Cricket snack - Acheta domestica

The Science:

There are more than 900 species of cricket, distributed worldwide, and the cricket has been a fixture in human culture since ancient times. Considered lucky, raised as pets or for sport (cricket-fighting is popular in China), or incorporated into popular culture, these mostly small insects have been inspiring us with their chirping probably as long as we have existed. In English we tend to distinguish between the cricket and other members of Orthoptera, such as the grasshopper or locust, but many of these insects are eaten all around the world. In many places around Asia, Africa and the Middle East crickets are sold as a fried or roasted snack, and the eating of insects for protein is a much more sustainable practice than the raising of cattle for food.

The Story:

The humble House Cricket Acheta domestica is easy to raise and turns out to be quite edible. “Crickettes” are a classic Evolution Store item, and are consistently popular with our customers. These crunchy Cricket Snacks are a fine way to add some protein to your diet. They come in three savory flavors: Bacon & Cheese, Salt & Vinegar, and Sour Cream & Onion... Try ‘em all, and don’t forget to share ‘em with your friends!

    The crickets arrived safely and mostly attached. This was my first time trying out crickets and they tasted salty, vinegary, and nutty! I want more but the amount i got here was too small for it to be a regularly ordered item for me.

    I was a little apprehensive about tasting the crickets, but they taste like nuts (with salt and vinegar). A cool new snack and a nice source of protein.
