Exo Cricket Flour Protein Bars

By: on July 02, 2015

I've eaten crickets a few times. They were whole too, not dried and made into flour like the ones in these supercharged Exo protein bars. The first time I was taking a nap on the lounger in my backyard and I guess my mouth fell open so it was kind of an unhappy accident. But the other two times I actually ordered them off the menu at this Mexican restaurant. They arrived crisped on the outside, plump on the inside, and smothered in tangy chipotle sauce. They were not bad. So I have even higher hopes for Exo's line of energy bars, which add established tasty ingredients, such as nuts, seeds, fruits, coconut, and honey to their crickets.

Created by a 3-Michelin-star chef, Exo bars serve as snacks, meal replacements, or pre/post-workout rechargers. They call the 10 grams of cricket flour protein incorporated into each a "premium source" of the muscle builder. Exo adds no processed animal products, gluten, grain, soy, dairy, or refined sugars to their bars. Just glorious, ground-up crickets.

This Dude Exclusives special gives you the opportunity to try 4 different Exo flavors at 33% off retail value. They are: Cocoa Nut; Peanut Butter & Jelly; Blueberry Vanilla; and Apple Cinnamon.
