Everyone always says that vanilla ice cream is boring and bland. First of all, those people are wrong, and they’re idiots who can’t appreciate the richness of a rarefied flavor. But just for fun, we’re gonna silence the critics by staring them coldly in the eyes as we bite down on a spoonful of insects to prove our badassery. This normally smooth, creamy treat is getting two kicks: the first is a generous pour of Kahlua, and the second is a sprinkling of dry-roasted crickets. Expect a pleasing crunch and a light buzz.
Vanilla Chirp Ice Cream
1 quart vanilla (or vanilla-bean) ice-cream
1 cup of dry-roasted crickets
4 oz. Kahlua
Fill four bowls with heaping servings of vanilla ice cream. Sprinkle dry-roasted crickets on top and add 1 oz. of Kahlua (or more, really—nobody’s judging here). Serve and savor.
