Eating bugs

The Bible allows for eating locusts, crickets and grasshoppers. Jacobs orders some chocolate covered crickets and shares them with a friend. In Oaxaca, Mexico crickets or "grillos" are a staple of the diet. People sell them by the kilo in the open-air markets. I ate some at a restaurant, where they were put out on the table as a matter of course for snacking. They were not chocolate covered. I should add that I had spent the morning touring a mezcal factory and drank some mezcal right out of the still before going to lunch.
