Put these on top of rehydrated soups, and meals for an added protein crunch, or eat them by themselves on your next hike. Made in Belgrade, MT from Cowboy Cricket Farms crickets and all-natural ingredients, Cowboy Cricket Farms Jumpers are a sustainable snack for your everyday needs!

Verb Energy

Coconut Chai and Simply Cocoa Bars

You shouldn’t have to settle for energy that doesn’t make you feel good. Verb was made because founders were tired of jitters, sugar crashes, and headaches. Verb combines organic green tea caffeine with healthy nutrients in a delicious, ready to eat snack for a long-lasting energy boost. These bars have as much caffeine as an espresso in a 90 calorie package.

Boikey's Biltong

Traditional Biltong

Boikey’s Biltong is prepared in the traditional South African way. Their naturally cured, high-quality beef is air-dried, never cooked. The result? Unbelievably tender slices of perfectly seasoned meat. Biltong is packed with 30-40% more protein per serving than you find in most traditional jerky. It’s an incredible snack by itself or added to a backpacking-type meal that needs a little more meat. Whether you’re hitting the trails, the road or the books, Boikey’s Biltong goes where you do.
