No More Cicada Flavored Ice-Cream. Cicada? Yuck!
Ah, cicadas. They are the sounds of a hot summer night down here in the south. I don’t mind listening to them, but to eat them?
Believe me, I don’t get near them! A couple of the guys here at the station have chased me around the parking with a cicada in their hand. Yes, I scream and run away in a panic.
Looks like people in Missouri love cicadas, cicada ice-cream that is.
A public health official in central Missouri has asked an ice cream shop to cool it with the cicada ice cream, even though customers apparently can’t get enough of it.
Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream in Columbia, Mo., sold out of its only batch of the insect-filled dessert within hours of its June 1 debut.
You can read about how they made it at the link below. Frankly, I didn’t have the stomach to post it here!
What’s the grossest thing you ever ate?
