Stadi-Yum? Insects Are Newest Concession At Seattle’s Safeco Field

Toasted grasshoppers aren’t replacing peanuts and Cracker Jacks anytime soon, and they certainly don’t come with a cool prize, but they are the hot new concession at Seattle’s Safeco Field.

The new stadium snack is courtesy of Seattle Mexican restaurant Poquitos, which will be offering concessions for the first time at Safeco, just in time for the Mariners home opener. The bugs (chapulines) have been a popular menu item at the restaurant for quite some time. And at the stadium, they’re only a buck more; $4 will buy you a cup of freshly cooked grasshoppers tossed in a chili lime seasoning.

Don’t like grasshoppers by the handfuls? You can use them to top your tacos, which Poquitos will also have on offer.

According to Girl Meets Bug, 100 grams of grasshoppers contain upwards of 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fat. And if it turns out you don’t like the taste of the crunchy little critters, you can always blow the rest of your budget washing them down with overpriced beer.
