As luck would have it, the nice adult missionary couple from Bucaramanga brought some back for us. "Gee, whiz! Thanks! We'll, uh, have to try those."
And so, they have sat guiltily for a couple of weeks (do ants get better if they're aged?).
Unfortunately, the Morenos are being sent to San Gil next week, so we really, really have to eat these ants so that we can give them an honest answer.
We hope that your neighbors aren't from someplace where they eat bumble bees. Or slugs or something.
