Sainsbury's becomes first UK supermarket to sell edible bugs as crickets hit shelves
Customers will soon be able to pick up smoky barbecue-flavoured crickets at Sainsbury's supermarkets as part of their weekly shop

Crickets are set to hit the shelves as Sainsbury’s becomes the first supermarket to sell edible bugs.

Customers will be able to fill their shopping baskets with Eat Grub’s Smoky BBQ Crunchy Roasted Crickets in 250 of the supermarket giant’s stores from Sunday.

The house crickets, also known as acheta domesticus, are farmed in Europe and come in packets of about 50 for £1.50 per bag.

Anyone brave enough to try the snack is promised to get a “crunchy texture with a rich, smoky flavour”.
