Grub bars are an all new sustainable protein packed bars, but with a difference. grub bars, eat grub, natural, energybar ,nutritious ,sustainable, edibleinsects, healthy livivng, healthy food, healthy snacks, proteinThe thing that differentiates them from the rest and make them so high in protein is the fact they are made with cricket powder. Yes you heard right. Eating creepy crawlies is not as gross now especially since ‘I am a celebrity’ launched. I ask the question though why has noone been taking it seriously. I mean they have such a high protein content, and are far more sustainable to herd than cattle. So I was a little excited when I heard about Grub bars and they sent me some to taste. Maybe I am so open minded, as like co owner Shami I witnessed the excitement of a whole town eating flying termites when I lived in Africa. I never did dare try one.

I still have never thought it as odd, I think its a natural thing, better for us and the planet. So with my open mind and a little apprehension I started to tuck into my bars.


Taken by coconutty surprise with this one. A lot of so called health chocolate bars, well they dont satisfy real chocolaty that fix you need. However these were super rich and decadent, with a subtle coconut crunch running though. I enjoyed having the crunch to the bar, it adds texture. It took you to a slight paradise. I enjoyed this one as a great alternative to a chocolate bar, when I’ve biked somewhere for a picnic. It just gives you that little lift.


This was a lovely fruity little number. I could tell as soon as I opened the packet and got a big citrus waft up my nose. It wasn’t as rich as the chocolate one, but I liked that. It was still sweet just not as indulgent. Its funny as it kind of reminded me of a healthy jaffa cake. It was nice to have big chunks of fruit with the cranberry adding a tart twist.

All in all I would recommend these bars. They are of really nice consistency, with plenty of moisture, texture and flavour. There is a great choice depending of whether your feeling indulgent or fruity. I mean you completely forget the fact you are eating crickets. These bars are sustainable in so many ways the protein and high fibre content keeps you fuller for longer. The bars are 12% protein and personally I these feel more natural and healthier than a shake. They also have no added sugar but you wouldn’t tell as you get a great hit. As well as this it is far more sustainable to have a cricket farm. I tell you Grub bars are the protein hit of the future.
