WOULD YOU EAT CRICKET CHIPS? YUMMMMMM

You've probably heard the reports from scientists and researchers who say that insects are a healthy source of protein with the bonus of being environmentally-friendly too -- but who wants to eat bugs? To try to overcome the "ick" factor, three recent Harvard grads have created snack chips they call Chirps that are made from ground-up crickets. In addition to the bugs, which are dried and crushed to a fine powder, the chips also contain mashed black and pinto beans and ground rice. Co-creator Rose Wang said, "They taste like tortilla chips with a hint of bean," with the crickets giving them a slightly nutty flavor. Chirps come in three flavors -- barbecue, aged cheddar and sea salt -- and have half the fat of potato chips, with co-creator Laura D'Asaro saying they are even healthier than kale chips
