Silkworm, anyone?

Korean silkworm

As much as I would like to try different kinds of food, I don’t think I have the stomach to try on Korean silkworm. When my husband and I visited the park, he bought this exotic street food. I couldn’t even get near the pot of the silkworm without feeling like I was going to puke. The odor alone reminds me not to get too close to it.

A cup costs 1,000 Korean won. My husband bought one and got two sticks. He asked me to try it but I was firm in saying NO! When I asked him about the taste, he said it was “delicious”. According to him, it’s crunchy when you bite it and the liquid inside spreads inside your mouth. Eeekkkkk! Just like “ipis”!

Will I have the guts to ever try it? No, no, no, no, no.

I wanna try different kinds of food but nothing too exotic please!


  1. ^^ YUP!!! two thumbs up for altair, gotta try the stuff to know. I didn’t know what it was when I first tried it. I thought it was some kind of a plant part. I tried it, but the feel of the stuff while I was munching on it made me think of a cockroach (ewwwww!!!) so I asked just to find out twas a pupa of a silkworm but twas too late I already swallowed the stuff (lol!)It took years before I finally “gave in” into eating “bon-de-gi”, now am a-ok about it.
