The Story of The Boy Who Ate the Cricket

Once upon a time there was a boy named Drew. He was a very kind, sweet, loving child who ate some very weird things.....for a kid.  He also came up with the title for this post :)

He was never afraid to try new and exciting foods, some of which his mother would not eat....., such as octopus, snails and the like.

One sunny day the entire family went to the zoo.  During this visit the family went into the zoo gift shop.  While other children were buying stuffed toys and stickers, Drew bought Crickets!!!  Dried crickets that were Sour Cream and Onion flavored!!!  Wonder if they taste like chicken??

Here is the true documentation of his experience eating a cricket...
First we have to see how nutritious the crickets are.....they actually have some fat grams (probably due to the flavoring)

Then Drew had to pick the optimum specimen for his taste test.

This little cricket is going down the hatch.....

very slowly!.....

Ok now he's chewing..... (mom gags)

and chewing some more.....

now he shivers a little.....not sure if he was doing this more for our viewing pleasure or if he really felt this way...

A picture is worth a thousand words :)

And the final decision is.....

maybe the sour cream and onion flavoring was bad???
I think the zoo made out on that purchase because the remainder of the crickets are in the trash!!

Drew rebounded quickly and is outside jumping a cricket... (Hahaha......sorry, couldn't help it)

Hope your day is fabulous!!



  1. What a brave and bold eater -- look out Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain!


  2. Having three boys, this is so normal around my house! Love the photos and beautiful expressions on Drew! :)
