GROSS!!! Edible leafcutter ants and tarantula for realz!
There is a type of leafcutter ant called Atta laevigata. It is a delicacy in many parts of Northern South America, and has been since pre-Columbian (and that is pre-Christopher Columbus, not the country) time. These ants - the largest type of leafcutter ant in the world - are thought to be aphrodisiacs, and are therefore quite a common wedding gift. They also make a nice snack, which is why we bring you Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants.
Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants hold two secrets. One, they are very high in protein and low in saturated fat. Two, they have a very unique taste. And C, they are commonly called (by those in the know): “hormigas culonas.” That roughly translates into “big ass ants” - so named for the size of their abdomen, but also appropriate for today’s slang. Giant Toasted Leafcutter Ants - get ‘em now, while the gettin’ is good.

Almost everyone on planet Earth, one way or another, is scared of spiders. There are many ways to conquer arachnophobia (the fancy name for said fear of spiders). But there is one method that we like better than any other: eat your fear. Literally. Just get an Oven-Baked Tarantula and eat the thing that frightens you.
Right now you’re wondering if this tarantula is real. Yup! Every Oven-Baked Tarantula is baked in its native Cambodia, and collected from monitored sources (to protect the tarantula’s natural population). Each one is baked, crunchy, and just a little hairy - but ready to eat right out of the package. Just don’t forget to remove the fangs first. Then, enjoy your yummy Cambodian delicacy - your very own Oven-Baked Tarantula. Sorry, Jimmy.
Please note: The main picture above obviously shows a pre-baked tarantula. We just wanted to give you a taste, so to speak, as we get pictures of the real thang up.
