“Cockroach Cake:” Food of the Future, or Forget About It?
by Scott Faith
But hey, it’s gluten-free!*
I’ve been in the Army over 20 years and I’ve lived in a lot of places across the globe. I’ve eaten insects before, whether in training, on a dare, or in the streets of Seoul. And although I know they’re considered a delicacy in some parts of the world, I’ve never eaten a cockroach before. Until… now?
Sounds yummy! Some thoughts:
Good Things About Eating Cockroach Cake:
-it only takes 75 days or so for the roaches to reach maturity
-they make themselves
-easy to breed, feed, and care for
-no one cares about cockroaches, so probably no PETA issues
Bad Things About Eating Cockroach Cake:
-you’re still eating cockroaches
Is this the food of the future?

*Actually, it’s not gluten free. It’s 10% cooked cockroach and 90% other stuff.
