Crickets for breakfast – yes, says President’s Choice

Danika, our photographer at Nourish Food Marketing, tested out the President’s Choice cricket powder in her breakfast. Her verdict?

I’m all for this stuff – it’s high in protein (13g for 2 1/2 tbsp), has a neutral flavour (they even recommend baking with it on the package), and it’s a more sustainable food option. I hope it gains more mainstream popularity because this small bag was around $12 if I remember correctly

We’ve been observing the rise in insect protein for some time now. We even served mealworm pasta at one of our parties, to great acclaim. Seeing this kind of product on the shelves with the President’s Choice brand should help it enter the mainstream.
