T-Shirt Design

The Six Pack never looked so good! Soft, with a slight v-neck, this unisex t-shirt is flattering and once you put it on, you won't want to take it off. At the $75 level or higher, you can have one to show off that you support eating bugs to all your friends!

 Designed by Alex King

Risks and challenges

We have worked really hard these past few months to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Although we don't anticipate any hurdles, they might arise, and if they do, we will be completely transparent with you. Below are some possible hurdles:

Recipe Changes: As we finalize the process for commercializing our products, we may need to make slight recipe changes to maximize taste and ease of production. This could change ingredients and nutrition facts slightly, but we will keep you updated!

Delays in Shipment: Although we have planned to have extra time, there is a possibility the product will be delayed due to unforeseen supply chain or production issues.
