Cricket Buffet and Cricket Eating Contest

Hot dog eating contests are so yesterday.

Celebrate sustainable food supplies by joining our cricket eating contest! Consume enough crickets to meet your daily recommended amount of protein and get your name in our Hall of Fame.

Need to take it slow? You're welcome to sample a variety of flavors at the cricket buffet. Sriracha isn't your thing? We've also got sour cream and onion, sea salt and vinegar, or Texas BBQ to tickle your taste buds. While you're here, learn how to incorporate cricket powder into your favorite cookie or pizza recipes.
