One of the reasons I enjoy living in the student residence here is that there are people from all over the world, and it seems like everyone is always sharing something new from where they are from. Case in point: Jose recently brought back chapulines (grasshoppers) from Mexico. Now, I had them once before earlier this semester, when Eduardo brought some back (along with some fried worms). But those were tiny ones... you take a pinch and have 20 or 30 at once. These were large ones. They fry them and season them before serving. I'd compare them to peanuts, salty and crunchy. Jose came back from Mexico with one of those wonderful anonymous plastic baggies, full of them. Not bad at all I must say.
