Tired of hearing your dinners taste like crap? Don't get mad, go with the flow and make them LOOK like like crap too! The new Gummi-X kit from Megahouse gives you all you need to make a variety of frighteningly tasty, fruit juicy insects you can then use to make Dung Beetle Desserts!
Check out this Japanese TV commercial for the Gummi-X kit - even the featured child actors look kinda grossed out as they eat the big, jiggly bugs:
The "mother center" gives you a base mold, mixing beakers for juice & gelatine, tweezers and a measuring spoon. The molds allow you to create 2 different beetles, pillbugs and crayfish. What, no mealworms?
We're not sure whose idea it was to pose one of the gummi beetles beside a cream puff just like a dung beetle with, erm, dung, but give that staffer a bonus - he or she has earned it!
You can get your very own Gummi-X edible insect kit from Amazon Japan for just 4,300 yen (just under $50.00), with expansion kits that include molds for a tree frog and another beetle going for 1,529 yen (about $17.00) each. (via Impress Watch)
