Tried It Tuesday: Chapul Bars + Cricket Protein Powders

August 29, 2017 at 2:02 pm

I’ve been known to try anything once – and some things twice. I’ve eaten grasshoppers in South America and ants somewhere in Asia.

They sent me a note asking if I wanted to check out their pillows. I said, “YES!” They believe “doing great things begins with waking up well.“ I agree. Urban Mattress…
