Edible Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants


ThinkGeek brings you Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants.
Leafcutter ants are a delicacy in many parts of Northern South America. These ants are thought to be aphrodisiacs, and are therefore quite a common wedding gift. They also make a nice snack. Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants hold two secrets. One, they are very high in protein and low in saturated fat. Two, they have a very unique taste.

They are commonly called 'hormigas culonas.' That roughly translates into 'big ass ants' - so named for the size of their abdomen, but also appropriate for today's slang. Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants - get 'em now, while the gettin' is good.

I would eat these if they were covered in chocolate.
