Ummmmmm…no. Just no.
Though they might be useful in space.
Oh God, that made me nauseous.
What -is- the state of the not-just-packed-along food for longer trips, bases?
Two weeks ago, after swatting 625 flies on my patio (I was counting), I wandered over to my neighbor’s freshly emptied trash can and opened the lid. It was empty except for about a quarter inch of squirming maggots lining the bottom, so I’m thinking a good DIYer could grow their own larvae without any special equipment, other than what they already own.
Bugs are gross but fish love them…
It’s a clever ruse by insects to use humans as a means to colonize other planets.
Mmmm larva. Eating a handful reminds me of Pop rocks (I can’t remember the name of the gum that goes squirt). The other wonderful thing about larva is that it is one of the few words that goes plural without an s…at least outside of Detroit
Oh, I see you’ve tried the new McMaggot breakfast biscuit.
FYI – you are probably already eating insects since you were a kid

Don’t bug out, but your food is covered in insects
Most food products contain FDA-approved levels of wings and thoraces — and the UN says they’re good for you!
By Kyle Hill
[[[The FDA’s Defect Levels Handbook lays it all out. Staples like broccoli, canned tomatoes, and hops readily contain “insect fragments”—heads, thoraxes, and legs—and even whole insects. (I won’t tell you about the rat hair limits…) Fig paste can harbor up to 13 insect heads in 100 grams; canned fruit juices can contain a maggot for every 250 milliliters; 10 grams of hops can be the home for 2,500 aphids (pictured above).]]]
