Announcement! Why We Are Switching to Using Cricket Flour (april fools!)

Our search for the perfect high-protein, nutrient dense flour is now over! We are thrilled to announce that effective immediately we are switching our base flour to an all natural gluten-free cricket flour.

Thailand Unique, the vendor of cricket flour (and other edible insects and bug-related products) raises crickets on commercial farms and feeds them a healthy diet of mixed grains and vegetables and raised in clean hygienic conditions. The crickets are processed at an FDA approved factory and the resulting flour is 100% natural, with no preservatives, artificial colors or added flavors. In addition to being a good source of protein, the flour provides a good source of iron and B12!

We plan to use the cricket flour in all of our breads, muffins, cookies, and even cheesecakes! We can't wait for you to try our new and improved gluten-free cricket products!

This is fake, right?

Yes, indeed. April fools!

I don&;t know if this posted on Facebook already. I really really enjoyed your April Fool&;s post. You and Irvin Lin of Eat the Love did fabulous jobs of posting as if you were dead serious. With both, it took a few seconds to sink in, then I started guffawing. Not something I do regularly. Thanks for a good laugh.

:) So glad you enjoyed! Funny thing is there was a lot of interest! Would be an interesting experiment for sure.
