Have you ever wondered what toasted grasshoppers taste like? Apparently a ton of people in the Pacific Northwest were curious about that because the concession stands at Safeco Field sold out of the new product Monday at the Seattle Mariners’ home opener — a new treat that was well publicized before the game.
Mariners broadcast reporting that the grilled grasshoppers have sold out.

Some of the folks at the park tweeted out they had tried them.

According to Eric Chesterton of MLB.com, “The grasshoppers are toasted with a chili-lime salt seasoning, making them both crunchy and zesty.”
People obviously liked them. Though we’re pretty sure PITA will have something to say about all this before it’s said and done.
