There’s a secret ingredient in these snacks. Can you guess what it is? It’s crickets! Yes, Chirps contains 1 cricket in every chip and 14 crickets in each cookie. Why crickets? Well, according to the ladies that created these creative snacks, “from the amount of land used to how efficiently they use their feed, insects are a major environmental win.” There’s also less fat and more protein in the Chirps chips compared to traditional chips, and they contain iron and B12. The chips come in 3 flavors (Sea Salt, BBQ, and Cheddar) and the cookie mix comes in Chocolate Chirp (clever pun!) with a gluten free and a regular version. They taste good; you’d never know there were crickets in them – maybe just a little more crunchy than usual or a bit of an “earthy” flavor to them. As they say, “eat what bugs you”!
