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.

If there's more than 100 bug parts per 1,000,000 isn't the USDA supposed to get involved?

Bug flour is about $1.00 and wheat flour is about $0.11 per ounce.

At $15.99/15 ounces, it isn't catfood cheap, but I guess it is cheaper than chips. Put me down for a bag.

The main problem I have with eating insects is that this so-called sustainable, cheaply producable, ideal-for-the-third-world food is always so bleedin' expensive! If they ever produce an insect food that is comparable in price to chicken, pork or beef, I'll be among the first to try it. Hell, even if it's only as expensive as lamb, I'd still be willing to give it a go once - after all, I buy lamb occasionally, though not often. But insects, right now, are about as "cheap" and "sustainable" as saffron. Sorry, I'm not hipstery enough to pay through that large a nose for the latest food fad.
