    Weird News: Chocolate-covered cicadas a hit in Maryland
     Along the Eastern U.S., cicadas are flying out of the ground. But in one Maryland chocolate shop, 17-year-old insects are flying off the shelves. Sarah Dwyer, of Chouquette Chocolates in Bethseda, started coating cicadas in chocolate and selling them when the periodical Brood X emerged this spring for the first time since 2004. Now, her chocolate shop has a ten-day backlog for cicada orders.
    "When you combine the chocolate, the cinnamon, and the nuttiness of the bugs, it really gives you that holiday feeling of when you're walking around a big city and they're roasting nuts on the sidewalk, that cinnamon smell, it's really what it tastes like," Dwyer said.
    The shop's employees gather the plentiful cicadas from a copse of trees behind their chocolaterie. The cicadas are put in a paper bag and placed in the freezer. Once dead, she boils the cicadas to clean them, and crisps them in an air fryer. Once fried, Dwyer sprinkles them with either cinnamon or savory Old Bay seasoning and covers them in chocolate.
    For Dwyer, this is a chance for consumers to become more familiar with a type of protein she thinks will be a lot more popular by the next time these insects start to sing again. "I really do think that in 2038, people will not think twice about eating a bug at all," Dwyer said.
