Did You Pick Up Your Grasshopper Sandwich?

We alerted you to this opportunity on our Facebook page and in our email blasts that go out to 17,000 people. How could you not be in the know?

The traveling Oaxacan market is camped out again at the Walmart parking lot in Cabo, but shake a leg, it’s only here until January 30th . (See, too late!)

High on the menu of Oaxacan cuisine is chapulines, which is grasshoppers that have been fried and seasoned with salt, lime and chili pepper. Whoaaa Nellie! Fried grasshoppers would take a heap of seasoning to entice this writer, but maybe some of you are not such finicky eaters.

The way these are cooked up, they still look like grasshoppers, so there’s no doubt what you’re eating. We recommend the old squint-eye method of eating these: Squint so hard you see stars and start believing you’re on another planet.

 The good news is, a grasshopper sandwich only costs 50 pesos or $2.50 USD.  That’s a bargain for a good source of protein if you’re into desperate measures to get that protein intake under control.

Remember, you have to ask for chapulines, as they won’t know the word grasshopper. Take your picture while eating one and send it to us. We will publish your picture. Make your mama proud.

Now. Aren’t you sorry you don’t check our Facebook page regularly? Think of the culturally sensitive info you could be missing
