Which Bangkok Bug Should Lars Eat This Week?

As you know, Lars loves to try new things, especially food.  Well, he has an entirely new world to choose from here in Thailand and he is just going nuts trying new things.  We have sampled many new fruits, but that was ease. Lars has now decided to attempt to eat some of the local creatures we are seeing on the streets.  Well, not on the streets, but in carts for sell on the streets of Bangkok.  He wants you to help him decide what to try.

Vote by Wednesday midnight eastern time.

  1. Crickets, believe it or not I had roasted crickets with chili and lime once and it really wasn’t bad.

  2. Totally go for the brown crickets, they taste like popcorn!!! Besides, I’ve heard that no one actually eats the scorpions besides the crazy tourists. One question though…is Anya sponsoring this contest? Who else would come up with a reason for a brother to eat something disgusting other than a little devious sister????! 🙂

    • Hey Emily. Thanks so much for your vote. Ha,you obviously know us well! This time Anya isn’t pulling strings, it is all Lars. He is are curious one. I hope you are having a lovely time in Italy. Just loved looking at all of your photos in France.

  3. I shared this with my boys (8 and 6) and they both said, “you can eat crickets in the states! Eat the scorpions!” 😉 Do it for boykind. Hehe

    • Hey Celia! How are you? Wow, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You brave soul, you tried them? Ha! Good for you.

  4. I’m not pulling any punches, number 6, the tarantulas! They’re expensive though. Did you have to pay the lady 6 times to take those photos or was she happy with 1 payment? James had a grasshopper/locust years ago, said it was prawn-y.

    • Ha! Bring it on Alyson. 🙂 We paid 10 baht and she was very kind and let us keep taking photos and I took some video too. Then she gave Lars a little free sample of a grub…Ha! Can’t wait to show that reaction.

  5. Go, Lars! I’m so impressed by all of you for your grand adventure, and I’m delighted to read about Lars’ risk-taking and inquisitiveness! My vote is for brown crickets, because I’ve heard they are pretty tasty. Bon appetit!

    • Hey Kathryn, Thanks so much for following along and taking the time to vote. I think Lars will be delighted by your vote. However all of his friends are voting for something bigger on instagram. UG!

  6. How funny as my thoughts were exactly as the first two! I feel number 3 is the least disgusting. Bet all the males will vote for the worst!

  7. Ick! I would have to say the grasshoppers would be my choice as the least offensive. Sounds like an episode of “Survivor” Go for it Lars.

  8. Ugh, I can’t even stand to look at the pictures. However, I’ll vote for the crickets, probably brown because it seems like they would be the “least” offensive/dangerous.
    Lars is a brave man!

Come on and tell us what you think!
