Bush Tucker Trials Made Fun in the Home with the Launch of These Unique Edible Insect Packs

The sight of celebrities gagging in darkest Australia may be gruesome fun for many watching, yet the idea does little justice to the rapidly expanding market for highly-nutritious and extremely low fat edible insects.

South West, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 June 2014

Edible Unique, one of the country’s leading suppliers to restaurants, bars, and other food service companies, now offers the chance to enjoy a wide range of tasty edible bugs, worms, beetles, larvae and more in the home, thanks to their online ordering facility at http://www.EdibleUnique.com.

Edible insects made fun!

A bowlful of toasted Weaver Ants, Bamboo Worms, Mole Crickets and the like is an increasingly popular way to liven up a party or barbecue. However, that’s only the start of the story. Everyone loves chocolate, so what better way than to match it with the good principles of healthy eating than by enjoying a crunchy bug of insects that’s been dipped in rich chocolate? Kids (and adults) of all ages love lollies – which is why Edible Unique include a scorpion in candy treat in their expanding range.

Who eats edible insects – and why?

It has been estimated that at least one out of every two humans on the planet consumes edible bugs, in some form, as part of their diet. This is due to their plentiful availability, especially in southern Asia and The Americas, and their low fat, high protein, nutrient rich chemistry. Open-air markets throughout Thailand, and elsewhere, sell many such items including grasshoppers, silkworms, and water bugs – all of which are part of the Edible Unique catalogue.

Changing attitudes

The company owners appreciate that eating insects is not for everyone. As they comment: “Some folk will never try them, we know that. However, we’re finding increasing numbers of people, of all ages, who are willing to experience different taste sensations. A surprisingly large number become regular customers.” They reckon part of the reason is through exposure in programmes like “I’m a Celebrity...” and those where people test themselves in remote and hostile environments. It’s also true that an increasing number of restaurants are adding them to their menus.
