Broadening our Horizons By Brian on April 27, 2016

So far here at Gastrobug we've mostly eaten a bunch of ground up mealworms and crickets, with occasional snacks of dry roasted critters. Recently we broadened our horizons and tried some crickets that we cooked from frozen -- which were great, and which we'll be talking about soon! -- and today we picked up some waxworms and hornworms to try out. They're in the freezer right now, and in a day or two we'll test our resolve and our taste buds, probably by pan-frying them.

But before we killed them, we took pictures!
