National Chocolate Covered Insect Day
Posted on October 14, 2011
Today is National Chocolate Covered Insect day. You’ve probably consumed your fair share of bugs during your lifetime — either as a kid stuffing dirt in your mouth or last week when you yawned while riding around on your bike. No need to panic — most insects are edible and in fact quite nutritious. They give you an extra protein boost.
So embrace today’s weirdness and try one. Halloween is only a few weeks away, so there is no better way to surprise your loved one than with a box of creepy crawly chocolates.
For a few tasty bug options, check out Sciencebostore, Groovycandies or Fluke farms. You can get yourself an “I ate bug club” button while you’re at it.
