When I ate bugs Christmas before last, I swear I could taste them/ feel them in my teeth for months.

I had those stories (couldn't remember whose exactly) in mind as I ate them... but thankfully not in teeth. The legs were frazzled up under the ant's head/body, definitely there but hard to get stuck in the jaws.

Hang on - I don't like any of these stories. I was told that insects might be the solution to food sourcing problems in the future. No-one says they taste like crap for days afterwards when they say the former...

When they talk about making food from insects, I don't think they mean roasting he whole thing, legs and wings, so it still looks like a bug. They'd be pasting them to make something like quorn I expect.

I think I'd rather have the whole insects to be honest.

Chocolate Brownie Oreos

img:
 

Have you ever had an Oreo and thought, "If only this tasted more like a Bourbon Cream?"

Pros:

  • Delicious taste
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Cons:

  • Lacks the sharp taste of the original Oreo
  • For some reason, these never last long

Mmmm rating: 7/10

A packet of Oreos looks to be a similar size to any other packet of biscuits, but each Oreo takes up three times the space so it doesn't last as long.

They are a bit of a rip in that regard, yes.

Further, I've been snacking more. Twisted Evil It's another twofer.

Vegan Cornetto

img:
 

Because you have to try these things. Ice cream is one of life's sweetest pleasures and we don't have so much of it around these parts any more.

Pros:

  • Tastes similar enough to the original
  • Shows that Walls are thinking about the vegan community

Cons:

  • Doesn't quite taste like the original
  • Only one flavour so far

Mmmm rating: 8/10

In addition to the above

Hartley's Cloudy Jelly (Lemonade Flavour)

img:
 

Saw this, picked it up. Cool

Pros:

  • Lovely sharp taste
  • Gives you that jelly fix

Cons:

  • Relatively expensive
  • Almost felt like it hadn't set when I took it out of the fridge... but it had!

Mmmm rating: 6/10

I've seen a few vegan friends bigging up the current vegan ice cream scene. Good to see!
