Chocolate & Sweet Vanilla (Combo)

Great taste

The chocolate taste good but vanilla is my favourite :-) Both favour are great choice

Good product

The product is good and the customer service is outstanding and replies quickly to customer email.

Amazing Taste

I would buy this protein again just for the taste. After reading New Rules of Lifting, I realized that the only way to properly get all 9 essential amino acids was to eat real, living things. When I saw this solution, I was sold. Tastes great, metabolizes great (apparently), i wouldn't buy anything else! Must try!

Great to hear you're loving it and seeing the benefits of the whole food ingredient :D Thanks Kyle!
Rough taste

The texture and taste is hard to stomach. Even when mixed with almond or soy milk.

Hey Michael, I'm so sorry you to hear we didn't meet your expectations in the flavor department. Our chocolate does have more of a bitter taste cause of the pure cocoa we use for flavor.... and I probably should have named it that or dark chocolate. If you try using less liquid it will make the shake much sweeter and creamier tasting which is how I usually do. If the cocoa just isn't your thing and you want to try the Vanilla, shoot me an email and I'll do whatever it takes to fix the issues. alex [at] criknutrition [dot] com Thanks for your order and review as it really helps us grow and improve!

Love the taste and love the energy boost I get in the morning! The vanilla tastes great in coffee

Thanks so much for the review James.... I'm going to have to give the coffee thing a try myself!
Good but too much vanilla flavor for me.

I was looking for something to add to smoothies and the vanilla flavor overpowers all the fruits and other flavors. I guess it might be better just mixed with water or milk.

Hi Tiffany, sorry if it came off a little overpowering. I usually use about 3/4 of a scoop in a 900 ml (30oz) smoothie and can barely taste the vanilla at all. We're doing a bit of reformulating and will have something to better suit a smoothie for you. Let us know if you have any other suggestions.

Good

Thanks Frederik :D
Love this

I love the flavor. I make a protein shake every morning w/ Crik. I also love the benefits of getting whole food nutrients from an organic source.

Thanks so much for the review Mary :D
Protein and environmentally sustainable.

The taste is pretty good, but very strong, you might want add more liquid. Overall it mixes well except that last sip. When I contacted customer service they were fantastic and I love when products are environmentally more sustainable.

love the flavor and its the only protein I use now.

I really love the chocolate lovers because it is a great deal and gives enough protein to last me about 3 months. The protein is great, and it doesn’t leave me with a bloated feeling like other protein. It did take me sometime to get used to the hemp, though.

10/10 would recommend. Great taste, great results, and an amazing mission.

Best protein I've ever used.

Always recommend it to others.

A great tasting chocolate protein powder that mixes exceptionally well with water.

A great tasting chocolate protein powder that mixes exceptionally well with water. Not too sweet, not chalky, A++. Also, no bloating or anything else I normally associate with protein powders. This product is the way of the future.

Awesome service, good follow up.

Awesome service, good follow up. I'm very happy with my order.

I was hesitant to buy this because I wasn't sure about the price or taste. I ended up mixing it with vanilla hemp milk instead of water and it tastes great! Also tastes good without it but I like the nice addition.

My favorite part is that it's guilt-free! This powder is packed with so much natural nutrition. I have a fast metabolism so naturally it's hard for me to bulk up, but after taking this I am hitting my daily macro goals and seeing results!

Tastes very good!

I totally love it! I love the taste! At first I thought it was a bit grainy in the mouth, it's not like those foamy textured protein powders, but I got used to it and I love it!
I put some in my oatmeal in the morning. It gives a savor to it and it is really good!
I like the nutritional benefits from it as well.
Also, it does wash easily, it doesn't stick to the glass or bowl even if it dried a little. Bonus! lol

I became aware of this through the Paleo community and the taste is surprisingly good.

Phenomenal product.

Phenomenal product. Extremely delicious. I could not get enough of the product

Good taste.

Good taste. Kind of gritty and salty. Very expensive. Over $80 for a small tub with exchange. Would not buy again due to cost.

Tastes good, LOW SUGAR!

Never fear, there is no "bug" taste.

Never fear, there is no "bug" taste. The chocolate tastes really good and similar to other protein powders, except this doesn't have that metallic taste other powders can have. I love that this is sustainable and not chocked full of ingredients you cannot pronounce. I haven't tried the vanilla yet but the chocolate is a winner in my book so far!

New pantry must have!

I originally wanted one chocolate and one vanilla, but accidentally order 2 vanilla, and it worked out! I am pleasantly surprised at the flavor! I have used it on its own and mixed in with smoothies. I especially value the sustainability of using protein from cricket, hemp and pea sources versus animal/whey. Crik will certainly compliment my whey protein supplements. Satisfied customer and I will likely continuing using this product! Looking forward trying other flavors!

Very tasty protein!

I loved the taste!

I loved the taste! It mixed very well and I would love to buy it again! It's priced a little high for me, but overall the protein powder is one of the best tasting out there. I really like all the benefits from it as well!

Good stuff!

Good stuff! It does have a different taste than other powders but after a few days it's my preferred flavored powder. Great to have a protein powder that checks all my nutritional boxes as well!

$$$??

Tastes good and I like how I feel using it, unfortunately I can't afford it. I buy pea protein and a or a whey protein-organic-grass fed- all that good stuff for 59.99 for 75 servings. This is the same price for 20 servings. How can protein from a cow be so much cheaper? Think about the cost to take care of one cow? I don't get it?

I would be happy to :

Since adding Crik to my daily protein shakes I have seen an increase in my energy level, I'm. More mentally alert and sleep better. I've been eating an almost vegan diet for almost 10 years and Crik appears to be a very valuable addition to my diet. Did I mention that it tastes great? Why, yes! It does!

Yours sincerely,

Tim Jelfs

tastes good and mixes well with other powders.

tastes good and mixes well with other powders. Dissolves well to a point but then gets gritty at the bottom

I feel good after I have worked out and drank the powder mixed with water.

I feel good after I have worked out and drank the powder mixed with water. It is not the best tasting protein drink I have ever had, but I am willing to sacrifice taste for the environment. I will buy more when this container runs out, but I do wish that it was a little cheaper.

Best protein powder out there. Hands down. I know because I have done extensive research on protein powders for my functional and regenerative medical practice. I incorporate Crik protein into my patient's health, weight loss and performance plans and see excellent outcomes.

I have been wanting to try this product for a long time, but was reluctant because it contains stevia as a sweetener.

Several years ago I tried a soda with stevia in it and got an itchy weird feeling in my mouth immediately afterwards, I assumed this was caused by the stevia so avoided products containing this sweetener ever since.

It was brought to my attention that one of the unrelated supplements I was consuming on a daily basis contained stevia, which I was unaware of. This product had been working really well for me and convinced me to give stevia containing products another chance.

I immediately bought some of the chocolate Crik and have been taking it about every two days for the past while with no issues at all.

I love the extensive amino acid profile of Crik. The high protein & iron per calories helps me stick to my diet.

Crickets are a prime example of a "superfood".

Taste very good, better then most proteins.

Taste very good, better then most proteins. When mixed in a shake, still get a slight grainy taste, as it doesn't completely mix in, but all in all, really good.

tastes great but i would like to see some new flavors

Price is too high. Love everything else.

Good

It was fun trying a new protein powder. The cricket powder was grainy and did not dissolve well in liquids. It would probably be best in a smoothie or mixed in with food.

Awesome!

As a professional athlete (currently training for the Red Bull X-Alps, billed as the "hardest adventure race on Earth") protein powders are a necessary part of my daily diet. I've tried all kinds of whey-based and plant based protein powders and this one is the best. Absolutely delicious and packed with goodness. Absolutely delicious!

Not the best tasting and mixes quite poorly.

I purchased the Vanilla protein powder and have been pleased with the effects and taste.

I purchased the Vanilla protein powder and have been pleased with the effects and taste. Taste-wise, it tastes pretty much the same as any other protein powder. I am not bothered by the idea of eating insects, so I really didn't notice anything different nor did I proliferate on that.

I would say on the overall effects, it has been surprisingly filling. So much so, that I have shifted how I drink it. I make a large 40oz smoothie in the morning with about 2 servings of protein powder. I then drink a bit in the morning as I get hungry. I noticed that it seems to fill me up faster. Then, over the course of the day I sip off of it.

You probably need to make a smoothing you really enjoy the taste to continue drinking any protein smoothie over a long period of time. I add peanut butter, a little low-sugar yogurt, banana and frozen raspberries and really enjoy it.

I love crik nutrition protein.

I love crik nutrition protein.
Having a sustainable source of protein that tastes great and delivers the protein you need is what everyone who uses protein supplements should be looking for.
That being said the sweetened vanilla has a better taste than the original and seems to have better mixability as well.

My new go-to protein powder.
