Maddox & Pax Jolie-Pitt Munch On Crickets (Yes, BUGS) 'Like Doritos!' Yuck!

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?
