First edible insect farm opens in US

4 posts in this topic

A TWITCHING mass of European house crickets clings to a maze of meshed cardboard in a tent about the size of a minivan. They are inside their new home, an abandoned warehouse in Youngstown, Ohio, where they will prosper until being killed, ground into "flour" and baked into cookies and tortilla chips.

Suppose it saves on space, they take up less room than cattle.

I've eaten them (recently... on a dare... because we were going to demonstrate that they were edible to a group of kids.)

They're pretty darn bland. If you didn't know what you were eating, you would assume it was a not-very-flavorful brand of popcorn. Or very crunchy rice cakes.

Whatever the media say about them, I can't ever imagine myself eating insects.
