WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYINGfrom 134 reviews
I have used Crik for about 3 years now. I religiously use it as a shake that I add some frozen fruit to every morning. When I go on vacation I usually take it with me and put some in a shaker cup with water.
I like the taste and I love that it is so good for you. It's an organic whole food that especially is a great source of protein. It's great for a metabolism boost in the morning, and if you eat other healthy Whole Foods and exercise, it helps take off fat and add lean muscle mass. I lost a total of 70 pounds starting in 2008 until 2010. Crik is part of my daily routine that helps keep that weight off and keeps me healthy.
I've been putting Crik in my oatmeal and mixing with yogurt/condiments to ma me my own protein bars for snacks.
I love that your company approach this issue with the environment in-mind (sustainability, environmentally friendly, etc); other than using more water to lower the sweetness (Sweet Vanilla) flavour, how about just omitting the stevia (or use half of what is being used in the present formula). I have tried one scoop with 500ml and 1 litre of water and it must be my taste buds, however I still find the aforementioned flavour too sweet. I don't like mixing my protein powder with other liquids like almond or coconut milk, and am not a fan of smoothies. Maybe a light vanilla, chocolate and natural flavour options. There seems to be too much sugar (regardless of source) laden foods on the market that people are unable to appreciate any food source for its natural taste/flavour. Has CrikNutrition tried testing the absorbability rate if a little coconut oil/MCT is added to water (curious).
Plus, I am not too keen on this product with a higher Omega-6 (inflammatory) value compared to Omega-3 (anti-inflammatory). Though both are needed a higher Omega-3 is greatly preferred in a protein powder. Our modern day diets have us consuming more Omega-6's than we actually require. This product is extremely healthy when compared to other animal based protein, regardless if it is grass/grain fed and organic.
To further the environmental and sustainability message and function, how about packaging this in biodegradable cardboard with individual wax paper sachets or foil (single scoop) or smaller plastic tubs. Shipping and storage would lead to more flexibility for affordability and one could travel with sachets or provide as samples for new flavours.
Great work CrikNutrition Team!! I understand this is a growing industry and love that you are on the forefront, eagerly listening to your supporters to craft an excellent recipe/formula.
I greatly appreciate and thank you for all your assistance Alex.
I am enjoying the cricket powder as a breakfast pre-workout smoothie. It sustains me for many hours, yet leaves me feeling light, as if I'm not having to work to digest. I would recommend it. Thumbs up!
I'm so excited to be sharing my love of this protein powder. Very delicious and satisfying.
I bought the chocolate and sweet vanilla, and have been impressed not only by the taste, but how much easier the cricket protein is on the digestive system, especially compared to every type of whey protein I've ever tried. If you haven't tried Crik, my advice is to give it a shot.
i was a lover of the vanilla but since trying the chocolate my family has forced me to convert hahaha. i still enjoy both flavors myself
I loved the vanilla and now that I've tasted the chocolate I love it too!
I was looking to increase my protein intake but wanted to stick to whole foods. Crik Nutrition was the perfect solution for me. It provides a great snack between meals and tastes great.
Great flavour and very easy on your body to process and digest unlike many whey protein powders. This protein doesn't make you feel like you had a heavy meal after your workout.
Love this product. Did a sampling at a Bodybuilding show and was excited everyone loved the taste as much as we do. It does not bloat your stomach like other protein shakes. It keeps you lean.
You absorb this protein, and grow your muscles is a healthy natural way. Jesus and the Israelites used to eat hundreds of different locust recipes, look it up. I'll put a scoop or two of raw peanut powder or cocoa powder for a delicious taste, but the vanilla alone is delicious as well.
Clean, easy on the stomach. Great workout pumps!
Crik gave me more nutrition than other protein powders. It was very effective in building my muscles after a hard workout. The price is a little higher than other powders, but you get what you paid for. I will stop purchasing the other powders and buy Crik. I'm very satisfied with it.
