe, which you can eat. Might be a good idea to add the site to your bookmarks, in case you will be travelling somewhere in the world where there is working W-lan, but no conventional food.

Time for all insect cracker lovers to head for Japan! A factory in in the Japanese city of Omachi has began the production on wasp crackers.
Here’s what they say at the Reuters:
“Jibachi senbei, or a digger wasp rice cracker, is held at a factory in Omachi town 200 km (124 miles) northwest of Tokyo September 4, 2007. A Japanese fan club for wasps has added the insects to rice crackers, saying the result adds a waspish scent to the traditional fare.”
…And of course they eat mainly insects, reptiles and eyeballs there.
