BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Chocolate covered cicadas are on the menu at a candy shop in Gaithersburg, Maryland and according to their website, the limited edition treat is in high demand. 

Billions of the loud, red-eyed bugs are reemerging after 17 years below ground.

 

For some people, the thought of eating a cicada may turn stomachs, but there are others who are taking advantage of the opportunity to indulge in the gluten-free, low-carb critters.
