Edible Insects

Has anyone here ever been trained to eat insects in a survival situation? I'm curious in case I get in a situation where I have no food.

Never had to eat one, but from what I have read, stay away from bugs that have very bright colors, obnoxious smells, or extremely bitter tastes.
I definitly wouldn't think twice about eating an insect that had an obnoxious smell. What is it about the bright colored ones? Does it mean something specific? I guess you would also want to watch out for the ones with stingers!
Bright colors in nature usually serve as a warning to predators that the potential meal is toxic
