If you can't get enough of the cicadas everywhere, now you can eat them.
Chouquette Chocolate Bakery in Bethesda is serving up Brood X covered in chocolate for those looking to mix thing up a bit with their desserts.
Chouquette is selling chocolate covered cicadas by the dozen through their website and they're available in two different flavors: milk chocolate with bay spice or dark chocolate with cinnamon.
Love them or hate them, Brood X is here.. Cicada Summer 2021 Tour. Lean In to the invasion and Celebrate the 17 year cycle.
NOT A JOKE - these are REAL Brood X cicadas - currently gathered from Silver Spring, Gaithersburg and Potomac MD. We gather the cicadas as they shed from their exoskeletons, and emerge as young adults.
Recipe: Gather Fresh Cicadas. Freeze. Boil. Airfry. Cinnamon Sprinkle. Cover in Chocolate. Enjoy??
If you still want to get in on the cicada fun but don't fancy actually eating them, Chouquette is offering chocolates in the shape of cicadas filled with marshmallow creme.
