Roast crick­ets bowl me over

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts The Goss -

GOT THE BUG On TalkRa­dio this week I was given my own Bush­tucker Trial – a packet of crunchy roasted crick­ets.

Sains­bury’s is the first to sell the “de­li­cious in­sect snack”. So I tried the smoky BBQ crit­ters.

They’re said to be more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly, high in pro­tein and farm­ing them cre­ates jobs in poor ar­eas of the world. So what’s not to, er, like?

My first re­ac­tion was to gag. But once I’d popped a cou­ple in my mouth, I was pleas­antly sur­prised. As the song goes: I don’t like crick­ets… oh no… I love them.
