Wasp Cookie

Food makers in Japan came up with a new product that will surely create a buzz in the marketplace: the jibachi senbei, or the digger wasp rice cracker.

Wasp hunters from the village, who are mostly in their 80's, catch them in nearby forests.

They are then boiled in water, dried and sprinkled over the cracker mix, which is then stamped by hot iron cracker cutters.

A bag of 20 crackers costs £1.60, but output is limited as the wasps are caught in the wild for optimum flavour.
