Chocolatier serves up cicada sweets

Cicadas are flying off the shelves at a Maryland chocolate shop that is dipping the insects in chocolate to make sweet and crunchy treats. Sarah Dwyer, of Chouquette Chocolates, started coating cicadas in chocolate and selling them when Brood X started singing in 2021. Now her chocolate shop, which spends most of the year selling romantic and timely chocolates, has a five-day backlog for cicada orders.
