BETHESDA, Md. — A chocolate shop in Bethesda, Maryland is keeping with the time with its trendy Brood X cicada chocolate-covered cicadas.
Chouquette has been offering the item amid the Brood X cicadas that are in the DMV region this summer.
The chocolate-covered cicadas are air-fried then dipped in chocolate.
WUSA9's Chester Lampkin tried one of the chocolate-covered cicadas and said it "it tasted mostly like chocolate, with some other bits."
Chouquette sells the cicadas for $22, according to its website. It takes three to five days to get your chocolate-covered cicadas after the purchase of them.
The chocolate shop said that it uses cicadas that have already shed their exco-skeleton and are in their young adult stage.
A large number of Brood X cicadas are now emerging throughout the region, making for some dramatic sightings.
Brood X is expected to raise sound levels in neighborhoods up to 100 decibels, which rivals the noise of a passing jetliner or a lawnmower running full blast.
