Anty Gin

We have explored the idea of eating insects here on WU. Well, how about drinking them? Anty Gin is gin infused with the essence of wood ants. So, wood alcohol bad, wood ant alcohol good(?).

The Entopod

Perhaps you weren't eating bugs because it wasn't easy enough to prepare them. Well, now there's the Entopod. Designed by Edinburgh student Courtney Yule, the Entopod is a "starter kit" for eating bugs. It includes a grinder for making insect flour, detachable containers for heating the insecto-food in the oven, and more! She hopes it will encourage people to experiment with "entomophagy." More info at BBC News.

Chirps Cricket Chips

Available now for pre-order. They're chips made of cricket flour. I'd be willing to try them because from what I've heard crickets don't taste bad at all. And if they don't look anything like crickets, all the better! Though I have a hard time imagining these will ever go mainstream.
