Let me introduce you to the newest craze! CRICKETS! I cannot begin to tell you all the amazing things about Cricket powder. I was completely oblivious to this even being a thing before my good friend Stefanie started Coast Protein almost 2 years ago. Crickets are a sustainable, dairy and gluten-free protein that is not only good for the environment, but is incredibly good for your health. How are they good for your body? Crickets are not only a great source of protein, but are have a valuable amount of calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, omegas, minerals and other vitamins. They are a complete protein and much better than filling yourself with the usual whey, soy, or other protein options. Cricket Powder is also better for the environment. They require less water, less land and produce less greenhouse gas emissions. Something great about this company? They are a fast growing small group of motivated individuals looking to make a difference. And they definitely are! They will be planting 10,000 trees this June as well, talk about giving back to the community! Now for the taste test! They currently have 2 flavors of protein bars;
- Peanut Butter – made with yummy peanuts, apples, pears, honey and cricket flour of course! Taste test – this is a fantastic bar. I have tried countless protein bars over the year and I would have to say this is a favorite. It tastes like the inside of a Reese Peanut Butter Cup! Seriously!
- Dark Chocolate Raisin – full of cocoa powder, raisins, sunflower seeds, honey, vanilla extract, chocolate chips and cricket flour! Yum! Taste test – ooo another great flavour here, kinda reminds me of Raisin Bran which I love! Hard to pick a favourite here!
A third flavor will be released once they hit their KickStarter goal! Spoiler Alert – It’s Cranberry Ginger! Yum! Either way it’s interested to try the flavours, I couldn’t taste anything that would make me think there is cricket flour in them so I will be a future buyer of these for sure! Got kids? They’ll love them too! My 3 year old nephew is a picky eater and he absolutely loves these! They will also have 3 flavors of protein powder coming out; Vanilla, Chocolate and Peanut Butter – the perfect addition for your protein shake or smoothie!
