they’re tater tots
One American company is trying to get us to eat bugs.
Entom Foods aims to make Americans feel more comfortable eating bugs by removing elements that turn many people off — eyes, wings, legs, and crunchy exoskeletons. Eventually, the company hopes to produce processed bug-based foods, such as insect cutlets. Krisiloff hopes marketing the insects in a familiar form will remove the “ick” factor and encourage more people to add insects to their diets.
The company plans to market insects like crickets, mealworms, and grasshoppers, which are already farmed commercially for use as animal feed.
That is so disgusting. Just NO.
There’s nothing fucking wrong with this! You are STRENGTHENING the stereotype!
MANY cultures ROUND THE WORLD eat bugs as part of their daily life. And I’m not talking 3rd Wold Countries or people living in jungles. There is nothing “wrong”, “unclean” or “unsafe” about eating bugs. They’re perfectly healthy for you as a source of protein.
Hey, do you like seafood? DO you like crab, lobster or shrimp?
CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE EATEN THE AQUATIC VERSION OF A BUG.
HEY have some RESEARCH:
Even AMERICANS eat bugs, oh yes!
I’ve had crickets before, they were pretty tasty.
Edible insects are high in protein and low in fat and are an extremely healthy food. I encourage you all to check out the links this helpful person has provided for more information. Trying to break the western stereotype of bugs as bad, dirty and frightening things is what this blog is all about!
I’d be curious to taste bugs. Haven’t had the opportunity to, so far. :Uc
I guess antenaes always threw me off a bit, but I love to taste new things haha
still I don’t really like bugs :c
