Have you tried Crickets yet???

That’s the first thing you see when you go to Exo’s website. They’re not shy about using Cricket Flour as the primary source for their protein, and in my opinion, why should they be. It’s pretty awesome really. Crickets and insects in general have recently been making the rounds as a sustainable alternative to meat. Not to mention that 80% of the world already regularly eats them. So put away the taboo idea of eating insects and check out some reasons why you should give them a try:

  • Crickets produce 100x less greenhouse gases than cows.
  • They require way less water than other meats at 1 gallon/lb. Chickens are next best with 567 gallons/lb, then pigs at 800 gallons/lb, and of course cows are the worst with 2,000 gallons/lb.
  • For every 100 lbs of feed, you get 60 lbs of edible cricket protein. Compared to 30 lbs of chicken protein, 15 lbs of pork protein, and only 5 lbs of beef protein.
  • Gluten-free, Soy-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free, and Paleo-friendly!

But all the facts in the world may not get you to eat a cricket if it didn’t taste good. You’re in luck. These Exo bars are super yummy! I’ve sampled a few flavors, and we stocked up on my two favorites: Apple Cinnamon and PB&J. And more good news, I’ve only bitten into like one cricket thorax! I kid!! You will never bite into any cricket parts. It’s only cricket flour. Just like you’ve never enjoyed the many pesudo chicken parts that are in a chicken mcnugget, you will never taste an actual cricket. And these crickets are actually good for you and the environment. It’s really a win-win. Give them a try next time you’re in, and click the pic to learn more. #GetSomeCrickets!!!
