Each great-tasting bar is made with crickets in powdered form and naturally sweetened with honey and dried fruits. The nutritious ingredients and complete amino acid profile make them the perfect meal replacement or post-workout snack. 

 

 

Upgrade your morning smoothie or post-workout shake with our new Cricket Protein Powders. Available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Peanut Butter, each 33g serving is packed with 21g of protein making it both filling and delicious.

 

 

 

We are four young professionals from the West Coast who are committed to leaving the world a better place than when we found it. We believe in breaking conventions, being adventurous, and doing things differently. Our mission is to make delicious insect-based products that become a normal everyday food source to help people live healthy, sustainable lifestyles.

 

We have developed a third flavour prototype for our Cricket Protein Bars: Cranberry Ginger! This bar contains 10g of protein, and the main ingredient is Pacific Northwest dried cranberries. If we reach our stretch goal, this flavour will be made available to all of our backers.

If our campaign reaches $40,000 CDN by March 31 then we will offer 3 new T-Shirt designs to all of our backers who have selected the Sampler Pack or Family Pack pledge. We're excited to have a cricket woven into two of our new badge designs. For us, the cricket is a symbol of fresh thinking and sustainable ideas and we're proud to wear it on our shirts. If you haven't chosen one of the pledges above and still want a T-Shirt, email us at info@coastprotein.com to get set up. Sizes and colours will be selected via survey after the campaign ends.

Risks and challenges

We've already solidified partnerships with a manufacturer and ingredient suppliers so that we're ready to hit the ground running as soon as we raise the necessary capital. Of course, there's no such thing as zero risk. Should any unforeseen circumstances arise, we have also lined up back-up suppliers and built extra time into our delivery timelines to ensure we can fulfill our reward commitments on time.

Most importantly, we are committed to transparency and open communication. Our backers will be the first to know if any issues arise that may affect our delivery timelines.
