Insects, The Next Best Thing? (Crobar Review)

The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit. - Morihei Ueshiba

Recently I wrote a post about the hype surrounding protein drinks, well I'm back on my fitness wave, however this time it's about energy filled, protein bars, especially Crobars*. Crobar isn't like your regular energy bar, you wouldn't notice it, or even taste it, but they use cricket flour as one of their main ingredients. When it comes to health and fitness, America is paving the way with new trends, waves, and fitness fads. The UK in comparison is slowly trailing behind, until the introduction of Crobars, I hadn't heard much about insect-infused food in England. The most common snacks that I'm aware of are chocolate covered ants, even Miss Selfridges are involved with insect candy, so there must be a demand for it.

The majority of us can admit protein bars are tasty, my personal favourite is peanut butter bars. There's a high demand for peanut butter snacks, thus brands such as My Protein, Bounce, Pure Protein and others prosper as they've noticed the trends. Crobar is similar to their competitors, a bar full of nuts, seeds, and fruit with an added twist of 6% cricket flour. You don't even notice the taste of cricket flour as all the other ingredients over power it, yet you reap all the benefits from it. For me personally, I have a sweet tooth, so the fusion of empowering flavours was a bit too much. I like simplicity and sweetness, however, it was a great opportunity to try something new.

Why choose insects I hear you asking. Well, when it comes to the environment insects are easier to farm and are filled with protein and other nutrients. An estimated 80% of the world are already enjoying over 1,900 edible insect species. Cricket flour could actually be the next new super food this year; move over kale, and goji berries, crickets are here and they're here to stay. Crobar, the food that's good for everyone.

What are your thoughts on the brand?

Until next time, stay blessed and classy
