Looking for some unusual foods? An online Thai company is offering specialty foods that feature insects. Care for a vodka with a scorpion, centipede, or tarantula in it? They’ve got it. While it sounds crazy for most of us Westerners, alcohol that contains herbs or various bugs or snakes are commonly used in Thailand for medicinal purposes.
The website, Thailandunique.com, also has packets of hard-to-get items like cricket flour (can be used in place of regular flour in baking), chocolate covered scorpions, insect candy, and even canned tarantulas, in case you are cooking up something really special.
