I lived in Evansville Indiana, home of the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, for years.

Each year in October, the Nut Club's festival features tons of food.  It's where I became acquainted with and developed a love for breaded pickles.  (Sure, breaded pickles are good, but it also helped that it was DZ sorority girls selling them. But I digress...)

Like most public events, the fall festival brings some real weirdos out -- ya know, the ones that like to eat Brain Sandwiches and bugs.

I thought I escaped all that ten years ago when I left Evansville, but apparently not.

Now, bugs are packaged and even contain "Nutritional Information" on the bags.

Perhaps appropriately, as we are one week away from Halloween, a Lansing-area 2nd grader named Bloom has done a very scary thing.  She has "taken one for the team" -- walking us through the experience of eating packaged bugs.  Safe to say these are not treats, they are definitely tricks.

I haven't eaten anything but I really need a drink to get this nasty taste out of my mouth.  (I'm not sure what it is but it might be vomit.)

I won't spoil her reviews.  You can watch the whole thing here.
