Excuse Me, But There’s a Worm in My Meatball

The story.

We’ve been given plenty of internet gold over the years poking fun at Ikea and its DIY style, but there’s something even more interesting coming down the pipeline.

Some details.

The popular furniture store is already known for their food cafeterias. In fact, about 30% of it’s customers come just to eat. They even announced last year that they’re looking to develop a chain of stand-alone cafes, but the big news today is their Space10 lab concept— “a future-living lab on a mission to design a better and more sustainable way of living”.

The main goal? To serve up healthy and sustainable food. That sounds like something we can totally get behind.

Yes, but.

The menu certainly sounds spacey. We’re talking concoctions like dog-less hot dogs with micro-algae buns, bug burgers, and meatballs made from mealworms. Talk about giving cricket protein a run for its money. Some of this stuff looks down right gnarly.

Eating bugs for sustainability really does make sense, and many companies have been experimenting with new products. Maybe this is a totally insane and crazy concept, or maybe this is just the food of the future.
