This one's for Mytho (have we got a competitive food eating thread?)

I do watch Beard Meats Food occasionally.
That place in the video is not that far from where my Dad grew up.

The European Union has given the green light for two more species of insect to be used as food for humans.

As of Tuesday, a powdered form of Acheta domesticus — better known as the house cricket — will be given the green light for human consumption within the European Union, documents from the body have confirmed.

This is soon to be followed by further approval for the sale and consumption of the larval form of Alphitobius diaperionus — also known as the lesser mealworm — which will be given the green light for human consumption in frozen, paste, dried and powder forms within the European Union later this week.

Sometimes, knowing that we can doesn't mean we should...I 'appen ter like my housebound crickets - and they happen to like my laundry and bathroom.