I really like it, it goes well in my smoothies
As a person who has been looking for a source of protein that doesn’t upset my stomach, this stuff works. I have a smoothie every morning before I start my day and keeps me full til super time.
Very happy to have an option to get a more complete protein than pea based protein and be able to avoid dairy based proteins.
I am loving my Crik Protein because it is the only protein that I do not have stomach issues. I get bloated and stomach ache even with the Organic vegan ones. I am currently only on Crik protein and am so happy. The taste is amazing, especially the chocolate.....
I’m complete fascinating with this protein... and of course I’ll recommend CRIK protein powder I just love it drink after my work out.
I have used whey protein powder for years and I do still buy my favorite brand but I am loving that CRIK gives me a protein option that has zero bloat and gas! I will toy with using it exclusively if and when the prices are able to come down to compete with inexpensive whey. If you are using your protein as fuel and not looking for a milkshake, then you will be happy with CRIK. It doesn't taste bad at all, but it is not like drinking dessert like some protein powders. Very happy!
By far the best protein powder available.
Sweet Vanilla Lovers (3x Combo)
Can't say enough about both the product and Alex! I usually have issues digesting all kinds of proteins and believe me I've tried them all in the past 10 years, but this stuff is clean, great tasting, no fillers, and results are noticeable after my first order. Starts with my stamina which is through the roof, recovery, lean gains, and sex drive is even off the chart.
My family, friends and people who I bump into are very skeptical about the product as they should be, cause there are so much lab proven crap out there and of course who eats insects? Even though it's on a pricy side of the scale it's worth every penny cause it makes sense and it works.
Alex is a great guy who cares about his customers, helped me out when he didn't have to. I'll continue to be a loyal costumer for years to come.
The CRIK crew have done their research and have created the finest protein powder I've ever used in my years of bodybuilding (and I've used at least 10 different ones)!
I really love this product. It tastes good, but it does have a very slight aftertaste. I imagine from the crickets. All the cricket products I have tried have this aftertaste.
Crik protein is great tasting, my stomach does not get bloated or ill. I have a very sensitive stomach and my husband is lactose intolerant and most proteins do not agree with him. He loves this protein!
I bought this product as a protein source for smoothies and was very happy to see the additional nutrients available. The pleasant smell and taste made the product easy to use and in fact I barely noticed any taste change in my smoothies, maybe a slight chocolate or vanilla taste depending on which type of protein powder I used. I let several people who I thought might not be keen on using such a product have one of my smoothies and they all commented on how good they tasted. Packaging with lots of nutritional information, a wide mouthed plastic jar with a measuring cup made using easy. A great logo. Highly recommend.
Product is exactly what i wanted in a protein. I continuosly purchase this item, and i am satisfied each and every time.
Love the stuff
I will be honest, the ick factor hit me pretty hard when I first looked at the shake. I had a hard time getting the first shake down. There were these little dark specs and my mind totally thought I would eventually come across a floating leg. I never did, and to my surprise, I LOVE THE TASTE! By the 3rd shake, I was looking forward to drinking my Crik protein. Bugs are not that bad after all. I highly recommend that you at least try this product.
since when i tried this protein i feel like my body change in a very good way i feel much younger and stronger than i was before
Delicious protein for the type of benefits and ingredients included. It's hard to make something taste good and still have health conscience ingredients. The protein digests and absorbs much better then any protein I've ever tried. Price is definitely not competitive with other types of proteins, although there is no other real competitor in the "cricket protein powder" marketplace, so they can price it however they want I guess.
I’ve used my vanilla every day since I received it! It’s tastes great and blends well with other flavours too. I really praise the environmental side of this product. The product was shipped fast to my house and even provided a tracker. Will definitely order more in the future!

No questions asked.
They're also high in Zinc, Magnesium, Potassium, Omegas and more. Not only are they high in these nutrients but studies show they are more soluble and have better uptake in your body.
