CRICKET TASTE TEST

CRICKET TASTE TEST


Hello guys it is barry here welcome (says
hello in various languages) and hi welcome oh I say you have been practicing your lingo,
I have been brushing up on my lingo, what is this with the drum roll I do not know it
is just like an introduction, this is my Mum if you do not know who my mum is she has been
in other videos with me and I often reference how I fell out of her once and stuff like
that she is always up for a challenge are you mum. *awkward laugh*
When I said fell out I meant when you gave birth to me I thought you meant fell out no
well apparently when my mum gave birth to me I did shoot out of her but I did not want
to go into that much detail did I too much information you have the marks to show for
it where they caught you is that why I have a mark in my head, did I land on the table,
oh he is alright no it was a nurses nail what lets clear this up it was a nurses nail embedded
in my head not embedded she just caught you because it could have been a lot worse but
they do not want to know about that. The health and safety in the eighties was
a bit random, before we get started actually my mum wants to start her own youtube channel
about being an agony aunt, so if any of you guys like the idea of that and would like
her to answer any embarrassing questions let me know down below because she has taken early
retirement and can only live off the fact she was born on the same day and year as Michael
Jackson for so long. You will not let that one go will you, hee hee nope going to get
her a sequin glove for her 60th you are already 60 are you not. Disclaimer she does look good
for 60, I am not 60 thankyou. You round it up I was taught in maths you round it up,
everyone is going to google how old is Michael Jackson now no women do not round up their
age is that correct ladies, we round down girls don�t we let us know if you are a
girl. If you are a bloke you round up so you could have a drink and stuff when you were
younger anyhow the purpose of my mum being here you know I went to America recently I
went in this crazy shop where I found all these amazing things right mum told you about
it I have jerky, scorpion and tarantula down there which I will probably get Ashens involved
in. So we have got 3 items we are going to pick
from today my mum is going to pick aren�t you did I just catch you doing the oooh face
I just do not want to get the crickets, I do not fancy them, we have got bacon and cheese
flavour crickets, we have got earthworm jerky so if you remember earthworm jim the video
game or cartoon it is kind of like they turned him into jerky and not fried but dehydrated
so you get that maximum earthworm flavour right mum the last item is rattlesnake, this
is a tin of rattlesnake chunks, smoked, so there is a bit of flavour in there and I think
it may be in some sort of gravy, what my mum does not know is that in my head and on the
screen right now there are already numbers allocated to these items, just give me a number
between one to three the element of surprise isn�t it, whoah like that, I quite like
going even, so two, two, maybe 3, crickets, no!
Got ourselves a little plate for our crickets and it is sat there ready to be consumed,
bacon and cheese flavour crickets amazing packaging on the back apart from this diagram
where you can see the rump and the flank and the wings and the breast you know like the
diagram of the cows and pigs they have it does not really contain any nutritional stuff
at all it is one serving per person you take a shot of it so we are being quite good, 9
calories so if you are on a cricket only diary you can have loads of these. Two thousand
calories a day you can have loads, they are in a bag, get a shot of that so you can see
that there, I will zoom in, there you go, I opened the pack and there was an instant
smell of bugness hmm tasty. Bugs are supposed to be like the new thing are they not oh no,
one of them is not coming out, oh no, we just emptied the bag and there is like, it moved,
it did not move if I just kind of do that I love how there is random wings and legs,
look there is a head, yeah I think we should get this done and dusted mum would you like
me to serve this to you on a fork, come on we need to do this sophisticated, I do not
do wings, you do not do them flying without wings, we are going to go for, look at this
one, this is a good one right here, no do not give me that one, come on, you are prolonging
it, you need to get in that zone mum, can I have that one, please, yeah ok you can.
It has not got any wings on it, urgh are you ready right you hold that this is your new
friend what are you going to call him, I am going to call mine terry I am going to go
for this one here, oh no, lovely so should be able to see that there hopefully, are you
ready mum, shall we do it romantically lets have a smell very buggy and woody earthy,
yeah earthy hmmm, hate you why could I not have had a girl, yeah she had two girls they
both look like me by the way anyhow ready three two one �. Urgh where is the bacon
and cheese in that laughs. Oh I got a head, haha oh you got a head, oh my nearly choking
on a leg like a random bug limb, you ok, where is the bacon and cheese in that they just
put that on the packet to sell it, yeah there is no bacon and cheese in that that tasted
like eating wood, I have a leg, later on my mum is going to a show, oh anne you have something
in your teeth oh it is just a bug leg. Would you like another one, there is a real
big one right here look at that he has like prongs coming out of it hmmm oh barry you
can taste wood can you summarise I do not like it I hate you it is just very, no I cannot
just very bitty, bitty I want bitty some of you may get that reference it is ok, bugs
done bacon and cheese not in there very wingy dry dusty like eating dried wood or chipboard
that is the best way of describing it, come on mum one more, before we end, lets finish
with one more, come on lets finish that, come on now, ok there is the head, there is the
head, I do not like the head, do not like it, right I am just going to leave my mum
with a bug in her mouth *mum screams* right I think that is the end of the video so there
is plenty more unique treats to taste either with my mum or ashens coming up really soon
between the giant foods and all that stuff that is it then guys do not forget to let
me know what you think of my mum having her own channel and good luck with that lets get
rid of the leg out of my teeth hee hee not a fan

