Too bad when I was a kid there wasn't a guy in our class who ate crickets that everybody called the "Cricket Boy", because I would have liked to stand up in class and tell everybody, "You can make fun of the Cricket Boy if you want to, but to me he's just like everybody else." Then everybody would leave the Cricket Boy alone, and I'd invite him over to spend the night at my house, but after about five minutes of that loud chirping I'd have to kick him out. Maybe later we could get up a petition to get the Cricket Family run out of town. Bye, Cricket Boy.

I made it super easy on you guys and developed an actual protein powder out of them.
It's called Crik Nutrition and comes in Chocolate or Sweet Vanilla.
Everyone loves it, only downside is the crickets are much more expensive than everything else since all other farming is subsidized and on a much larger scale.
There are so many benefits to it, it's crazy. When I first heard about it they were talking about protein bars but they didn't really have that many crickets in them and were packed with sugar so I looked for a powder but no one was doing it.
If you want to give it a try shoot me an email through the website and I can get you a code.Founder of Crik Nutrition - Protein Powder made with Crickets
Nutritious - High in K, Ca, Zn, Mg, Cu, Fe, Protein
Sustainable - 2000x less land & Water, 100x Greenhouse Gases, Grows 12x Faster
... and it actually tastes awesome.
