Insect-infused ice-cream stalls will be popping up across Melbourne in a bid to educate citizens about the future of food.
The Economist will be slinging scoops of bug-filled ice-cream to stir up conversation about global food sustainability.
On offer is your choice of Scurry Berry, blueberry and raspberry ice-cream with a mix of insect bits; Choc Hopper, smooth chocolate ice-cream with grasshopper chunks; Strawberries and Swirls, fresh strawberry ice-cream with cream and meal-worm swirls; and Nutritious Neapolitan, mixed critters in strawberry, chocolate and vanilla ice-cream.
Two billion people around the world are already munching down on the crispy critters, but can you stomach it?