Comments (100)

  1. Stuart has eaten insects on his channel Barry, I'm sure he would be happy to try again. Your mum looks a lot younger than 60, I would have guessed around my age (I'm also less than 60) 🙂

  2. Your dear Mum is so sweet to come on your channel and eat bugs for our viewing pleasure.  This was so funny!

  3. i wouldnt actually mind going for some snake

  4. +Barry Lewis I love the idea of your mum doing an aghony aunt channel 😀 Any mum willing to eat crickets with her son should have some wise things to say 🙂

  5. Poor Mum. The things we do for our children lol. You rock for supporting Barry so well. I adore my daughter but I'm not so sure I could eat bugs for her. 🙂

  6. best little Brittan reference ever

  7. oh Barry, some mothers do ave em

  8. I want bitty…
    Little britain 😀

  9. I've eaten rattlesnake before it was probably the best thing I've eaten.

  10. i saw her in the thumbnail and my brain was like "get out me car!"

  11. Always fantastic to see your mum Barry. She's awesome and yes she does look good for her age. On to the more important matters: Is there any update on her musical career with The Swingers? Would love to get my hands on that record 🙂 Crickets are yummy by the way if prepared properly to cater to your own tastebuds.

  12. love the come fly with me and little britain references 😀

  13. Mum should have her own channel. I will watch. She is also right about rounding WAY down in age. I have been 29 for 10 years. Next year I will be 39 for ten years.

  14. Barry, two things… You were supposed to have your mum for the mini grilled-cheese. Also a woman has the right to be whatever age she claims as long as it doesn't get someone else in trouble.

  15. Hi barry love u ive got your book and its awesome making cola chicken out of your book tonight

  16. She's your mother? Did she had you when she was a teen or something?

  17. Bugs taste like peanuts to me.

  18. While I wouldn't call them very tasty (unless covered in tasty chocolate, maybe), I kinda wish people would be less squeamish about the idea of eating bugs. It's perfectly healthy food and it needs a better rep. Ah well, give it time..

  19. Poor Terry and your poor mum! Like the idea of her agony aunt channel though.

  20. I eat crickets quite often, they're lovely and nutritious!

  21. Please don't eat pre-packaged insects. Go to a country where they serve them instead.

  25. Your mom is awesome. I would love to see more videos with her.
    Greetings from Brazil. (Thank GOD we don't eat crickets, LOL)

  34. Oh my god, your mom is so awesome, Barry! What kind of YouTube channel did you say she was interested in starting? I might subscribe to that if she's this cool.

  40. One word – eeeeeeeeew!

    ps – your mum would make a great agony aunt, she should go for it.

