Move over, roast crickets. If you're a fan of potato chips, the next best thing might just be a crispy, lightweight sheet of preserved jellyfish.

Improving on a centuries-old technique, researchers in Denmark have come up with a new way to prepare these animals for consumption.

Scientists hope the dried-out final product might entice appetites way beyond Asia. And they say that eating these creatures would both help us battle jellyfish blooms in certain parts of the world, and diversify our food chain.

The scientists haven't elaborated on what the nutritional value would be of their crispy invention, but say "The mouth feel and the aesthetic appearance in particular have gastronomic potential." FULL STORY

Nutritional value must at least be equal to the average potato chip?

Can't be worse than chitlins & they're pretty good.

I'd try it. :th-up: :biggrin:

I would try them too.
I know they're bad for me and have little to no nutritional value but I flipping love potato chips. I wonder if these could be a (nominally) healthier treat while still being satisfying. It doesn't sound like their deep fried so that's an improvement, right? :biggrin:

Is Jellyfish The New Brain Food?
SEP 14, 2015
(bottom line:)

Human health isnít that simple. You donít acquire the properties of the food you eat. Eating chicken won't make you fly, and eating tuna won't make you a fast swimmer. Eating jellyfish proteins (Prevagen's main ingredient) won't improve your memory, nor will it allow you to emit green fluroescent light. There's no magic brain food, or supplement, that will make you smarter. But you can be a tiny bit richer by not spending your money on ineffective supplements.

Would sure be nice; emitting green fluorescent light might be fun :cheeky: , but even after reading this, I'd still give jellyfish chips a try. :biggrin:

I'd try jellyfish. I would try escargot. I hear caviar is good although some people don't like it and I find roe in general not an appetizing proposition, but I would try it anyway. Not sure about crickets or bugs.

Didn't like foie gras at all. Not really fond of the idea of fattening an animal beyond all sensibilities just for a fatty liver. Just sounds mean to me to force feed an animal like that for a "delicacy"
