We never thought it was possible to make ice cream look bad, but someone managed to pull that off, too — by adding dead, fried insects as toppings. Eww. Apparently, this discomforting addition makes your ice cream more rich in protein. So, would you try it?

To promote this trend among foodies, ice cream shops have created special menus and flavours such as Ginger ice cream with mealworms, Pistachio ice cream with grasshoppers, Scurry Berry with blueberry, raspberry and a mix of insects, Choc hopper with chocolate and grasshopper chunks and Nutritious Neopolitan with critters mixed into strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.

According to the Internet, this trend is supposed to encourage people to consume insects as a sustainable protein source and meat alternative. Thus, incorporating bugs into the diet could be the next big thing in the future. Check out how various real-life insects are being used in the world's favourite dessert. Literally, making us I-SCREAM.
