No amount of ‘supply chain issues’ is going to force me into eating bugs as a normal thing. Same can be said about drinking them. Stop this bug-water beer trend, FFS.
Insect Sour (“Konchu Sour” in Japanese) is the latest bug-based drink to jump on the hype plane and make its way to America. And we need to collectively ignore this.
The company makes no attempt to disguise the fact that it is fvcking bug beer. They put that nasty looking thing right on the label.
The bug, you ask, is commonly known as an “Indian toe-biter”… which seems like your Lib friends should find racist and since they are the most likely to drink this beer, make sure you point out how racist it is. And help curb this trend.
Anyway, the racist ass bug can grow to over four inches in length, and are known to prey on other freshwater creatures such as other insects, fish, and small amphibians. In other words, this roach looking racist bug is a pretty serious predator, too.
What does it taste like? I don’t fvcking know and I never will.
How did their marketing team sell it:
Bugs Farm claims to have captured the unique aroma of the male water bug pheromones in the beer’s bouquet and listed “water bug extract” on the bottle as the drink’s main ingredient.
The bug is said to have a sweet, almost fruity, flavor and has been compared to a prawn.
So … bug beer that tastes like seafood?
Count me double out.
Oh, it also cost $5.55 per bottle.
So, overpriced bug beer that tastes like seafood.
Fvck me. No.
