I woud never eat anything while it was still alive.
Oh my god, I didn't even know something like this existed . There is no freaking way I would bite on this tiny little alive creature. The thought of it makes me itch !
The only time I come into contact with insects is by accident. So no, not only could I not bite into a honey ant but I can even imagine wanting to touch it.
"When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
And maybe try a few....
The bare necessities of life will come to you!"

Hmm well. I don't know. My gut instinct says no but I tried all sorts of weird and disgusting sounding foods in Singapore that the Chinese consider delicacies, so maybe I would give it a go. No harm in trying, right?!
No I wouldn't!
No way!
As a vegetarian I don't think it is sport to crunch on a live creature.
No I wouldn't do it.
Only because they are living, and that would totally not be something I could do.
I'm a vegetarian and a firm believer in "live and let live"
Depends on its' level of formic acid would be my only concern.
If STARVING, wouldn't hesitate to eat it. Or any other food source, for that matter.
i don't think i would but just maybe because i would to see if it taste as sweet as honey.
