In September 2018, we wanted to offer edible insects for sale and founded Bǚg Bazaar webshop to become an international bazaar for edible insects, insect products, and insect protein powders. We also sell so-called "decorative insects", ie insects that are not officially allowed to be sold as food in the EU even though they have been produced as edible insects for humans.
Bǚg Bazaar is owned by Crickets Online Oy. Today, Crickets Online Oy's main brand is Party Bugs. Party Bugs was launched at trade fairs in Germany in January and February 2020 where it received a lot of attention and praise from international distributors in particular for its superior flavors, stunning packaging, cheerful image, and consumer-friendly prices. We warmly recommend trying Party Bugs yourself!
In 2018 the newly founded Crickets Online and Muurahaiskauppa brand co-operated which resulted in Muurahaiskaupan BBQ-crickets. That product, which was developed and 100% financed by Crickets Online, was sold in dozens of shops and restaurants in the Helsinki metropolitan area. It was Finland's first edible insect product made of whole, flavored and roasted insects. After the launch of Muurahaiskaupan BBQ-crickets, Crickets Online has concentrated on its spearhead brand, Party Bugs.
There are many reasons to eat bugs.
Also, nature loves insectivores. Insect food can help us in keeping the food system within environmental limits. To get a kilogram of beef one needs 12 times more feed, 15 times more room, and 22 000 times more water than growing a kilogram of insects. The insects offer a new lasting, ethical, and delicious way to produce the proteins which are necessary to all of us.
Entomophagy, which describes the practice of eating insects by humans, has long traditions and has always been around. Ancient Romans and Creeks luxuriated with insects and theFrench still crunch grasshoppers between wine glasses. Cockchafers were considered a delicacy in France, Germany, Italy, Moldova, and Valakia long until the 20th century. We all eat at least half a kilo of insects every year hidden inside and as a part of our regular food.
Insect consumption is prevalent in 80% of the world, and 2 billion people feast with edible insects. Their insect food recipes are waiting for you!
