  1. You are amazing, this was really an eye opener for me. I would love if you could come to my school. Unfortunately I live in Sweden haha

  2. Hi we are doing a presentation at our school on entomophagy and we were going to make cookies with cricket flour. We are having some trouble finding edible crickets for humans (not reptiles) online that are not chocolate covered. Do you know of anywhere we can purchase freeze dried or roasted crickets for human consumption online?

    • Hello Mimi,

      To tell you the truth, most of us entomophagists do not distinguish between insects meant for reptiles and those meant for humans, as most are raised in a similar fashion, on the same foods, etc. I understand, though – I was freaked out about it at first, too, until I tried a bunch, and asked around, and realized there weren’t significant differences.

      If you absolutely must have “food-grade” crickets, call up the Hotlix company: (805) 473-0596, and ask for a bag of plain dried crickets (these are not offered for sale on the site, you have to call and ask – tell ’em I sent ya). They are more expensive than live crix, and taste different since they’ve been pre-dried, but they are meant for human consumption.

      Alternatively, check out http://www.Worldentomophagy.com, where they sell organic, food-grade mealworms and mealworm flour.

      Best of luck on your project!
