Creepy Crawly Critters

Picture yourself in a lush green field. The air is fresh, the sun is shining, and tall grass bends beneath your hands. You notice a single grasshopper, flitting from place to place. He lands on your hand, and you gently try brush him away, but find that you can’t. You find an ant on your shirt, then several more on your cheek, and as you try to catch them they scatter. Suddenly a horde of insects is crawling, buzzing, and flying around you. They land on your hands—their hairy legs sticking to your skin. You try to run, but you trip, and fall headfirst into a teeming, squirming world of Creepy Crawly Critters. This may sound dramatic, but it’s not as far-fetched as you may think. Put yourself in this scene, with a light and fresh green-grass ice cream that hides swarms of real dark chocolate covered crickets and coconut toffee-brittle mealworms from our friends Don Bugito, in Oakland, CA.…Wait, did that one just move?
