Apparently for years the UN has been attempting to get the western world interested in eating insects. Specifically cockroaches. Say what you will about the little pests, but they are literally walking, or scurrying rather, sources of protein. They are easy to come by and they reproduce in lightning fast numbers. China has already had success with cockroach farms. But is it bias to say because its kind of normal and accepted in their culture?
Eating insects goes back many years an a lot of cultures. Except our own. Some are even considered to be delicacies, and it is very common to walk through eastern countries markets and find many species of insects prepared and marinated for eating. So do you think the trend will ever catch on here as it has in other countries? Would you try one? Ive had chocolate covered ants before and they weren’t bad, not that i’m going to go out and start ordering them on my ice cream, but I think if taken slowly the trend could catch on.
