Ewwwwwwww! That is gross!
My brother ate a chocolate covered I sect once. He was the only one brave enough. He pretended they were nice, until he threw up!

Well, I'll leave the mealworms to the ones that enjoy them, Pixie & Tinkerbell. I have a hard enough time not being totally creeped out when I'm forced to touch them and feed them to the hamsters , wouldn't catch one going anywhere near my face, nope. No sir! xD x

My boyfriend is actually from Zambia and thinks eating bugs isn't even a big deal- he liked them salted as a snack. But knowing how wriggly and stuff they are when they're alive is so off putting, I don't think I could get my head past it

The reason why I don't feed meal worms to PROVIDE Princesss is because 1. They smell horrible at the pet store. 2. They're so gross I cannot imagine them in my house. 3. I've tried feeding them and Princess hates them.
I cannot imagine a human eating them by their own free will. Gross ��

OK to make some think twice about enjoying that nice yummy Hershsey Chocolate bar.
Our wonderful Government allows any Chocolate plant to include(Yes INCLUDE) bugs in the chocolate up to a certain percentage. That said if you enjoyed that Bar of Milk Chocolate, Munched down that bag of M&Ms, or yummmm devoured that Dove Bar you 100% just ate Bugs along with the Chocolate LOL. Cricket powder has been used to boost Protein levels in many baked products and is actually a very good source of Protein for Diabetics as it is sugar free. Now to convince me to eat a whole cricket I can see is a Cricket ummm doubt I could unless I was starving and had nothing else I could eat.

I bet Cadbury's don't do that lol! Think I'll stick to plain chocolate just in case

Speaking of M&M's you just reminded me of our kitchen cupboard lol. In the Uk there's an advert on TV for M&M's where someone opens the kitchen door and the M&M's kind of jump out and attack them. Our kitchen food cupboard used to be like that - every time I opened the door something jumped out at me or a tube of chocolate sprinkles fell out or something. I always used to think of that advert! Now of course I have a clinical cupboard full of lock and lock boxes so it's moth proof. No fun any more lol.

Actually I don't mind the idea of cricket protein as a powder, but the idea of crunchy whole things with heads - ugh!

Here's the advert for US members if you haven't seen it

I've never had M&M's ... What are they? They look a bit like Smarties!

I think they are a bit like Smarties lol! I can't remember it's so long since I've had any - I think they are like a slightly bigger version of Smarties - I'm sure they used to be called "Treats" and then they renamed them. There used to be choclolate treats (similar to smarties), Peanut Treats (peanut in the middle) and raisin treats.
