Guess What I Just Ate (kind of like chicken)


Oddly it all started with a trip to Big Chubby Burger in Kensington.  After we had bellyfuls of burgers, mom and I took a stroll through the market; poking in some of the stores, especially the fruit and fish markets. We came across a quaint chocolate/candy store called The Chocolate Addict (185 Baldwin Ave.) Among its many fair we came across crickets and larvae. That’s right, crickets – insects that chirp at night and larvae – as in wormlike baby insects.  Technically my mom and I have a rule against eating baby animals, so we didn’t get the larvae but we did get the crickets. This is the result.

Hello, my name is Callum. I was born in 1999 and have been working on this food blog for years. Through it, I’ve worked in expanding my palette and trying as many different types of foods and cuisines as possible. I’m casually interested I different scientific topics - like astrophysics and palaeontology - and I’m also something of a pop culture nerd as well. As covered in my other blog, I am involved in a variety of sports in Special Olympics, and I also do Tae Kwon Do outside of the SO. Toronto’s food scene is well known for being multi-layered and quite diverse. It is also restlessly changing. While many of the restaurants reviewed in my blog have since closed, just as many more have opened up. It has made for an interesting journey over the years, one I wish to continue through this blog. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. OMG, I thought, “no way.” But I used to like the chocolate covered Ants and candied Scorpions, etc. I think you’re on to something… We could possibly solve world hunger by harvesting giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) off the west coast of North America and harvesting the massive tonnage of insect protein every year near the arctic circle. Just add taste.
