For us Westerners, eating bugs is pretty much unthinkable, although escargots come pretty close. However, entomophagy, as it's officially called, is very common in other parts of the world. In fact, it's done in about 80% of the world's nations.
With our ever growing population, growing livestock such as cows, pigs, etc. is extremely polluting and it's only getting worse. Growing insect is 10 times less polluting and the return is much higher and cost effective.
Products containing insects are emerging more and more, and protein bars are becoming quite popular.
Crobar ran a successful Kickstarter project earlier in 2015, and came out with 2 creations:
Both bars are made with dates & sultanas as a sweet base, and then depending on the flavour, the additional ingredients. Both bars contain 6% cricket flour (about 32 crickets)
They taste delicious, not too sweet and just perfect for a quick snack on the go or with a coffee ;-)
All ingredients are 100% natural, and the big question is: do you taste the crickets??
Personally, I've eaten crickets before, but I can honstly say you don't even notice the bars contain cricket flour, so no worries!
Give Crobars a try, you will not be disappointed!
