High in protein, these fully toasted chili-lime crickets and pumpkin seeds are deliciously tangy and have a kick of spice.
Toss out those processed potato chips and snack on something a little more adventurous and a lot more nourishing. These planet-friendly protein snacks were born at San Francisco’s beloved community kitchen La Cocina.

(“Bugito” is a play on “bug” and “eat-o.”) A more ecological protein source than beef, these tasty critters are bursting with flavor, crunch, and fun.
