Caption: Cricket in lollipop. Tongue licking a creme de menthe-flavoured lollipop containing an edible cricket. Crickets, which belong to the family Gryllidae, feed on plants at night. They are a good dietary source of minerals and vitamins, and contain roughly the same amount of protein as mammals and birds. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes ants, beetles and moths. Insects, along with arachnids such as spiders and scorpions, can be good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. This lollipop is made by the HotLix candy company, California, USA.
