We want to fix our broken food system by getting people excited about eating bugs.
What began as a failed attempt to feed fried crickets from the pet store to our dorm-mates has since transformed into a small business with “bug” goals for the future of food!
From breaking the world record for the world’s largest nachos (with a crickety twist) to making a deal with Mark Cuban on Shark Tank, we have come a long way from those days when even our closest friends wouldn’t go near our food.
In the beginning, people told us to hide the fact that our products have insects in them and to just talk about the nutritional benefits. That’s not us. At Chirps, we believe in our mission and we want to get people excited about eating bugs, one delicious cricket chip at a time.
If eating bugs is wrong then we don’t want to be right!
