If it helps any, just close your eyes when eating these bugs, and you may be rewarded with a flavor you probably wouldn’t expect. Chapulines taste almost like salt and vinegar potato chips, but a bit wetter. There’s a satisfying crunch from the exoskeleton throughout, with a bit of tangy softness at the abdomen. And the entire chapulin is salty, tangy, and not at all what you would expect flavor-wise. The only downside are the twig-like back legs that you may end up picking out of your molars. Just close your eyes and get to popping.
