Some courageous people at the Albuquerque Aquarium feasted on pizza and spaghetti Sunday evening.

The catch: The food was filled with bugs.

There was plenty to choose from including mealworm meatballs, cricket pizza, and snail sliders.

Some people even chose to eat the bugs by themselves. One woman desperately tried to choke down a grasshopper.

And our own KOB Eyewitness News 4 photographer had the cameras turned on him as he tried a grasshopper. And one kid really enjoyed the spread.

"I like the crickets," he said. "I just like them plain, the ones without the legs. They tasted kind of like little chicken bites."
