Wake up, make yourself some coffee … and eat an energy bar made out of crickets?

One Austin company is betting that you’ll change your habits, just as long as you don’t mind eating bugs. John Tucker is the owner of Hopper Foods, which makes a protein-rich, gluten-free energy bar made out of cricket flour.

The company’s Kickstarter campaign, which ends tomorrow, has already surpassed its $30,000 goal to ramp up production of the bars.

Tucker joined Texas Standard host David Brown and producer Brenda Salinas – samples in hand – to talk about what goes into making cricket bars – and how he’s going to convince you to try one. Listen to the interview in the player above.

So would you be willing to eat a Hopper bar?
