Seattle Mariners Fans Can’t Get Enough Toasted Lime-Chili Grasshoppers at Games

$4 for a four ounce cup

The only time I would consider eating bugs, is if I was a contestant on a game show where there was money on the line. I’m not sure what is in the water in Seattle, but apparently fans are voluntarily eating grasshoppers at Mariners games.

According to ESPN, the stadium has sold 901 orders of the bugs (over 18,000 individual grasshoppers) in the first three home games. They are toasted in a chili lime salt. The insects are in such high demand that the Mariners had to make an emergency order to get them through this past weekend, and are now imposing a per-game order limit for the rest of the season.
