What's one way to make your kids more worldly? Feed 'em crickets, says Angelina Jolie.
The actress introduced two of her tots to the crunchy creatures in order to expose them to the cultural eating habits of other countries, she revealed in a video interview for the Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign.
Maddox, 9 and Pax, 7, "ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn't stop," she bragged, and admitted she likes them too: "They're like a potato chip," she said. "They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many."
Well if it's good enough for Angelina and her brood, is may be good enough for the rest of Americans. Insects have been making their way onto mainstream menus here for a while now. One New York City bar is offering bees, worms and scorpions in their cocktails. Chefs are writing books about them. And hey, they've got to be less scary than live lobster and raw chicken, right?
