Markus5: Mealworms.  It's right there in the name.

Yes. In fact I've had some deep fried before. The thing is they are quite literally kept in a bunch of cornmeal which they gobble up. They're living Fritos.  At a youth science center I volunteered at we had a lot of those little buggers to feed various other critters. It was kind of a right of passage to eat some fried mealworms.

/ I'm not too sure how healthy they are after being fried and seasoned, though.

Mealworms have much lower cholesterol than crickets, so there's that.

Back in the 70's and 80's they sold giant mealworms called mighty mealys, i raised them for bait.  Wheat bran and cornmeal for litter, raw potato or 2 cut in half, cut side down. Put all that and your leftover bait in a regular sized bucket with a lid, and forget about it for a month, voila, more bait plus grubs and beetles. Replace potatoes as they dry out.
I think my record was nine bluegill from one mealworm. By the third fish it was just the husk of the worm on the hook but hungry bluegill don't care...

Lived with an entomologist years ago. He was always cooking up snacks. Garlic fried mealworms, crunchy cricket fudge. Try them, he'd tell us. They're delicious.

The EU has clearly been taken over by parasitic beings.
