Terminix is in the business of dealing with bugs and for February 14th, the pest control provider is offering an alternative kind of Valentine's Day chocolates in the form of chocolate-covered insects. Inspired by the "love bug," Terminix is sharing chocolate-covered crickets in Instagram-ready, heart-shaped boxes with winners.
Rather than removing pests from the homes of consumers, this Valentine's Day initiative from the company will see chocolate-covered edible insects sent straight to the homes of winning participants. To take part in the online sweepstakes, fans are able to enter for their chance to receive a most unforgettable Valentine's Day surprise that is ready to be shared with a loved one.
A rich source of sustainable protein, edible insects are becoming embraced by consumers in everything from cookies to snack bars.
