BIZARRE FOOD'S ANDREW ZIMMERN AND HIS CRICKETS ARE A QUALIFIED HIT

Thanks to Andrew Zimmern and his Travel Channel program Bizarre Foods, the crickets he sent me continue to be a hit with some of my friends. I think he earned some interested new viewers as well.

Rick tasted both the salt and vinegar crick-ettes and the bacon and cheese crickets. Rob ate some more. Here are their videoed testimonies.

I took the crick-ettes to my physical therapy session and offered them to any takers. One man took the remaining bacon and cheese crick-ettes home with him. The office’s intern, Emily, said, “Not as crunchy as I thought. It tasted like salt and vinegar cardboard with the texture of a cheese doodle puff. Not bad. Thank you.”

At my birthday barbecue, Brian popped one of the salt n’ vinegar crick-ettes into his mouth, and here is what he had to say:

I have a few crick-ette “crumbs” left, and I am going to see if I can find at least one more hearty and adventurous soul.
