Hand toasted Giant Queen Leafcutter Ants coated in the finest Belgian Chocolate. Every spring when the rains come in Colombia the Guane Indians collect the new Queens when they are emerging from their underground nests, only one Queen Ant is needed in a colony so the new Queens have to leave. The Indians have been collecting these ants every spring when they fly from their nests to toast in a clay pot over an open fire for centuries, and they are considered a rare delicacy. The ants are also nutritious and tasty and are said to be good for boosting your immune system, because they are rich in formic acid. They can also give you a mini energy boost.
Not bad for a bushtucker trial, although they might actually taste quite nice.
They are a nutty and tasty treat. In fact they are our most popular product!

Intially a crunchy and lush chocolate bite, yum! Before you swallow you will likely regret the mad decision to eat an ant, let alone one covered in chocolate - "did i really just eat an insect; all those legs, mandibles, thorax.. formic acid ****... But wait! It tastes ok.. Lulled into a false sense of comfort by the chocolate again...sick acidic after taste.!
Great practical joke - delicacy my ***.
