These Protein Bars Are Made From Cricket Flour


Has the Paleo craze gone too far? These Exo Cricket Flour Protein Bars are said to have been developed by a “three-Michelin-starred chef”, which we’re presumably being told about to convince us they don’t taste like crap. The fact remains that they’re made from flour derived from an insect. That wouldn’t be so bad on its own, since insects are indeed more protein dense, and are even being considered as a solution to world hunger. But each bar packs in only 10g of protein, while clocking in between 280-300 calories. That’s not a whole bunch on its own, but for how little protein you get, we’re a little let down; we thought the point of putting up with cricket meat was for its higher protein load.

The bars are “Paleo Compliant”, and come in Blueberry Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon & Cacao Nut flavours. It’s $10 for a sampler three-pack.

Fart Code App Evaluates Food According to Fart Power

Fart App

Everything you put into your body eventually comes out on the other end. If it’s bad to begin with, then you can expect it to be a wee bit worse by the time it passes through your digestive tract. An app that checks out the nutritional value of food by way of “fart power” is the Fart Code app.

Once it’s all fired up, just use your phone to scan the code on your processed food of choice. The app checks out the food’s individual ingredients and uses an algorithm to determine how toxic a fart would be, based on those ingredients.

Fart Code is available for iOS and you can download it for free here.
