Toasted grasshoppers

These chapulines are the dry variety, therefore they can be used as a finger food or as an ingredient.

As far as edible insects go, chapulines and crickets are the most common insects consumed by people from North America. Since the recent introduction of ‘Toasted Grasshoppers’ at sports stadiums, chapulines are now a fan favorite snack, selling out on game day across the USA. Chapulines are a popular Mexican snack originating from Oaxaca, Mexico..  Tasty, healthy and salty, sour, spicy.

Hoppy & Healthy!

Similar to crickets, they are packed with protein, Omega 3, B12 and many other vitamins and minerals. The chitin, or exoskeleton, is a prebiotic which is food for probiotics. They’re considered a superfood.

The best reason to add them to a menu is that they are great tasting. In North America, they’re an exotic addition to tacos and all Mexican fare. Your guests will be talking and posting about their experience. Most agree, they are fabulous!

We carry three flavors:

  1.  Sal y Limon Chapulines
  2.  Sazonados  Chapulines
  3.  Adobados  Chapulines

These are traditional chapulines imported from Mexico.

Size: 1 Ounce (30 grams) | 1/4 Pound | 1 Pound | 5 Pounds

Ingredients: Grasshoppers, lemon, salt, garlic and chile

Note: Orders of five pounds and above will be packaged in resealable zip-lock style bags.

    Just like I remember! These chapulines bring back great memories of the mercados we visited outside of Mexico City. What started out as a dare became one of our favorite snack foods.

  • Where Do People Eat Insects?

    Billions of people worldwide include insects in their diets. Our southern neighbor, Mexico, enjoy nearly two hundred different edible insects. Worldwide, there have been nearly two thousand insects identified as edible.

    The most famous of which, here in the states, are Chapulines. These spiced grasshoppers gained acclaim when they were served at Safeco Field in Seattle during their 2017 season.

    Here in Maine, there are stories about woodsman, trappers and loggers that would eat Black Ants to ward off scurvy since Black Ants are rich in vitamin C. Today, we eat insects here in Maine because they taste great and they are good for us.

Edible Insect Allergies

ALLERGY INFORMATION

If you are allergic to shellfish or crustaceans, you may also be allergic to insects.

Please Also Note: Products may be from manufacturing facilities that process milk, eggs and peanuts.

Cricket protein is similar to beef and salmon when it comes to quality protein. It has all of the essential amino acids and is packed with B vitamins with a perfect balance of an Omega 6:3 ratio of 3:1. In addition, crickets have more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. The cricket’s chitin (exoskeleton) is a prebiotic just to top it off. ×
Crickets can be grown using less than 1% of the water needed for an equivalent amount of beef. Insects produce virtually no greenhouse gas when compared to beef and can be grown on bio-waste reducing the need to use land to grow their feed. Bugs are an environmentally friendly food source. ×
Insects need substantially less land than other livestock and can be grown vertically in an urban environment. They are grown humanely and can be grown just about anyplace in the world by households, small farmers and large commercial interests. Insects for food is trend whose time has come... again. ×
Current meat production is unsustainable and the more insects people eat, the less meat they will consume. If we make edible insects a trend in North America and Europe, the rest of the world will follow. ×
