Kiminy’s Crickets

Cottage Food Business

Kiminy’s Crickets sells homemade cricket cookies! We make our cookies with cricket powder, which adds protein, nutrients, and a slightly nutty flavor that fits right in! Crickets are a delicious, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly source of protein. We hope that our cricket cookies will play a small part in making the world a better place!

Kiminy’s is a home-based bakery in New York City’s Upper West Side, offering pickup, local curbside delivery, and shipping anywhere within New York State. Our business is made possible by New York’s Cottage Food Law.

Our current products include Chocolate Chirps, Crickerdoodles, and Fire Crickets. Chocolate Chirps can be ordered with double the dose of cricket power by selecting “Extra Chirpy”. Fire Crickets are available in a Gluten-Free variety. We hope to offer more varieties of cricket cookies soon, including PB&C, Crickets Go Buzz, a few different holiday-themed cookies, and additional customizations for each cookie. We also hope to offer some awesome swag and add-ons in the near future, including reusable tote bags, stickers, greeting cards, and gift packaging for any holiday you’re celebrating.
