Insects on the Menu
Humans have a long history of eating insects, and it turns out that they can be a very nutritious part of a person's regular diet. Insects have a lot of protein, and they are often easier to catch than prey animals. Therefore, it is no wonder that when our ancient ancestors saw some tasty worms or grubs wiggling on the ground, they made a quick snack of them.
In Thailand, insects are a regular part of the street food that can be found. The different insects that people snack on are crickets, grasshoppers, giant water bugs, and assorted worms. They are often deep-fried and salted, so they have a crunchy texture that makes them a perfect snack food. If you can get past the fact that you are eating a cricket, it will crunch in your mouth just like a corn chip!
For a lot of people, however, it is difficult to get over the fear of eating insects. People tend to see insects as invaders, especially when they are crawling on the food that we are about to eat. Therefore, being able to eat insects without feeling disgusted is cultural. Some people cannot eat French cheese or stinky tofu because they weren't brought up doing so. To many of us, insects fall right into that category, making it difficult to even try them.
If given the chance, though, be courageous. Insects can be nutritious and tasty, so long as you can get over the "yuck” factor.

A. They are very easy to find close to the home.
B. They are more nutritious than most vegetables.
C. They come in all shapes and sizes.
D. They are easier to catch than other prey animals.
27. Why are deep-fried insects considered a perfect snack food?
A. Because they taste exactly like corn chips.
B. Because they don't fill you up.
C. Because they have a crunchy texture.
D. Because they are not expensive.

A. Water bugs. B. Grasshoppers. C. Beetles. D. Crickets.
29. According to the passage, where are insects a regular part of the street food?
