Odd food! Hotlix blueberry ant lollipop!

I have mentioned before how I am no stranger to eating bugs. I have never tried ants before though, and a rainy sunday afternoon seemed a perfect time to change this, seeing as I was gifted a selection of insect candy following my garlic bread and pasty sticks of rock encounter.     Looks a delight doesn't it. …
