Twice a year, Mole Crickets, which we affectionately call “Ground Diggers” come out from the ground in mass.

Our kids usually run around with buckets collecting as many mole crickets as they can.  It usually is a communal event, culminating with a block party during which everyone gets to participate in the frying and eating of these delicious bugs.

It doesn’t take long for these little creatures to fry up into a crisp tasty snack.

Not everyone on the block party enjoys this tasty unique snack.

But it appears that it is quite popular in other lands.  🙂   Stay tuned for it to arrive at your local grocery store.
