At Cybercandy you can buy lollipops which have mealworms (and scorpions and various other things!) in the centre...

Righty! onto the next line :D

Green squashed pea: Im hoping it tastes like a pea.. reminds me of sunflower seeds, nice and crumbly... tasting it...
URGGHH!! really sour / tangy taste, like eating a blade of grass.. Aftertaste of cardboard..
*rating YUCK!!*

Yellow squashed thing : Well.. im hoping this one is a sweetcorn! Rock hard.. cereal taste, difficult to nom, sharp flakes, it
does have a faint sweetcorny taste though.. not bad..
*rating 3/5*

Locust bean : this thing looks gross.. very sweet taste! comparable to dry pineapple bits found in musli. Fruity taste / raisen
like but "twiggy" texture.. I'll happily eat this one! aftertaste is caramel
*rating 4/5*

grain: horrible twiggy skin on outside, inside is sour cereal mush, cant swallow it as its too sharp.. after taste is musli
*rating 2/5*

Alfalfa stick: now i know why my lot dont eat them.. gross cereal taste, stick makes a horrible texture, outside sort of
dissolves away.. sweet tasting but not pleasant!
*rating 1/5*

two little grains: same as grain above.. not a nice experience but edible!
*rating 2/5*

Righty.. onto the line of doooooom!!!!

P@H wild berry drop: I'm secretly hoping this is yummy, certainly smells nice.. mmm! lovely! first taste is very berry with a
nice creamy feeling. texture is a bit odd but i could eat the rest of the packet!
*rating 5/5*

Dry sweetcorn off a stick: harder than a bald doorman in brixton.. i cant physically nom it.. just a hard bean like thing.. taste
of nothing!
*rating - I cant eat it!!*

THE MEALWORM!! : doesnt smell of anything.. crispy texture, just like a dry cornflake, bits stuck in my mouth errk! but really
not that bad!
*rating - 2/5*

The triangle thing: Just turned round to get it and one of the cats have scoffed it! Will have to test it in the next installment!

LOL its not a rat raisin! needless to say, i have accidently nommed one of them though! :oops:

You can also get them in vodka. My OH has had the scorpion one, I think he needed the vodka to make eating a scorpion seem like a good idea :lol:

I've recently discovered I really like the ancol crocodiles. The big ones though - the little ones are too small for me to nibble properly. And the algae ones aren't very nice - too bitty :oops:

I made MR eat a cricket last year. Silkworm pupae is next on her list from me.
