    I don’t know... the cheaper one comes in a silver can and the more expensive one comes in a gold. Is this one of those times where we shouldn’t settle for the imitation product? Lol!

  4. I’ve eaten tarantula in Beijing and it really doesn’t taste good. Although the one I tried seemed to be Cyriopagopus hainanus so for all I know albostriatus tastes better.

    In any case I felt guilty after trying it, but the experience was interesting
  5. Ah!
    The difference I saw was that one tin was barbeque flavoured and the other tin just salted -- both were dehydrated or freeze-dried or something (didn't save the link, just noticed they had 5 of the 'salted' flavour and then only one left an hour later (after this thread). I never even noticed tin colour. The labels looked the same, except for flavour description.
    [Found the link -- 6 in stock now -- guess seller added a few more tins due to new sudden AB demand for product... Or maybe the buyers felt guilty and canceled their orders. lol]

    A few years ago, I watched a youtube documentary-style show of a woman in Cambodia who made her living selling seasoned and fried Ts as street food -- it looked like a LOT of work for her (and her kids), but it allowed her to make a living. Since they were seasoned/fried Ts, they probably tasted better. (Hers were WC)

    And....? My point still stands.

    Here in the Netherlands, we don't fish for food. We catch a fish, weigh it, and put it back in the water again. The fish species that are abundant in the North Sea and Wadden sea can be eaten since their population isn't affected. You don't fish for killing if that leads to dangerous decline of the species.

    Not sure how fishing works in other countries, but while I dislike some aspects of fishing over here, I have to admit that fishing organizations put a lot of money and effort to breeding and releasing young fish into rivers and streams, keeping fishing sustainable.
