Mariners sold out of toasted grasshoppers at Safeco Field
The Mariners have introduced a new item to snack on while watching a game at Safeco Field and (for at least one day) they couldn’t have too many of them.
When it comes to ballpark foods, teams appear to be trying to outdo each other at this point. There’s almost no limit to what you can find a stadiums across the country with some choices more extreme than others. At Safeco Field, you can munch on a well-seasoned insect.
For $4, you can get a bowl of toasted grasshoppers that have been tossed in chili lime salt. They will, obviously, not appeal to everyone. However, on Monday, enough people purchased them the concession stand selling them reportedly sold out.
Mariners broadcast reporting that the grilled grasshoppers have sold out.

A few fans took to Twitter and either posted photos or gave their impressions of the crunch snack.

The chili lime salt might actually entice me to try a couple if given the opportunity. I’d just have to get over the whole, you know, grasshopper thing.
