I sampled a bar made from cricket flour http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/2016/11/post- weight-loss-surgery-menus-day-in_29.html tasted like a LaraBar basically you wouldn't have known the difference... except I KNEW and mentally I couldn't get over thinking about it as I was chewing... but lots cultures/countries have no issues with insects and many use them already in foods so if it helps world hunger awesome.

I'd never heard of cricket flour. I was SO hoping it was a brand of specialty low carb flour...not the main ingredient. I really can not even bring myself to do any research because crickets are...icky.

I didn't think I could dislike crickets anymore than I already dislike them.

I was wrong...haha!

By Grabthar's hammer...what a savings.

I have eaten crickets --- we had a cricket farm here in my city until there was a water issue for human consumption. I have eaten them fried and salted -- they tasted very similar to sunflower seeds, in a protein bar, and as a flour. The flour is very heavy (if you have ever used coconut flour, it's dense like that) and I would recommend to cut it with regular flour if you are also cooking for "normies" -- as things are too heavy otherwise.

Considering the infestation of them I just had eradicated from my garage, there is no way I could knowingly eat one. There are right up there with silverfish on my list of most hated bugs!

Many experts on climate change and world wide food shortages believe that insects will be a primary source of protein. Actually in some places they already are!

I'm sure that insect protein will become normal at some point in my life. I've tried the snack crickets (sour cream and onion, for example), and I liked them, although they were a little dry. I hadn't heard about the cricket flour, and I'm interested in trying it out.

If I was going to starve to death unless I ate crickets I would. But there are so many protein foods, Why eat insects? I don't think that anything God made is unclean, but ick!, unless there were no other choices.
