There is much talk about what food in the future will look like and none of it sounds too tasty, with lab grown meat and other things you wouldn't dream of eating now, a definite possibility in the future. If all that sounds horrid, how about some free ice cream to wipe away the thought of eating creepy crawlies. Well, kind of.
The Feeding the Future Ice-Cream Truck is travelling around Sydney this March offering free ice-cream to those who dare catch a tasty glimpse into our possible future eating habits. Insect laden ice-cream that is. Think chocolate with grasshopper chunks, strawberry with mealworm swirls and blueberry and raspberry ice cream with mixed bugs.
Replace chocolate chip with cricket chip (or grasshopper, same same)
