ONE MORE BITE
It’s a once-in-17-years kind of culinary inspiration, and our North Charles Street bakery has caught the bug, with their limited-time-only (and 100% free-of-insects) frosted Cicada Cupcakes ($2.99)
And they’re in good company with some of these other Cicada-inspired, regional culinary inventions:
Baltimore’s own Zeke’s Coffee “Brewed X” (available while supplies last)
Leesburg, Virginia’s Cocina on Market serving up cicada tacos
The Washington Post fries up Spicy Cicada Popcorn
A Maryland candy company makes headlines with its Chocolate-Covered Cicadas
...and (of course) The Baltimore Sun gives cicadas the Old Bay treatment.
The Internet is, err, “abuzz” with homespun cicada recipes—how do you like yours cooked?
