Grasshopper Burgers 

Insect burgers, will they fly or flop?

(August 2017) Non yet available in Italy, but our neighbors in Switzerland  have just authorized sales of edible insects. The delicacies are imported, but plans for domestic production are in the works by Swiss company Essento.

Mealworm,  crickets and grasshoppers are the main ingredients of hamburgers, meatballs and specialties mixed with rice and beans. Swiss authorities have approved sales and the products will be sold at Coop supermarkets from August 21.

Who knows, maybe it will be a revolution in European cuisine!
