The first in our range of specials, is our limited edition Halloween candy floss.
To celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday, we have taken our usual alcohol infused candy floss, turned it toxic green in colour and added a ‘treat’, or indeed a ‘trick’ depending on how you feel about Entomophagy.
If you don’t know what the word means, join the club, we had to look it up as well. The picture below might clue you in.
Still not clear? How about a close up.
Yep, that’s right folks, it means eating insects. In this case delicious crunchy crickets. And we do mean it, they are not only high in protein and minerals, and low in fat, they actually taste good. Once you get past the ick factor. They are a bit like a land based version of a shrimp. Truth be told you look at a shrimp (or prawn as we tend to call them this side of the pond), and it looks just as unappetising. But hey, turn it into a prawn cocktail and it slips down like a pint of Duckhams on a cold morning.
Some proponents of the cusine actually eat them live, we did consider that, as it would definitely have added to the ‘trick’ part of the trick or treat. Especially when you popped the lid and your food flew away, but somehow we didn’t see that going down a storm in leafy suburbia.
