There is also a type of tea, which claims to have been picked by trained monkeys.

The range, called Edibiles, was also on sale yesterday at Harvey Nichols' new Glasgow Pop Up shop, which will be open in the St Enoch's centre until Christmas.

"People are always looking for something different and the selection of Edibles from all over the world could not be any more different," the Scotsman quoted a spokesperson for Harvey Nichols as saying.

"We picked the favourite treats on offer from around the world.

The sales are doing really well, and top of the list is the chocolate covered scorpions, followed by the Civet coffee," the spokesperson said.
