It’s usually baseball ballparks which lay claim to attention-grabbing snacks. The one upmanship of outrageous snacks in baseball reached a point where last season, the Seattle Mariners started serving cricket tacos. The tacos were so popular that they’d often sell out before the mid-way point of the game and fans would wait in long lines to get the insect tacos.

The Atlanta Hawks must’ve taken notice of this because they’ve added Cricket Tacos to their concession stands for the 2017-2018 NBA season. Apparently, these tacos made of six-legged insects taste “savory like sunflower seeds and crispy like chips,” according to Philadelphia’s CBS Local.

As far as the ‘eye test’ goes, these definitely look like legitimate tacos. And I’d be lying if I said they didn’t look a little tasty:
