Fluker’s Chocolate Covered Crickets…!

Greetings, crayon fans! It's time for another Foodstuffs review -- this one of Fluker Farm's Chocolate Covered Crickets. I think this review turned out a lot better than I expected, mostly because of the luck of the draw -- I've seen, broken apart, and eaten chocolate covered crickets before, but none of them were quite as hideously photogenic as the candy used for this piece. Squeamish readers beware.

Also, as you'll see, there's a URL on the button -- that'll take you to the Fluker Farm website, where you can see that they've got a host of bug-related wares for fishing, feed, and whatever the hell else people do that requires the use of living and/or dead insects. Feel free to poke around the site even if you're not in the market for crickets and mealworms, though, as some of the stuff on there is downright weird -- not the least of which being that, if the photos on the staff page are legit, at least two of the women working for the company are pretty damned hot. There's also shit like geckos with sunglasses and humanoid lizard creatures playing poker. Yep.

Seeya next time, minna-san. 🙂

    Yup...never gonna be able to think of chocolate again without hearing the distinctive crunch of insect in my mind.

    I guess they do know where they get their butter because I want to join the I ate a bug club. About the staff: The first Richard looks like he's wearing lipstick and the second Richard looks like he's turtley enough for the turtle club.

    "As you can tell by the look on my face in the photo below, that knowledge did not fill me with glee."

    Indeed I CAN tell. Haha.

    What could have been a really gross article was actually very amusing.

    My grandpa is Richard Fluker, the owner of Fluker's Farm. Everytime me and my family would visit, we would always dare each other to eat a Chocolate Covered Cricket. But now it is no big deal. I think they are good!

    this is just gross, srry, nasty,

  • steve says:

    Crickets are about 13% protein. The reason the nutrition "facts" on the back of the package say zero protein is because it shows 0 for anything less than one, and it's measuring the protein in ONE cricket. .2 oz is about 5.67 grams, and 12.9% of that is about .73 grams. So you are getting .73 grams of protein. Eat ten of those things and you just ate about seven grams of protein. Here's more information on isect nutritional facts: http://www.ent.iastate.edu/Mis.....ition.html

    Not that anyone is going to read this ancient blog post, but whatever...

      Well, you read it, Steve -- and I thank you for it! And I all comments come to me via e-mail, so your informative comment did not go unnoticed. The clarification is much appreciated! 🙂

    Man why did you stop doing this? This is hilarious! And even though I'd probably get funny looks, I would totally wear that button around. People would just be jealous they don't have the stomach haha

    You should do a review line on weird candies
