I Like Big (Ant) Butts

For centuries people in northern Colombia have been eating hormiga culona, or big-butt queen ants, not just for the taste, but because they think it’s an aphrodisiac and wards off cancer. Of course if you buy them at Harrods in London — which you can — they’re hand-dipped in Belgian chocolate and will run you $8 for a half dozen. The first crunch is said to taste like popcorn, then you get a spurt of juices and swallow the legs. Can McAnts, Dunkin’ Ants, and a tie-in with ipecac be far behind?
