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.
I did not specifically enjoy the taste as guarenteed, but I was able to drink it. The taste was very metallic, which I assume was the cricket exoskeleton. A little odd with just water, but it wasn't so bad when mixed with milk or almond milk. Thanks for letting me try it out!
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!
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.
The problem with crickets is that we don't have a relationship with them that involves them as protein source..however that hurdle is easily overcome with one glass of Crix.
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.
For me it tasted way too strong, cannot just hide it by adding other flavor. But still good enough.
Product is exactly what i wanted in a protein. I continuosly purchase this item, and i am satisfied each and every time.
I think, for me. I had a high expectation for this product. For the price, the cricket factor, and organic, it just wasn't what i expected. I like the idea of crickets for the benefits, but it was just too darn sweet for me. And because of the price and taste i had to give it a 2 star.
I hope this helps.
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.
- I love the nutritional values of this shake. It's packed full of a lot of great things.
- Keeps my stomach full and great source of energy.
-To me using invertebrates as a food source is just cool.
- The taste... I just can't drink this straight (not really chocolatey tasting). It's almost salty tasting. I have to blend it with a banana and even then, I'm not so fond of the flavor. But a lot of people like the taste, so maybe it's just be me.
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!
