  • ♪ (French accordion music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) Today you're gonna be trying

  • an alternative form of protein. - Oh god.

  • NO!!! Hell. No!

  • - No.

  • You can just put this away. I'm not eating a cricket.

  • - IIIIII'm busy this day. I have to go do a thing.

  • - I don't know how down I am for this.

  • - Bugs is one of the things that I never do.

  • - All right, I'll try it.

  • Honestly, they're kinda cute.

  • - They're crickets.

  • I get a dozen large every week for my leopard gecko.

  • - It's a living an-- (crickets chirping)

  • (retches) And it's making noises.

  • - I will-- (cricket chirps)

  • (screams shrilly)

  • They're chirping!

  • - (Finebros) And now you get to taste it.

  • - Wait-wait-wait, they're in the cookies?

  • - They're in cookies?

  • This makes it a little less scary.

  • - I'm-- I'm concerned,

  • 'cause it looks like just cookies and milk,

  • but I know it's not.

  • - Here we go.

  • Mm! There's no cricket in it... I think.

  • - Is there anything currently alive in it? - (Finebros) No.

  • - Everything is dead. Okay, that's all I wanted to know.

  • It's a chocolate chip cookie.

  • - Tastes pretty regular.

  • (crunching)

  • - Good.

  • - Okay.

  • (crunches)

  • It's okay. Yeah, it tastes pretty good.

  • - All right, I'ma go for it.

  • (crunching)

  • I taste something weird.

  • - It's really grainy. It tastes like a granola bar.

  • - Let's just do it.

  • NO! (snickers)

  • Aah! (whimpers)

  • Nothing? This just tastes like a cookie.

  • - It has a weird aftertaste.

  • - I thought you guys were gonna give me a full-on cricket

  • and be like, "There you go. Have at it."

  • - (Finebros) You just tried a sweet version of those little guys.

  • - No way. They're in it.

  • - (Finebros) Think you're ready to take them on face to face?

  • - Guys, I hate bugs.

  • - Right when I thought you guys were being nice to me.

  • I am not interested.

  • - I'm not doing that! No!

  • No, I will not eat this bug! I refuse!

  • - Aaaagh... aah-HA! I touched it!

  • No, I quit. I can't! I can't do it!

  • Lookit, there's legs on there!

  • - This is for you.

  • Ugh, god.

  • Mm. Mm.

  • Oh! Ooh!

  • - Okay, which one looks the least disgusting?

  • YOLO.

  • Yeah, it's pretty gross.

  • (crunching)

  • - Guh!

  • - (hacks) Okay, I did it. Take those away.

  • - I don't want to do this!

  • (crunches)

  • Ugh!!

  • - I like, I feel the guts in my mouth. That's so gross.

  • - I just feel little legs and wings like, (grumbles)

  • - It was not that bad actually.

  • I'm liking this aftertaste right now.

  • - Definitely better than I thought it was gonna taste.

  • I'm pretty proud of myself, actually.

  • - (Finebros) Congratulations. You just ate crickets.

  • - Yes!

  • - Victory! I feel so accomplished with my life!

  • - (Finebros) Crickets can be eaten whole

  • but also can be grounded into flour

  • and used for a variety of smoothies, oatmeal,

  • or even baked goods like the cookies you had.

  • - Okay, so there was no whole cricket in there.

  • - It's kinda creative, 'cause I couldn't tell.

  • - Cookies? Those are like-- it's like a little safe haven.

  • And when you put smushed-up crickets in there,

  • that ruins the entire safe little bubble you had for cookies.

  • And now I can't trust anything.

  • - What's the upside versus just regular flour?

  • - (Finebros) Some people believe crickets

  • are the future of protein,

  • an eco-friendly alternative to livestock and a sustainable way

  • to feed the over 7 billion people on Earth.

  • - No! No, no, no, no.

  • - Moving to alternatives that we can farm.

  • So effectively and efficiently, space-wise, might be a good idea.

  • - People put so many GMOs and stuff in their body

  • that a cricket's natural,

  • so I'm sure they'll be fine with eating this as their protein.

  • Just not me.

  • - (Finebros) Lastly, do you recommend people try crickets?

  • - I do.

  • - I would not.

  • - 0 out of 10 don't recommend.

  • - Please don't.

  • - Try 'em. That aftertaste-- beautiful.

  • - HELL no!

  • - Yes.

  • I did it once, and I can say that I did it, and I'm happy.

  • - Try it as flour, because the cookies were just like

  • (kisses) baked goods.

  • All cookies are great.

  • - Thanks for watching the very first episode of Teens vs. Food

  • on the React channel.

  • - Put your mouths over the Subscribe button and "cricket."

  • - Bye, guys. Can I get another one of those cookies?
