Well, once I got over the fact that I WAS EATING WORMS, they were quite pleasant. They were paired with some asian flavours and the worms themselves were crunchy with a nutty flavour. So, yes, quite nice, but I am not sure I am desperate to go back for seconds.
No not alive (thank goodness!). I was fine ordering them, thought it would be fun, but when it came to eating them, I struggled at first. Oh well, now when I am lost in the bush I will know how to eat well!
