Popcorn, hot dogs and nachos are some classic stadium snacks that can be found at big sporting events—but Aketta is introducing a new option that is crispy, savory, sustainable and packed with protein.

Concession stands at the Philips Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, are now serving seasoned cricket protein snacks from Aketta.

Seattle Mariners' Safeco Field has also served the snacks, which were so popular among fans that they sold out. After hearing of this success, the Hawks culinary team inquired about getting Aketta cricket snacks stocked in the Philips Arena. A special Sweet-N-Spicy Cajun Crickets flavor was developed specifically for the stadium and its fans. In terms of taste, the cricket snacks are described as being "crunchy like chips and savory like sunflower seeds."
