Cricket milkshakes are real... no April Fools' here

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - "So you'd like to order a milkshake? Would you like some cricket with that? No... seriously."

What started out as an April Fools' joke is now no laughing matter. Wayback burgers in East Meadow, New York thought it would be funny to put out a press release last week stating they'd be featuring a cricket milkshake on their April 1st menu. But then, something unexpected happened - people actually wanted to try it.

So Wayback Burgers decided they'd better give customers what they want and partnered with Cricket Flours, a west coast company who produce flour made from crickets, to make the cricket milkshake, a reality.

Crickets (and yes we're talking about the cute little insects) have become an increasingly popular source of protein and are actually a great source of other nutrients such as iron, calcium, B12, B16, Omega 3s, Omega-6s, and more.

Cricket Flours LLC is an Oregon based company who are helping to launch the new milkshake with Wayback Burgers featuring their Peruvian Chocolate Cricket Flour. All of the crickets are raised and processed in the United States and the cricket flour comes in a variety of flavors.

Would you try a chocolate cricket milkshake?
