Can Sleek Packaging Normalize Insect Snacks?
Designers try to make the idea of eating a bug more appealing in anticipation of a growing global population.
With populations continuing to increase around the world, there may come a point when insects become an integral part of our everyday diet. The only problem is that the idea does not sit so well with many Westerners, even with great products already out there like protein bars made from crickets. But what about using design as a way to accept the idea of chowing down on some creepy crawlies?
Available on ThinkGeek, this gift pack consists of six different tins, each with its own unique insect, and each with its own unique flavor. Some of the highlights include Nori Seaweed Armor Tail Scorpions, Sour Cream & Onion Dung Beetles, and Wasabi House Crickets.
