Okay, maybe you don't, but the Seattle Mariners and their fans sure do. (playful music) So, how did this crunchy critter get a spot next to your everyday concession snacks at Safeco field? It all starts at this restaurant with this guy. - My name's Manny Arce. I'm the executive chef here at Poquito's. The grasshoppers are grasshoppers. You know, they're a delicacy, but they're also a snack. I put them on the menu here as a novelty when we opened, and we kind of just, it's been on the menu for almost six and a half years. I describe them, crunchy like a sunflower seed, um, salty, a little bit spicy. Uh, every once in a while, you get one that's a little squishier than you'd like. We just toast them and then we put salt and some lime and some chili on them. That's about all that we do to them. - [Narrator] It's one thing to see restaurant success, but Manny's grasshoppers became the highlight of going to Mariners' games. - [Manny] When Mariners were saying that we'd be a fit for them, I sent some out. - [Narrator] The response was unreal. As in 300,000 plus grasshoppers sold. - [Manny] We were selling out, you know, before even the first inning, and I started off with 50 pounds, thinking like, oh, this'll last us, you know, a month or two. It lasted us one day. To date, we've probably gone through about a thousand pounds. People want more than, you know, hot dogs and popcorn, and nobody else had been doing it at the stadium, so it's kind of one of these things that I think people just really latched onto and the popularity far exceeded my expectations.
