Jimini’s Protein Bars Review | Edible Insects

How do you feel about insects? Your mind might initially go to….

Cute?

Evil?

But has your mind ever gone to… food?

That’s right. I’ve been a fan of ‘insects as food’ for quite a while now (you can check out Exo Protein and CroBar on my blog, too), because they come with a myriad of health and environmental benefits:

  • A natural source of protein.
  • More iron than spinach.
  • High in vitamins, minerals and omega 3s.
  • Require fewer resources to farm than cattle.
  • Release 99 per cent fewer greenhouse gases than cows.

And, to add another string to my insect-y bow, I have found a new cricket flour company doing natural protein bars.

Jimini’s Protein Bar Review

Jimini’s uses insects from France, processed by hand, and compacts them into a delicious protein bar. They use a range of insects: crickets, grasshoppers, mealworms, and more, so you can sample every type of natural protein source.

Each bar is gluten and dairy free and are high in fibre, protein and iron. I tried three: the banana & chocolate; apricot, goji and chia; and apple, cinnamon and caramel. The best?

APPLE. CINNAMON. CARAMEL.

Comprised of dates, whole almonds and dehydrated apple, this really is one of the gooeist, mmm-iest natural snack bar I’ve tried. At the time I was dying for some sugar, so I wasn’t too heartbroken by the 9 per cent of caramel in there.

However, if you want a Jimini bar which isn’t so moreish it will throw you off your healthy eating diet, then I say go for the apricot, goji and chia bar. The goji and chia give it gorgeous texture, while the apricot taste ripples through every bite.

Take a look at the Jimini’s website for a look at their range of insect pasta, spices, and more protein bars.
