Dare to put horror in your hors-d'oeuvres and devour these Manchurian Scorpions. These dried arachnids are 100% edible—pinchers, thorax, and even the stinger!

The closest thing to an Alien facehugger you'll ever see in real life, these bugs have an otherworldly quality that's somewhere between menacingly terrifying and strangely fascinating. They even naturally glow under a blacklight!

If you're up for the challenge, these predators become your prey. Some say they taste like shrimp, others like a salty delicacy with its own distinct flavor. You'll just have to step up and bite in if you want to find out for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What else is in them?

Answer: The only ingredient in this "food" is 100% Manchurian Scorpion.

Question: Won't the pinchers, the stinger, and the poison harm you?

Answer: The pinchers and stinger are still on the armored arachnids, but since they're completely dried out, they're weak enough to bite through, and the venom is deactivated.
