Turns out Brangelina's gaggle of children might have even more interesting eating habits than the occasional trip to the McDonald's drive-thru. The kids apparently have a thing for snacking on crickets.

According to a recent broadcast piece for E! News, during a video shoot for Louis Vuitton's Core Values campaign, Jolie admitted that her sons' favorite snack is fried crickets.

"My boys love to eat crickets,” Jolie said. "It's their favorite thing. They ate them like Doritos."

Jolie said that the kids were so into the insects that she actually had to "ban the cricket eating at some point" because she was afraid they were gonna get sick from too many. The family first tried them on a trip to Cambodia, where her son Maddox, 9, is from.

Sounds like the kids should take a trip to Guelaguetza for some chapulines. It'd be right up their alley.
