While some might consider them disgusting, insects are considered to be a green alternative to meat with just as much protein. Swiss supermarket Coop is bringing in Essento and some of its bug-based products for its customers to try.

After two and a half years of development, the supermarket is offering an Insect Burger, with rice and vegetables such as turnip, celery and leeks, and Insect Balls, which are made of flourworms, chickpeas, onions, and garlic. The products will be available in seven Coop stores, including Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Winterthur, Bernem Lugano, and Lausanne as well as being available online. As part of the launch, Essento will be doing pop-up meals for brave customers who reserve their tickets via the Essento website, and will even be offering their own cooking classes and a cookbook who are looking to integrate these news products in their everyday cuisine.
