Crispy baked bugs, anyone?

Aaron Bussell, our Animal Nutrition Center supervisor, didn’t think he’d be wiped out of food at the State Fair of Texas when he was invited to hold a cooking demo, considering he was baking bugs! But that’s exactly what happened – 150 portions gone in a matter of minutes. On the menu: candy and caramel apples topped with crispy cinnamon mealworms; crunchy ginger super worms; honey cricket taffy; fruit skewers with fresh crickets for dipping in the chocolate fountain; and super worms fried inside a hushpuppy with Texas sweet potatoes. We think his beautiful food presentations made the bugs seem too good to pass up! See for yourself with this slideshow.
