When we arrived for our stall at the Southampton Sustainability Festival today, the organisers told us how excited they were to see what food we had brought along. It’s always great to speak to people who are enthusiastic!
A lot of people who came to the stall had never tried bugs before. Some were nervous, but they told us that the roasted mealworms tasted a bit like crisps or nuts.
The sausage rolls are 50% pork, 50% mealworm, but they taste just like regular sausage rolls!
A couple who visited the stall told us that they eat mopane worms in their home country, but they were unsure about trying something new. It was nice when they came back later on to buy some Thai buffalo worm fritters, and gave us a thumbs up!
