well.....he eats them alive when he is seeking shock value, Just scoops em
right of the ground, removes the legs and pops em into the mouth.
otherwise he prefers them slow roasted then dipped in carob or chocolate.
He says raw they are gooey and bitter, roasted and dipped they are just
plain crunchy like a rice crispy treat. I have a recipe for meal worm and
chocolate chip cookies too. Sent a box of these to school on a snack day
more than once. ; )
meal worms taste kinda nutty, but again a bitter bite at the end. I aint
never tried any of this stuff. just not hungrey enough i guess.
