Jungle Bugs Don’t Taste Like Chicken

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – No matter how you slice it, jungle insects don’t taste like chicken.

So says comedienne Angela V. Shelton – half of the famous VH1 Frangela duo – who was the first star eliminated from I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! last Thursday (Jun. 4).

To survive the Costa Rican jungle Shelton ate plenty of bugs, but despite popular belief, the critters don’t taste anything like chicken.

She says they simply “taste like bugs,” but when you’re hungry you get over it and start appreciating the insects for their protein.

Still, she admits the potent bug taste lingers for days afterwards, but she’d rather eat them before they eat her.

Shelton says the bug bites were the worst part of the celebrity survival challenge and made everyone “crazy itchy.”

She’s now nursing her bites with copious amounts of calamine lotion – a small price to pay for being back in civilization.

The next episode of I’m a Celebrity... airs tonight (Jun. 8) on NBC.
