With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the explosion of red and pink in store aisles is hard to miss. Stuffed animals, flowers and chocolate galore are bursting from the shelves so it’s time to think about what you’ll get the special people in your life. Chocolate specifically is one of the most popular Valentine’s gifts and on average 48 million pounds of chocolate is sold on this happy love day. But why get your special someone another box of the same, ol’ boring chocolates? Why not spice it up this Valentine’s with something more interesting, unique and exotic? Can you guess where Pointe Pest Control is going with this one? That’s right, chocolate covered BUGS! It might sound absolutely disgusting but you may be surprised. First of all, when prepared right, insects are quite delicious. With a nutty, salty and sometimes smoky taste, insects are a great snack, high in protein and very underrated. And let’s face it, anything slathered in chocolate is delicious.
For your sweet honey this Valentine’s Day, here are some creative and exotic chocolate insects that actually taste good!

These gigantic ants covered in chocolate are hardly noticeable in the chocolate shell but don’t you feel cool saying you just ate a pile of ants? Eating these is more of an experience.

These treats are not for the faint of heart simply because they are a little scary looking. Don’t worry though, they’re not poisonous and you might be surprised by how much you enjoy eating one.
Are you terrified of spiders? Well, conquer your fear by dousing one in chocolate and barbarically chomping off one leg at a time! Take precautions who you give this love day treat to because chocolate covered tarantulas though tasty are a bit scary looking.
