BRITISH SUPERMARKET INTRODUCES EDIBLE INSECTS IN UK FIRST
Sainsbury's has become the first supermarket in the UK to introduce edible bugs.
The barbequed flavoured bugs will be sold in 250 stores across the country from tomorrow.
Rachel Eyre, head of future brands at Sainsbury’s, said: "Insect snacks should no longer be seen as a gimmick or something for a dare, and it’s clear that consumers are increasingly keen to explore this new sustainable protein source.
"We’re always looking to provide our customers with new and exciting products, and with the growing interest in edible insects we’re excited to be the first UK supermarket to make these products easily accessible for shoppers across the country."
Or we could see them as sentient beings who shouldn't be eaten...
