Though this was already a month ago, the idea of what just happened grosses me out. I went to visit Brazil with a couple friends and I tried the Sapote fruit. This is what it looks like (very similar to a mamey):
But ewww... when I was a bit more than halfway, I noticed a couple maggots deep around it (some dead and others still moving). Needless to say I think that's the most disgusting thing that ever. To think that I must have accidentally chew and swallow them without even noticing it... grosssssssssss.

It's not so bad. Eating bugs - including maggots - is commonplace in much of the world. It is a lean protein. Think about eggs! You are eating placentas that were in a chicken's vagina. Back to maggots, they are very useful too. For many kinds of wounds, they'll put lots of maggots on the wound to eat the dead skin and help prevent infection.
