Edible Insects - Grub

Here at The Amazing Blog, we like to believe that we’re adventurous people. So, when we came across Grub, a unique UK food company offering edible insects, we decided to give them a try.

Now, this snack is definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart, so we apologise if the title startled you a little bit—but it’s actually not as bad as it seems! In fact, it’s actually pretty tasty. Admittedly, we did hesitate for a moment when we opened the package, but as soon as you try one, you might even find yourself going back for more (we certainly did).

So far we’ve only tried the flavoured roasted crickets, but Grub also offers fudge with crickets for snacking as well. And if you’re more interested in the culinary side of things, Grub provides unflavoured mealworms, grasshoppers, bull worms, and crickets along with a variety of tasty recipes for each of them. If you’re unsure of where to begin, there’s also a starter pack for your convenience. So why even bother eating insects, you might ask? Well it’s not as strange as you might think. Roasted insects are a staple in people’s diets all over the world. They’re incredibly high in nutrition and they’re sustainable too! Some even say that it’s the food of the future.
