insects munch a bucket

What a classy snack to eat after a roller coaster ride!
Chocolate ant wafer biscuits, cheese and bacon flavoured crickets and chocolate covered larvae are not be among the average sweet shop’s pic ‘n’ mix selection.

But a Surrey theme park is offering the snacks – which contain real dried insects – in traditional pink and white paper bags as a trial.

Chessington World of Adventures will be asking guests to taste the creepy crawly goodies on Friday when they will be dished out free of charge. If the feedback proves positive, the edible insects will go on sale in a new Asian-themed area of the park which is due to open in March.

General Manager David Smith, said: ”I have tried the sample snacks and I think if you can exercise mind over matter you will find that they are actually quite tasty.
