What's Stopping Us From Eating Insects?

Good stuff."

Regardless of whether the article has any merit and insects would or would not be viable resources, the general populace in western non-insect eating societies will not adapt to it without a major hipster trend (read: unlikely), famine (due to other resources being too expensive or unavailable) or time to adjust. Perhaps if this generation begins to see this, the future ones will not consider it a taboo not just a gag gift (cricket lollipops and chocolate ants).

My personal opinion is it will become the latest hipster / granola trend.
