Happy National Chocolate-Covered Insects Day!

For the brave lovers of chocolate-covered insects, this day is for you!  I think I’ll sit this one out.  Most people think chocolate-covered ants taste like chocolate-covered popcorn and I would probably be willing to give them a try, but chocolate-covered grasshoppers or beetles… I don’t think so.

If you’re one of the brave, let us know what you tried and what it tasted like. I’m curious!

Want to celebrate?  Try throwing a fear factor party and invite your friends to try chocolate-covered insects with you.
