My wife and I recently conducted a "Bugs Alive" workshop for the public at
our local Nature Center. One of our "static" displays was a "bugs as food"
exhibit including Crickets in creme de menthe lollipops and "Larvetts,"
lightly toasted and seasoned mealworms (three flavors). They generated a lot
of interest and those that sampled the larvetts said they were quite good.
More popular, though, were the traditional lollipops with arthropod handles.
