If your typical stadium hot dog and popcorn aren't doing it for you anymore, maybe this crunchy new craze taking off in stadiums is for you. This past weekend at the Atlanta Hawks home opener against the Denver Nuggets at Phillips Stadium, a new food item premiered: Aketta's "Cajun Cricket Tacos." They include cajun-flavored crickets, avocado, cilantro and onion and sell for $12.
This follows the huge success at Safeco Field this season when the Mariners debuted toasted grasshoppers. The insects are full of protein and contribute to a healthy, balanced meal.
