  Yum! Yum! Yeeech!

Don't rub your eyes, you've read this correctly. You've not been to Korea if you haven't eaten one of these silkworm larvae. They're available at every street corner. You can't miss them or the odour. Just follow the salty, pungent smell and you'll see a pot of crunchy larvae simmering in their own juices.
Get crunching and train for the next Fear Factor season. They taste like dried prawns, by the way...
