The Cicada is often called a locust by mistake, although they are not related.  Known throughout the world because of their size but even more so because of their unique sound.

Regularly eaten around the world in locations such as China, Myanmar, Congo and Latin America, the female is prized for being meatier.  The shells are even used in China for traditional medicines.

Have you eaten a Cicada or other insect in your travels?  If so what and where?  Did you like it?   If not, would you try one if the opportunity arose?
