I used the worms during Halloween Science. I shared with the students how other countries in the world consume insects and I showed a few examples. I pulled out these worms and told students they could try one and get a sticker. They thought it was totally gross and couldn't wait to pop one in their mouth. I teach 550 students each week and most of them tried a worm. I've been flooded with emails from parents thanking me and telling me their child came home bragging about eating a bug. HUGE HIT!

Corn Nuts?

Everyone who tried them said they tasted a lot like Corn Nuts. Only a couple people couldn't get over the fact that they were insects.

The Other White Meat

These meal worms ARE a meal worm. A great topping for yogurt, in the Faculty Room. But I really enjoy giving them to my students on Halloween. They generate great classroom discussions about sustainability. And, they even conform to our school district's Health Foods policy. I would never consider purchasing them from any other source than Educational Innovations.

They're not super tasty but definitely not gross. I bought them because I'm currently experimenting with my own insect recipes. They were a hit at the party I brought them to.

Granted my students weren't Emitted to eat these, I did...talk about a discrepant event and getting kids talking about Science!, The students couldn't stop buzzing about it and happily and excitedly they told their friends & families.

Great for the Classroom
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 22, 2012
I have been a science teacher for four years, and I love using these in the classroom as incentives. The kids want to try them, and those who don't want to see ME try them! I pretend not to like them, but they really taste good--and it's a good motivator to get them to study if they want to see me eat them (they all have to get a certain grade or higher for that.). Great product!

Tastes like CornNuts!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 16, 2012
I always buy a couple boxes of these at CAST or NSTA. Fun to use when teaching insects after you talk about the life cycle. I have mealworms in my classroom, so this really grosses my kids out as I snack on them during class lecture. Then I offer them up to anyone at the end of class. Usually I have one or two brave kids (I teach high school) who will try them. They usually like them and that convinces others to try them. I then talk about how the US is one of a few countries that doesn't readily include insects in our diet. We look at nutrient content in different insects to incorporate another teaching standard.

These "snacks" are a great way to teach students to respect differences in cultures, explore alternative food sources, or just gross them out.
