Forget chocolate truffles; nothing says “I Love You” more than yummy ant biscuits and cricket lollipops. These edible insects and bugs make delectable presents and treats – if you can stomach them, that is.
Try out the Cheddar Cheese Worm Crisps, which are healthy (well, they’re oven-baked) and farm-raised, and apparently taste like toasted popcorn. The chocolate-covered ant biscuits are more of a special-occasion gift, as they are coated in the “finest Belgian chocolate” and are undoubtedly nutritious (ants are great for boosting the immune system and boosting your energy – who knew?).
You can also get bamboo grubs and buffalo dung beetles – curry flavored, no less, for those of you who like spicy foods and need a bit of extra protein and fiber. And let’s not forget the cricket lollipops. These are orange flavored and have crickets and worms inside that have been reared on a diet of fresh greens and cereal. So naturally, they’re great for human consumption.
Finally, you can take your pick of soy sauce scorpion snacks, pizza-flavored toasted silkworms, and sun-dried crickets.
Have I grossed you out yet?
