Many consumers are now looking to enrich their diets with alternative sources of protein and are looking to plant-based options or insect snacks as suitable substitutes to meat, especially for on-the-go eating. At this year's Anuga, the world's largest food trade fair, Micarna introduced 'Pop-Bugs,' which are "meatballs made with insect flour."

Beyond being notable for their unique formula, Pop-Bugs are packaged in a unique cardboard box that elevates the eating experience. The packaging for the insect snack product is designed to showcase the bite-sized balls and make them easy to pair with the included dips.

A number of forward-thinking brands are now experimenting with the many ways that insects may be worked into food products, as they offer a much more sustainable source of protein than animal products can provide.
