Exo protein bars are made from ground-up crickets. While it’s true that insects have a higher feed conversion than most mammals, in terms of efficiency, and that crickets don’t taste bad (for bugs, at least) these are still garbage. They contain twice as much fat (20g) and carbs (23g) as protein (10g) and have an insane 300 calories each.
This means that actual pan-fried bacon is a less-fatty source of protein than an Exo bar.
Also, the macros for 2 White Castle sliders (280 calories total) are 14g fat, 28g carbohydrates, and 12g protein, meaning you’re better off driving to White Castle and eating two hamburgers than eating this processed bug-mash.