  41. Such a sophisticated meal. The perfect dinner date with your mum.

  42. when i try to submit a recipe on your website and i try to upload an image it simply won't work and therefor i can't type a title or ingredients down
    why is this happening?
    (and yes the picture is big enough)

  43. i have a friend from Cambodia who ate fried tarantula and he said it tastes like peanut butter

  44. Hey Barry I've been a scribe subscriber since 90k I was woundering I live in a place called Teeside in England (not far from Newcastle) we are recognised for our parmos which a lot of people don't know what they are it is breaded chicken with bathamel Saudi and cheese on the top of you search for a recipe on google I'm sure you'll find one it would be great if your created one for your fans to create and enjoy also it is amazing with either some garlic side or bbq and the great thing is you can put practical anything on it to spice or change it up

  45. Lol great video, your mum is fab 🙂

  46. can u make a giant snickers or steak

  47. humans are pussies there afraid of micro things that are harmless to them (bugs)

  48. tell your mum start a channel and I'll watch it

  49. Barry you said bitty before you even thought how close you were sat next to the nearest source lol

  50. My late grandma used to eat…I don't know which is cricket or grasshopper…
    …………..
    Oh, now I remember…deep fried grasshopper. homemade.

  51. Can you please do a giant jammy dodger!? 💕

  52. Can you please do a giant jammy dodger!? 💕

  53. they aren't that bad…. they taste like sunflower seeds.

  54. I just love your mom. She's awesome.

  55. just had bitty, bitty later

  56. Omg you guys made my day!

  57. Your Mum is so adorable! I love that you include your family in your videos. Your channel is one of my favorites! You are so original and so unique! 💜

  58. I think you are ready to eat them alive!, will you?

  59. The only crickets I like is the band Buddy Holly was in.

  60. Looks like what you find inside light covers. I can bet that Paul McCartney didn't name his band after insect anatomy.

  61. I love the idea of your mom doing a YouTube channel , I would defiantly subscribe ;3

  62. Barry when you doing the smoked rattle snake? please try it with ashens

  63. When does Ashens get to try other other nasty foods u got? hehehe

  64. "it moved" <3 haha (my (writing?) english isn't very well but I love your videos !all of them! and liked to comment them). You really are so funny

  65. If you ever have an allergic reaction to the weird stuff you put n your cake hole will you not be embarrassed to tell the docs at the ER? lol

  66. Is BITTY from little Britain

  67. Your mum is one hella good sport, Barry. Love her!

  68. omg Barry!! "Bitty…. not right now dear..BITTY!..alright Bitty" ♡Little Brittain & Barry Lewis… much love from Canada♡

  69. Little Britain reference!

  70. I do not round my age up

  71. LOL! Your mom is AWESOME, Barry! 🙂

  72. she is so pretty she can be your girlfriend

  73. I've eaten those crickets before and they weren't bad. I much prefer the Larvettes, which are the mealworm ones. They taste exactly like pork rinds and are delicious!

  74. Here I was thinking that was your wife for a tad.

  75. Bitty, I want bitty.
    I want bitty now.

  76. I bet if you fried the crickets and seasoned them they wouldn't taste half-bad.

  77. Any word on your mum's possible agony-aunt based youtube channel yet, Barry? For work reasons I'm pretty much nocturnal at the moment, and I need something to salve these nights of solitude.
    Anyway, I think it could work quite well. You've got the experience required to tutor her in the enterprise. We'd subscribe and also make sure to be nice to her & so on. Make it happen good sir!

  78. Omg I'm dying!! So funny. Your poor mum!!

  79. I've had the salt and vinegar version of the crickets

  80. Yes, I will subscribe, to your Mums channel. Youtube sounds like a good retirement plan.

  81. The salt and vinegar crickets are so much better to be honest.

  82. Is your mom single?

  83. I'm 33 your mom is hot.

  84. I question your mental status.

  85. I laughed like mad during this video – the expressions on both your faces are priceless!
    Going to add to my favorites for when I need a good laugh!
    You and your Mom are fantastic! 🙂
    Let us know if she starts her YouTube channel please!

  86. In my experience with this brand of crickets, they are ALWAYS stale. I have never once gotten a package that was anything even close to fresh.

  87. I would hate to eat crickets

  88. crickets taste good

  89. Hurrr hurrr hurrr, a cricket gave your mum head.

    Them jokes though.

  90. when you said "want bitty." I died

  91. No way 60 lol, looks more like 40s!

  92. your moms hot man lol

  93. I'd like to try rattlesnake

  94. Did mom ever start her own channel, ??link me if she did ty
