Crunchy Bug Cornflakes Anyone??

Last week the Senior School went to the Roxy Theatre to watch "Bugs", a very interesting documentary that looked at how insects are an important source of food and the many different types of bugs people eat around the world 

As a cheap, sustainable, rich source of protein locusts, also known as grasshoppers, are a popular food source around the world and are even considered a delicacy in many countries.  

New Zealand has a few species of native locusts, some of them are even bred to be eaten. We decided to order up a storm of locusts to try them ourselves. 

The feedback from the brave students who chomped on a bug is that they were very crunchy and tasted a little “like chicken”.
