Giant roasted ants

Giant roasted ants

As they say anout Giant roasted ants:

“Have them on toast or maybe a quick snack. These ants are giants compared to our native ants and actually have pea sized abdomens, so you will have to chew before you swallow. Harvested by Guane Indians in Columbia they are then toasted with salt in a mud pot. They apparently have a similar taste to crispy bacon with an earthy taste, although we doubt these will replace a few slices of bacon between a crusty bit of bread. Enough in a pack to last a few bushtucker trials or two sandwiches.”

Yours to shop, serve and enjoy. £13,99 per bag from British Lazybone web shop.

Bacon chocolate


A small Austrian chocolate factory named Zotter produces a delightful chocolate bar that contains real roasted pig fat.

Here’s a quote from the product description of this treat:
“Palate wonder. Greaves are roasted in a crispy fashion and then caramelized. Refined with a hazelnut nougat and a coating made of dark chocolate.”

Bacon chocolate can be ordered directly from the manufacturers internet-shop for the price of €2,90 per bar. The selection of Zotter chocolates contains also such hit chocolate products as “Beer chocolate” and “mountain cheese (bergkäse) chocolate”, so be sure to check out those as well!
