Chocolate-Covered Bug Dystopia

September 15th, 2011 by Rosa

Via Chow.com, a Telegraph story about how the European Union has spent/is spending millions of Euros to investigate the nutritional qualities of bugs as food. For humans. For when we’ve destroyed the Earth and must turn to bugs for sustenance.

Their taste test reviewed chocolate-covered scorpions and honeybee creme brulee. I’ll have to admit, the latter doesn’t sound too bad, though it’s probably because my brain is skipping over the “bee” part and parsing it as “honey creme brulee”.

I recently finished the Hunger Games Trilogy (highly recommended page turners; especially the first in the series), so I’ve had dystopias on my mind. I guess any dystopia that still has chocolate isn’t so bad.
