Every culture on the planet has their own unique culinary tastes. What some people consider to be a delicacy will actually be disgusting to others. Perhaps the most striking example of this is when it comes to insects, bugs, and other creepy crawlies - some of which are eaten alive. There are places in the world where the local population will happily munch on edible spiders and have their own unique spider recipes that involve cooking tarantulas in all kinds of unique ways.

Obviously, the appeal of eating spiders depends largely on where a person grows up and how they view the creatures. Many in the Western world have deep fear of spiders that would likely put them off to eating these arachnids, but that is not always the case. Whether it is indigenous tribes in South America or Asian countries that turned to these yummy spiders out of necessity during times when other food was scarce, they have no problem making an arachnid meal. Here's all the ways you can eat spiders - if you dare.
