MARYLAND (WSYR-TV) — A Maryland-based chocolate shop is making a limited line of chocolate-covered cicadas. The cicadas are gathered locally, air-fried, sprinkled with cinnamon and dunked in chocolate used just for the insect treats.

The shop is swarmed with orders, which have to be made three to five days in advance. One dozen chocolate cicadas cost about $22.
