Mexicans love to eat insects!
Thus, we designed our barbecue-flavored crickets with bars and catering companies in mind and tested it with real Mexicans. They all loved this product!
Potato chips and salty nuts are so last millennium … The new snack for this generation is made from edible insects! Mexican BBQ may even be the best snacks with drinks, and therefore, the best place to display this product is alongside beef jerky and other salty snacks!
As a salty product, it is a perfect alternative to popcorn or potato chips.
This product is available in both hot and less hot taste variations!
You can eat Mexican BBQ as such or use it like a dried onion on top of salads, sandwiches, and Mexican food.
As our crickets are not deep-fried but roasted, our crickets do not contain trans fats that are so common in traditional snacks.
We have Mexican BBQ also as a milder variation without chili in our other web store Bug Bazaar.
The most common comment about this product is:
Our crickets may not be the cheapest because we only accept the best!
After an extensive comparison, we found a top certified and socially responsible cricket farmer whose crickets are the most delicious on the market.
Farmed and roasted house cricket (80%; acheta domesticus), salt, sugar, paprika, black pepper, maltodextrin, cayenne pepper, onion, natural aromas, chili, turmeric, cumin, nutmeg, acidity regulator (E296), and flavor enhancers (E635; E621).
Farmed in Thailand. Seasoned and manually packed in Finland.
Our crickets come by sea from Thailand where they grow in tropical 35 degrees Celsius heat which is optimal for crickets. As a result, the carbon footprint of our crickets is much smaller than with insects produced in the heated production facilities of the Northern Hemisphere.
Our cricket farmer follows The Business Social Compliance Initiative ( BSCI ) is a leading business-driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain.

Insects may cause an allergic reaction to those who are allergic to, for example, dust mites or shrimp. Food allergens are proteins. Sensitization to insect proteins is possible, just like to any other food proteins. The proteins that insects contain are similar to the proteins of e.g. crustaceans and mollusks. Thus persons who are allergic to prawns, for example, may have an allergic reaction from insect food. Insects may contain traces of gluten.
May contain rests from gluten, sweet lupine flour, sesame, soybean, and fish.
