My birthday party last weekend was pretty great, with lots of mescal as you ma have read. Of course I brought out some snacks as well. No potato chips this time, but chocolate covered crickets hat I bought in San Francisco and had saved for just such a special occasion. Surprisingly though my friends actually wanted to try. I guess I’m rubbing off on them.
First thing I thought was that the pieces were rather small, but then again we’re talking crickets not grasshoppers. Then when I tried one I was hit with an amazing dark chocolate. Probably the best chocolate I ever got in the States. And yes, there was a crisp and a crunch inside, but nothing that tasted strange. The only thing was that every so often you’d have a bit in your mouth that would kind of stick around unwanted. Otherwise a great little snack.
