Angelina and Brad’s adopted sons are so hooked on the edible insects that the couple have had to ban them from over-indulging!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt first gave their boys crickets to snack on, to help them stay in touch with their heritage — they’re popular in Southeast Asia where Maddox, 9 and Pax, 7, were both born — and the pair were instantly hooked! Would you eat an insect?

My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing,” Angelina Jolie, 36, tells Us Weekly.

“When I first gave it to them . . . I wanted them not to be turned off by something that was of their culture. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn’t stop. They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many.”

Angie has even tried them herself — and she’s a fan too: “They’re good. They’re like a potato chip.”

But the adventurous actress draws the line at one Asian delicacy — tarantulas on a stick!

She says, “It does seem like an odd thing to eat. I don’t know if I can get around the fur.”

What’s the craziest thing you’ve fed YOUR kids, HollyMoms? Can you beat that?
