Jimini’s Protein Bars Review | Edible Insects

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




Insects The Beetles Rhino Animals Horns

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?



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.
