I was “up north” and my daughter-in-law said, “You know they sell crickets at the candy store in town.”
Crickets? Definitely a new food.
So Liz and I headed for the candy store to buy chocolate and …. I mean crickets.
They had two different kinds: salt and vinegar or bacon and cheese.
We chose the salt and vinegar box.
Once home we slid the bugs onto the table and did our taste test.
Jacob was the first one to try …
His comment was that all he could taste was crunchiness and salt.
I ate one and agreed.
Jeff then ate one and said it was like eating a salt-and-vinegar peanut shell – which was a good description.
I asked him how he would rate it from 1-10.
Jeff’s response – “In comparison to other bugs, I’d give it a 10 because I’ve never eaten a bug before, but compared to other food, I’d give it a 2.”
