Sorry folks, Sparky's Homemade Ice Cream in Missouri will not be making any more cicada ice cream for the time being after receiving advice from the public health department. This will disappoint the many customers who made this unique flavor a runaway hit. It was so popular that it sold out Wednesday, June 1 before it was to make its grand debut on Thursday.
Employees collected the cicadas in their backyards and removed most of the dead bugs' wings. They then boiled the bountiful bugs and covered them in brown sugar and milk chocolate. The base ice cream is brown sugar and butter flavour.
Does this sound like a tasty treat to you?Link
