U.S. Candy Company Now Selling Chocolate-covered Cicadas

A Maryland candy company is selling chocolate covered cicadas to celebrate the emergence of the noisy insects that have spent the last 17 years underground.

Chouquette Chocolates is selling the cicadas – dipped in either milk or dark chocolate – online, but it also posted the recipe on its Facebook page for brave chefs looking for something to do with the bugs.

Billions of cicadas from Brood X are emerging from their subterranean homes as temperatures warm up in the eastern United States. They’ll spend the final days of their lives mating and making a tremendous racket as males work to attract females.

It’s is expected to be the largest emergence event since 2004.
