I’ve got a back log of pictures to upload. I’ll start with this.
Chocolate chip cricket cookies. With the crickets on top. Tasted like chips ahoy with the knowledge that you’re eating a critter with it. I could taste exoskeleton a few hours after eating this too.. Even though it tasted fine, knowing that you’re eating a bug definitely brought up the gag reflex.
I also tried a chocolate covered waxworm. It exploded in my mouth with this.. dusty sunflower taste. Turns out they are deep fried in oil. I now have this weird association of certain granola and sunflower seeds with the taste of waxworm.
