Insects and arachnids are being hailed as an solution to the problem of a growing population. Fraser Lewry tucked in to some segmented delicacies

 

Larvae of the misleadingly named mealworm. Known to infest bakeries and granaries when not being cooked up for adventurous diners

Waxworm larvae, toasted weaver ants and crickets. Presentation is as important with insects as it might be with a trio of delicious puddings

Silkworm pupae. High in protein, calcium, nutrients, vitamins and minerals and other essential fatty acids. Low in taste

Chocolate scorpions have a pleasingly familiar, wafer-like texture. And they're available at Fortnum & Mason's

A cricket. The Cambodians say they taste like popcorn. And, like popcorn, they also get stuck in your teeth

Waxworm larvae: has a natural sweetness, as the wax moth lays its eggs in beehives, where the growing larvae then feeds on wax and honey. Yummy

A chocolate scorpion. Made out of scorpion, and chocolate. In Beijing, they're sold to tourists on sticks, minus the chocolate

The Romans probably ate locusts. This picture demonstrates the likely technique
