Bacon & Cheese Grasshoppers In A Can

Whether you’re the super adventurous type, or maybe just slightly insane, I’ve got a treat for you. A company in Thailand is offering these delectable treats, along with many more.

Thailand is long known for eating bugs, and as many Thais moved throughout the globe, they still wanted to eat bugs. So a Thai entrepreneur started canning and exporting the bugs in a variety of flavors. Yup, flavored bugs in a can! The latest is bacon and cheese grasshoppers.

If you’re got a hankering for the creepy crawlies, it’ll cost you $40 for a box of 7 cans. The product comes from Thailand, and the manufacturing facility is registered with the Thai FDA (Food & Drug Administration) and the US FDA and has passed GMP (Good Food manufacturing). All individual food products are tested and registered with FDA, so it sounds like they’ve gotten the green light for consumption here in the United States.

Other Tasty Bug Treats In A Can To Try

If bacon and cheese flavored grasshoppers aren’t your thing, give a few of these other tasty bug treats a try:

  • BBQ Bamboo Worms
  • Nori Seaweed Armor Tail Scorpions
  • Salted Queen Weaver Ants
  • Sour Cream & Onion Dung Beetles
  • Wasabi House Crickets
  • Giant Waterbug Chili Paste

Someone will have to let me know how the Sour Cream and Onion Dung Beetles taste… I wonder what kind of cleaning process the dung beetles go through before being canned!?! I mean, they spend there lives playing with balls of crap.

Happy New Year’s!
