I never would have guessed that Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants were available in snack pack form until I saw it myself. ThinkGeek is selling this insect snack pack that is said to be high in protein and low in saturated fat.

These Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants are a delicacy in Colombia. Each ant measures almost an inch long and is described as tasting "unique." I'm willing to try anything that is healthy at least once even (if it did formerly crawl around on the forest floor).
