Hotlix Insect Candy — USA

People have been eating insects throughout history and many cultures still do today. It makes sense: insects are plentiful and a good source of nutrition and protein for a growing global population with limited food resources. This California sweet maker takes that trend to a whole new level with a range of chocolate-covered and candy-dipped insects and (ahem) scorpions. It’s candy with a cringe-factor.
