I'll Need More Hot Sauce, Please

Health department bugs out over grasshopper tacos – Eatocracy - Blogs: "Yesterday it was cicadas in the ice cream. Today's taboo is grasshoppers in the tacos - but there's a difference.

While Sparky's frozen critter crisp dessert was invented on a lark, 'tacos de chapulines' are a popular cart and bar snack in Mexico City, Oaxaca and even in certain parts of the United States. Devotees cite the cooked bugs' appealing crunch and protein content - said to be twice that of beef."

Obviously, the Health Department personnel never watch "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel. 75% of the shows are about cultures where insects are a staple food.
