Here at, you know we love to eat. But we're not sure that even we would give these a go!

The Rentokil 'Pestaurant' is coming to the National Ploughing Championships again this year and shall be serving edible bugs free of charge!

Here's what's on offer:

  • Plain roasted locusts
  • Plain roasted mealworms
  • Plain roasted crickets
  • Plain roasted buffallo
  • Lime coriander mealworms
  • Ham cheese mealworms
  • Chilli pepper crickets
  • Green curry crickets
  • Giant crickets
  • Adult buffalo
  • Ant chocolate rounds
  • Cricket lollipops (peach and raspberry flavour)
  • Mealworm lollipops(ear and cherry flavour)
  • Grasshopper lollipops (kiwi flavour)

The National Ploughing Championship returns to Tullamore in Co. Offaly for its third consecutive year from September 20th to 22nd.

Surprising fact - we're not an exception if we're eating bugs, as according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, over two billion people worldwide already supplement their diet with insects.

Give it a try! And you could even win an iPad mini for your efforts.
