Explore with a chirp on your shoulder
Crickets are a nutritional powerhouse with a low environmental footprint.
"Let's just get it out of the way: these are legit good.
I've had many protein and meal replacement bars in the past, but never a particular allegiance to one product. Most have some redeeming qualities and then some downsides (usually a bad aftertaste or terrible texture or tons of sugar and saturated fats, etc.). This bar manages to balance it all out perfectly, and layers on the wonderful aspects of sustainability and animal welfare. It's also nice to read an ingredients list that isn't full of synthetic materials, additives, and the like.
Having never before tried cricket protein in a bar, I was pleasantly surprised to find the bars just flat out taste good! They have dense nutrition and a dense build, but aren't too bulky...really a solid option for packing during hikes and travel.
Overall, I'm quite impressed."
