“For centuries Insect consumption has been part of the everyday diet of many of the world’s human inhabitants from the Aborigines of Australia and their favoured delicacy of Witjutie grubs to the night markets of Thailand where crisp, fried Locusts and Beetles are favourite snacks to be consumed with an ice cold beer! We in the west have closed our minds to Insect eating (also known as Entomophagy) but In doing so have forgotten that these are one of the most nutritious foods available, higher in protein levels than chicken and cholesterol free. All of these Insects are grown specially for Human Consumption and meet all strict health and safety guidelines.”

Does anyone know who is responsible for this design?

    I saw these at selfridges when I was in London a couple years ago. They’re pretty awesome and I wish I had bought the scorpion lollypop. Here are a few pictures I took of the products on the shelf:

    Haha. Went and checked out the page and found the “Giant Toasted Ants”. The native name is Hormigas Culonas. Literally “big ass ants”. :D

    $100/gram is kinda steep though. o_0

    And I’ve always been intrigued by Giant Japanese Hornets. Vicious little buggers. I’ve sworn off of visiting Japan every since I learned about them. Haha.
