Haters Gonna Hate


by Kaitlin Holliday June 17, 2015

Since starting Exo, our protein bars have received incredible feedback from our customers, and some great press as well.

We’ve also received our share of hate mail, from internet trolls to the flat-out squeamish. Some of these comments are simply too great to keep to ourselves. Check out the best (worst?) below. And to all of them we say:

You can air drop that into North Korea, it’s an upgrade from tree bark. I will stick with eating the usual avian creatures and mammals. – Steve R.

You guys are shameless charlatans, snake oil peddlers! [Look it up! Am sure you don’t know the meaning of it] – Nicolas H.

Do you know why we don’t eat bugs in the United States? Because we have better food sources that were made naturally for human consumption. You “environmentally conscious” morons can eat bugs and #$%$ for all I care. – Bryan H.

HELL NO!!! I FUDGE SOMEBODY UP OVER THAT. – William P.

That’s just stupid and cruel and sick which unfortunately describes most of humanity. – Monica R.

#$%$! If Michelle “Marie Antoinette” Obama gets wind of this she’ll want bug meat served in school cafeterias. If times ever get so tough that I have to choose between cannibalism, eating my dog, or eating insects, OK, pass the cricket flour crescent rolls. But Geeezus, can’t we wait until then? – Mike L.

Epic bodybuilding FAIL d-bags! – Mike M.

You don’t have to go to collage (sic) to know you can eat bugs, my 3 year old figured it out by herself, didn’t need a degree from Brown University. – Rachel W.

How much longer before these idiots try to get us to eat our own #$%$? – Dan O.

The only reason people eat insects and other such garbage is because they live in countries with food shortage. “Insects generally are very high in protein; crickets in particular contain around 64 percent by dry weight and that protein is very good quality, so it contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs.” Really? Great! Then YOU can eat that S|-|iT! This is nothing more than propaganda to elicit a mentality of “Hey, its okay.” So i guess we shouldn’t be sending food aid over seas, instead we should send barrels full of crickets and other insects. Sounds great! – Phil V.

He attended a ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE aka a U.N. Agenda 21 Global tyranny conference. The elites will have the nuts, we will eat the bugs. SO TRENDY and COOL to eat bugs BRAINWASHING. Probably Asia Society’s Academy for Global Studies 3rd world country Common Core camp dinner options… Bah!! Katniss was reported as saying “You eat the bugs President Snow along with your environmental wackjobs”! READ: Behind the Green Mask by Rosa Koire. – Matt E.

About eating insects, United Nations recommends to eat insects or “third world shit”, as you say it, to fight world hunger. – Dan N.

Hipster crap at a whole new level. – Damien S.

Why crickets are the future of protein

by Jess Tran December 02, 2016

At this point, you’ve probably stumbled upon an article online that proclaimed crickets as the future of protein. It’s hard to escape. Global Market Insights reports that the edible insect industry will be worth over $522M by 2023, and with a wave of new investment, media coverage, and athlete endorsements, the tide is slowly turning in cricket protein’s favor.
