Re: [nafex] gypsy moth caviar & Weight Watchers

Gypsy moths might be okay, but don't try eating Japanese beetles.  I
have friends who thought they would be a terrific "natural food".  These
are people who ate ants and grasshoppers with relish.  They collected a
few hundred Jabs from the (unsprayed) rose bushes and popped them in the
oven.  Let's just say they never tried that again.

In general, I think beetles are bitter and unpleasant.  Maybe that's why
there are so many of them.
