Hi, the flavor in Wilma's words: It has a subtle sweet flavor, it is fluffy & pleasant on the palate. The hardest thing is getting your head around the fact that you're eating grubs, that is both our thoughts.
A nic name for prawns is "grubs". Most of us relish prawns. Prawns are basically scavengers.
If you are what you eat, bee larvae/pupae is royal jelly, pollen & honey, in a clean pristine environment. It can't be all that bad. It's the brood that bears & honey badgers tolerate many stings for, not the honey, as some people might think.
