Folke has carved his own niche in the culinary world by concocting confections with all sorts of different types of insects.

Selling insect-based sweets has proven to be quite a challenge for Folke due to Germany's ban on breeding insects for human consumption.

Of the one million known types of insect species, only about 2000 are edible. However, insect breeding requires much less resources than raising livestock. The UN and other global organizations have attempted to break the apparent taboo about eating insects that keeps most people very wary of even any dishes which anything creepy or crawly.
