African Land Snail
The French aren't the only ones that consider snails a delicacy. The escargot is the size of your typical garden snail, but for the Africans it can reach to be the size of one's palm. Mix it with some African spices and you get a yummy giant snail.
This tasty grub is considered to be a staple food for some Africans. These worms are plucked right from the tree and can be fried then eaten straight from the pan or it can be mixed with some spices. If cooked properly, they're said to taste just like chicken. So if you end up trying this, just close your eyes and imagine what you're holding is fried chicken.
You've probably heard of people eating frog legs in some parts of the world, but what about the whole frog? In Namibia, this is exactly what they do. But beware, if prepared incorrectly it can cause kidney failure or as the locals call it, oshiketakata, because of its poison. So prepare your kidneys for this if you want to try it!
For the Maasai tribe of Africa part of their diet is drinking blood. Fresh. Blood. Right from the cow. Don't worry, they don't completely drain the cow of its blood, just enough to fill a container since the blood is usually used for sick people or for special celebrations in the tribe. They mix the blood with some milk. They kind of remind me of vampires but instead of human blood, they drink cow blood. Hey, at least they don't kill, right?
Yes, those critters you can find eating up the floorboards are eaten by people from rural South Africa. They eat termites as a main source of protein; it's even said to be a healthy alternative to popcorn. So next time you have a movie night and you run out of popcorn, maybe you can try these!
