If you want some practice—or are just looking for a unique snack to offer your friends—you might want to spring for some Chirps Cricket Protein Chips.
Chirps are a good gateway food. Rather than forcing you to go full bug right away, they’re made out of about 10% cricket flour (the rest is corn, beans, and chia seeds). They also look and feel like your standard salsa vehicle, although they’ve got a bit more heft to them, as well as a slightly nutty taste. Thanks to the protein, I find they also fill me up faster than regular chips.
