The UK-based food company 'Gathr' recently expanded its existing line of cricket bars by adding two new gourmet flavors. While snacks made from cricket flour are becoming extremely popular among conscious consumers, many of these products are intended to be functional rather than flavorful. The newest Gathr bars give consumers an alternative snack option so that they can enjoy an ethical source of protein without sacrificing flavor.
The new snack bars from Gathr are made from cricket flour, which is considered a more sustainable source of protein than other animal-based ingredients. In addition to the brand's existing Peanut and Cacao flavors, the bars now come in Coffee & Vanilla and Raspberry & Cacao flavors. These adult-oriented flavors are meant to enhance the taste of the fruit, nuts and cricket flour in the bars for a more gourmet snack option. The cricket bars are also free from gluten, dairy, soy and added sweeteners, meaning they fit into a wide range of diets.
