LET'S WELCOME THE BUFFALO WORM
Fall in love with our new seasoned insect; the Buffalo worm.
For our hottest seasoning so far, we decided to offer you a brand new edible insect species: The Buffalo worm. The Buffalo worm or lesser mealworm (Alphitobius diaperinus) belongs to the same family as the mealworm. It is particularly rich in proteins in iron. It has a nutty flavour, close to cashews and peanuts.
LESSER MEALWORM, STRONG FLAVOUR
A smaller edible insect doesn't mean a small taste. Regarding deliciousness and a great experience, there is no compromise!
We decided to combine the strong chilli seasoning with the nutty taste of the buffalo worm to create this snack that will be perfect for a healthy appetizer or to add some crispiness and proteins to your salad. A small insect for a big whoa!
THE BUFFALO WORM, A SUPER-FOOD
The buffalo worm contains more than 55% of complete protein. It means that all the essential amino acids are present in sufficient amount. That's not all... It is also a source of iron and vitamins particularly well absorbed by our body. That's why we also choose this super-food to enrich our pasta. Chill and enjoy our healthy chilli buffalo worm!
INSECT PROTEIN FOR THE FUTURE? SNACKS FOR NOW!
In 2050, we will be 10 Billion people on our planet. The way we produce food is not sustainable and we will need new solutions; edible insects are one. They are high in proteins and vitamins and can be farmed sustainably. As they are cold blooded, they only require a small amount of feed and water to grow and reproduce really fast. As the idea of eating insect protein makes sense, we are aware that it will take some time before eating insects becomes mainstream. That's why at Jimini's we are going forward, step by step and want to offer you the tastiest way to discover edible insects. Why not start with this spicy chilli buffalo worm?

WHAT SHOULD YOU DRINK WITH EDIBLE GRUBS ?
Many of you have been asking us what do we drink with our edible insects? In order to give you the best answer, we’ve contacted the experts in this area and we’ve come up with various suggestions! So…
Let's start soft
The aperitif is not always synonyms with wine, beers or even cocktails and can be just as great with a nice cool drink. We could not find an expert to pair an ideal soft drink with edible insects, so we’ve decided to form our own panel! Giovanni our Ice Tea specialist, Sophie a compulsive consumer of Coca Cola and finally Nicolas a juice lover of all kinds. The results are clear, ALL soft drinks tested fitted perfectly with our crunchy and tasty edible insects!
Wing and wine
In order to know what the best wine is to be served with our grasshoppers, crickets and mealworms, we’ve decided to contact our friends from Le Petit Ballon. Jean Michel Deluc, Master Sommelier since 1991 and previously sommelier at the Ritz (if you please) in Paris, has organized for us a tasting. Result: Best to match your wine according to the seasoning of the insects. Indeed, the natural flavour of the insect is very neutral and the seasoning obviously much stronger.
As an aperitif, beers have many different specifications. However we haven’t yet found our beer expert, but we’re working on it!
If you have already tried a beer or indeed any other beverage whilst enjoying edible insects, do not hesitate to share your experience on our Facebook page or email us J
And remember, alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health but not the insects!
