A new range of savoury crackers made with cricket flour are preparing to launch in the UK.
Small Giants Crackers come in three flavours: Tomato & Oregano, Turmeric & Smoked Paprika, and Rosemary & Thyme.
According to the brand founders, the crackers offer consumers a ‘great way’ to eat insects ‘without the yuck-factor’.
“As attitudes towards edible insects are changing, we want to bring excitement, innovation and new consumers to the savoury snacks market which has seen little change in recent years,” said co-founder Francesco Majno.
“Forty-two percent of British consumers are now willing to try eating insects. We’ve created a planet-positive insect-enriched snack that tastes great and offers a genuine alternative to those wanting to cut their consumption of animal-based foods and find an alternative source of protein.”
The crackers will launch for sale 30 October 2020, available direct from the Small Giants website and via Amazon.
