And Sainz Breeze is the first UK supermarket to stock the company's crunchy roasted crickets.

Sainz Breeze insist that such food is no joke and could be a new, sustainable source of protein.

Out of curiosity, I paid a visit to Sainz Breeze as I put my hand into a packet of crickets with their tiny eyes and legs.

The idea of one going in my mouth made me feel a little sick.

But the first bite was a pleasant surprise, a little dry and lacking of taste, but at least a wing didn't get stuck in my throat.
不过第一口吃上去还是很惊喜的,有点干、没什么味道,至少没有翅膀卡在我的喉咙里。
The roasted seasoning largely overpowered any other flavour, although there was slightly bitter after taste.
虽然有点苦涩,但是烤过后的调料在很大程度上盖过了它的其他味道。

Eat Grub also recommends the crickets as a topping for noodles, soups and salads.
