The Snacks of Summer

Crispy Fried Grasshopper

Crispy Fried Grasshoppers are served with lime at Seattle Mariners baseball games

There is a new version of “Take me out to the ballgame” in Seattle where the Mariners play. It goes, “With peanuts and popcorn and cricket snacks…” The change in the song reflects a change in cuisine. In 2017, the stadium hired local Seattle chef, Ethan Stowell to make tasty new recipes. Sports fans can now purchase crispy fried grasshopper tacos and other delicacies. The grasshoppers sell better in the later innings after the fans have had a few beers or lost bets.

What will they think of next?
It is rumored that the home series with Kansas City will feature stir fried praying mantis.
