People Get Tricked Into Eating Cricket Protein Bars


– I knew when you said trendy protein bars there was something that made it trendy. (funk music) I think I can already guess which one I’m gonna like better, and I think it’s this one that looks
more like a chocolate bar. – It’s good. One of the better ones I’ve had. – I would argue that it’s moist. – It is very moist, which a
lot of people hate that word. But it is very moist. – It’s 2017, people. Get over it. Moist. – Ladies don’t like that word. – I actually really like the texture. – I would eat this for
multiple meals in one day. – The more I eat it, the
more I’m a fan of it. – It’s very hearty, like this
small bar feels very filling. – Bar 1 for sure. – Yeah, Bar 1. Absolutely. – This is the winner. – I like this one. I like that it’s light
and fluffy on the inside. – I like this one better, ’cause it’s got bits of nuts in it. That for some reason, in my mind, makes it feel more natural. – I think I like this
one a little bit more than I like this one, just because this one’s a lot more unique in terms of the texture. – I’m curious to see
what’s in them, actually. (funk music) – Right off the bat, for my
Snowpiercer fans out there, this particular bar looks
exactly like the bar that’s in that movie, which is very off-putting if you’ve seen Snowpiercer
with Chris Evans, because that bar in the
movie is made out of 100% cockroaches, centipedes– – Are you feeding us
stuff that’s like that? Does this have cockroaches and
centipedes and caterpillars and other? – Please don’t tell –
– [Producer] No, no cockroaches, no
centipedes, no caterpillars. – I was gonna say, just don’t tell us. Even if it did, just don’t tell us. – Just on the looks of this,
I don’t know if you can see the little flaccid pieces there, but you’re gonna have a
good poop with this bar, I can already tell. – Doesn’t taste very fun. I don’t like this. – The seeds look like insect shells. – Don’t say that. (laughs) – I don’t like it. The texture I’m not enjoying. – This does it for me, I’m about this. – I’m not a fan of it. – Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I’m grossed out. I’m all set. – I think I like this one better. – I like it. I think the texture’s really fun. – This is where she tells us these were made out of dog parts. (loud blast) – Oh my fucking god! Get the fuck out! – I knew it! I knew there was something
off about this one. – You can’t trust nothing
at this damn company. – Can’t believe I ate crickets. – [Voiceover] Yay! – I like when you asked me earlier if I had any dietary restrictions. – Now we know. – Like, cause I’m gonna
serve you crickets. (cricket cries) – So, this had crickets in it. – [Producer] Yes. – The one you liked. – I actually really like this one. I actually really like it a lot. I really like this. – I eat cows, pigs, chicken, – True. – So, what’s a bug? – Look, it’s more water efficient. – I totally understand the need for sustainable protein sources. – I think that it’s doing a
lot of good for the world, and it’s not like I’m
actually getting cricket in my teeth. – Are they free-range crickets? – That’s a…
– Because I know, like everybody has all these issues
– That’s a great question. – with free-range chickens and cattle. – [Man] I think that’s a fair question, “Are they free-range crickets?”

  1. So hate to be a nit pick here, but all those pictures were of grasshoppers, not crickets. Just saying.

  2. I love how they're trying to come up with ways to get protein like that when you can just get it from plants

  3. For whatever reason the idea of eating bus doesn't weird me out at all. It's the non-common (at least in the US) parts of meat that freak me out. Give me a cricket bar over some pig knuckles any day and I won't even blink.

  4. Dude in the thumbnail always looks like he's on the mf verge of actual death…or is it just me??

  5. "you can't trust nothing at this damn company!" most honest thing i've heard about buzzfeed in a while 😂

  6. …which is very off putting if you've seen Snowpiercer with Chris Evans because it's made out of 100% cockroaches… lol when I went to watch Snowpiercer, my friend gave me a brown protein bar which looks exactly like the bar in that video. when I saw the scene that people got the bar made out of cockroaches for their meals I almost threw up the bar that I ate even though it doesn't contain cockroaches.. she intended that! gosh

  7. Who else other than the guy with the glasses and I thought of Snowpiercer when they saw that protein bar?

  8. in the beginning I knew that wasn't a cricket there. because I think crickets look like roaches. But I just think grasshoppers are SOOO CUTE

  9. I'm actually really glad to know that these exist and the chocolate ones are good. I'm super allergic to dairy and can't have soy, so my protein bar options are incredibly limited. Now if only these weren't $39 a dozen. 😐

  10. I've eaten homemade chocolate truffle things made from honey, nutella, coconut and ground up cricket – It was the most amazing thing I've eaten in my life.

  11. My mom tricked me into eating crickets. They were terrible even when I didn't know they were crickets and I had them because of my vegan sister.

  12. You know that one short from Rick and Morty? Where the GF's BuzzFeed tricks human into eating some weird chocolate that sends them to multiple dimensions across the multiverse (IF I SEE ONE FUCKING NERD I–) then basically kills them? This reminds me of that.

  13. 2000 gallons of water for 1 pound of beef?
    Who's selling these farmers water and where can I get this!!
    1 pound of beef is like a few bucks if I can get 2000 gallons for that price I'll be so happy!!
    I'd sell the water at .50$ a gallon and buy more beef!!!

  14. My boyfriend got me to eat one of these today, I didn't see the big deal about the crickets lol. It tasted quite bland though I think….my boyfriend himself didn't want to eat that himself though lol
