If you can’t kill them, eat them. I’m referring to those termites you hate that eat up the walls in your home. Thailand has come up with a productive form of revenge. You can eat termite egg soup. This soup is also popular in Vietnam and Cambodia. The soup includes eggs, partially formed termite embryos and some baby termites or ants. The eggs are a bit sour but are soft to the tongue. The larvae adds spice to the soup. They look like rice grains except sometimes you’ll find an antenna or a few legs sticking out. If someone’s bucket list is to eat every type of soup in the world, here is one you might have missed. Want to know about other weird foods? Go here.
