This blog is about my experiences as an underground food journalist in Southeastern United States and sometimes beyond. It is designed to educate you about what food is growing here; who is growing it; and who is cooking it or making it into alcohol. Occasionally this blog is about people who use green tech related to food.

Delicious Edible Bugs, Hotlix® Inc.
Bugs are delicious to eat. They are full of protein and fats
and are tasty alternatives to empty nutrient snack foods. If you’ve thought
about tasting some then a good place to start is with some from California
Edible bugs for dinner?

I bought some a few years ago at the South Florida Fair. This year I bought flavored Larvets in BBQ flavor and Crick-ettes in
Salt N’ Vinegar flavor.
The larvets were crunchy with a mild BBQ popcorn flavor. I
have not tried the crickets yet but from past experiences of eating chocolate
covered crickets I’m sure these salt n’ vinegar ones will be just as good.
You can buy these bugs and others online at Hotlix®Inc.or at many novelty events and stores around
