When Insider shared this video clip online my immediate reaction was to squirm but then I also had to be honest and admit that I would try coconut worms. I would rather not try them whilst they are moving in the bowl.
Coconut worms are a delicacy in Vietnam 🇻🇳 pic.twitter.com/snnXRIlB55— INSIDER (@thisisinsider) May 28, 2019
They look so juicy and moreish and upon sharing my desire to try them (in a different way) one of my favourite twitter buddy‘s actually mentioned that there is a similar delicacy in Congo called Mpose in which the worms are fried and seasoned. Now that is a dish that I would love to try! I can imagine that they would be quite buttery in texture and fatty but in a good way. Here’s a video of Mpose.
What do you think? Would you try either of these dishes?
