King Cake With CRICKETS? Yep, It's A Real Thing,

WBRZ News 2 - With Carnival season going into full swing, many in Louisiana are looking to satiate themselves with King Cakes of all shapes, sizes and flavors.

But a bizarre option exists for those with a more "adventurous" palate: The Cricket King Cake.

And yes, it is exactly what it sounds like, a King Cake filled with roasted crickets and topped off with a batch of the insects for good measure. ("Experts" say this roasted treat tastes like...sunflower seeds.)


As of now, the only place in South Louisiana that offers the "enhanced" signature delicacy of Mardi Gras is the Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans. Anyone feeling courageous enough can sample it in the museum's Bug App├ętit kitchen through Lundi Gras.

Personally, I think I'll pass.
