Are Crickets the New Kale? [product]

Exo:  Cricket Flour Protein Bars.  The company’s website touts the many benefits of crickets as a sustainable protein: Aside from being higher in protein than both beef jerky and eggs, they also have more than twice the iron of spinach. But perhaps more important is the stated environmental impact; crickets produce 100 times less greenhouse gases than cows. More about the bars (HERE).   When you try one, you let me know:)
