Ants

Who doesn’t love ants on a log? Crispy celery, smooth peanut butter, and sweet little raisins on top. Just If make sure to check that those little dark spots aren’t actual ants if you happen to be traveling in Australia, Colombia, or Thailand. In Australia, honeypot ants gorge themselves on nectar until they swell with the sweet fluid, and natives seek them out as a sugary treat. Toasted leafcutter ants are a Colombian specialty, eaten by the handful. Fried red ants are popular as garnish, flavoring, and snack food in Thailand. Closer to home, you can find ant-egg tacos served throughout Mexico.
