Study: More People Will Eat Bugs if They’re Up-Marketed as Luxury Item

 

Also more people will eat bugs if they are ground into a fine powder (high in protein!) and no bug images are used on any of the packaging. 

 

 

Right now I am searching on the internet where I can purchase insects to eat. There is high potential for insects as a protein alternative to the unsustainable meat industry; I am considering and probably will soon begin eating insects. It would be a plus if they were ground into a fine powder but I would not mind consuming them whole. I will report on how this goes and I am interesting to at least try it out. My conception of this currently is that I will feel like one of our ancestors...a varied diet of nuts and seeds (I eat a lot of these), some meat, many fruits and vegetables, and now a healthy load of insects. 

 

have you checked out: http://www.crunchycr...edible-insects/

 

once you have a sense of what and how to eat with insects, depending on your region of the world you could likely farm your own supply. Crickets, mealworms, and black soldier fly larva/pupa are all farmable. Though crickets getting out and infesting the building, and black soldier flies complicated mating needs make meal worms the best choice.

Hello everyone, hope things are going well. Recently, my insects-for-consumption arrived and I am going to share with you the experience. Also, kjaggard, I have checked out Crunchy Critters, but did not purchase anything from them. Suboptimal research was performed on part; impatience was prevalent and I simply purchased some barbecue grasshoppers from Amazon. Though I intended to buy crickets, I eventually ended up getting grasshoppers. The experience goes as follows: grasshoppers arrive in the student mailroom, I open the container and put one or two in mouth, someone sees me and looks away fast, I walk back to my dorm and eat a few more. Honestly, I have not eaten too many of them because they taste like the smell of rat food, kind of like rotten cellulose matter. There is no semblance of a barbecue flavor but I guess that is okay. The grasshoppers bodies are dehydrated and crunchy. Despite the idea of this making sense, I had the conception that there would be less crunch. Unfortunately, I do not think I will buy grasshoppers again. Perhaps I will get mealworms or crickets, something will more substance and not simply the hollow shell. Anyway, hoped this helped anyone who was considering what a small facet of the future may be like. Have a nice day. 

 

Kind regards,

Trevor

I've been to Scout Summer camp where they were selling edible crickets(or grasshoppers, I don't remember which).  I just remember them basically tasting like nothing.  It was like a crunchy plain taste.  The weirdest thing was the leg that got stuck in my teeth.
