    Sainsbury's has become the first UK high street supermarket to stock edible insects.

    Barbecue-flavour roasted crickets are being put on sale in 250 stores across the country from Sunday.

    The Eat Grub's "smoky BBQ crunchy roasted crickets" are described as "crunchy in texture with a rich smoky flavour".

    Packets of the insects will cost £1.50.

    My partner's son, living in Japan, always brings back edible insect goodies along with some other "different" delicacies when he comes home. I love food.

    Do you have a favorite or one that you at first thought 'no way' and it turned out to be a nice surprise?

    Doubtless the flavor is entirely due to the sauce; the cricket contributes only crunchiness. I’ll take BBQ crisps instead, thanks.

    Quorn is a Bacteria, and they tried in many countries to pass it of as a fungi, many countries banned its sale until they changed the false advertisement, now it is a billion dollar product so bring on the Bugs.
