Christina – first time eating insects
Edible insects are a fun new food to explore for Christina who describes her 1st encounter with entomophagy. She was pleasantly surprised with the whole idea of edible insects, even when not disguised in an cricket powder. Christina also has a great blog.

John describes his first encounter with edible insects at an edible insect dinner party as great, especially liking the high-protein Paleo Cricket Snaps. He also predicts that entomophagy will go over well with their children.
