Cricket Salt

Only in Portland … cricket salt

Kooky Portland, Oregon, is just the sort of place you’d expect a crowdfunding plea for a gourmet salt brand to take off.

So it’s with confidence that Cricket Flours is Kickstarting its new product, which blends Himalayan pink salt and, yep, crickets. Cricket Salt can be used in recipes or as what it calls a ‘finishing salt’. As in: ‘I’ve finished with this because you’ve sprinkled dead bugs all over it’.

Still, it has already raised cash for a flour brand. We’re sure backers will be jumping at the chance to get involved.
