Cookies Made With Wasps

Some Japanese cookies are generating some serious buzz.

Residents of a Japanese village are adding wasps to rice cookies, giving them a unique flavor.

The wasps are caught in the forest then boiled and sprinkled over the cookie mix.

The trend started about a week ago, but is already popular in the rest of the country.

The village is overwhelmed with orders for the treats but can't keep up because they use wild wasps.
