Not every entrepreneur in California espies his or her fortune in the nooks and crannies of the Web. Some look deep into the recesses of our history as a species for their inspiration.
Didn't we make a go of eating grubs once upon a time?
Take a look at this: LARVETS. They're sold in convenience stores and truck stops. From Bakersfield to Kingman, from Fortuna to Fontana. A scant palmful of larvae. Enough to still your appetite for invertebrates for awhile, at least until you get to the next rotting log.
You've seen these maroon packets: they're right next to the tequila-flavored suckers with a solitary pupate relative (imprisoned like a beetle in amber). Dave's brother-in-law has made a nice fortune this way. No Web page, no slick graphics, just salted and spiced Worm Snax in three comfortable flavors.
Don't you wish you'd thought of it?
