maggots of the world unite and protest
I bet they are chock full of protein and calcium.
turtles love 'em.
These are not maggots. They are mealworms.
Yeppers, meal worms. big difference between fly larvae and mealworm beetle larvae. The ones I tasted weren't as good as sunflower seeds though. Maybe it depends on what the mealworms were fed.
When this delicacy was showcased at the CA State Fair, celebrated Sacramento radio personality Don Geronimo eagerly – perhaps even lustily – partook, with no ill effects (and with great glee on Geronimo's part). These are farm-raised maggots, not those harvested from decomposing corpses or anything. Geronimo's now on during morning drive-time on KHTK radio in Sacramento; this is just one example of why I'm addicted to the show.
this can't be the same Don Geronimo from DC who ruled afternoon radio with his Don & Mike show that ran for about 20 years? His wife was killed in a car crash and that devastated him. I thought He retired shortly after that. If this is the same guy, I'm glad he is back on his feet and I hope he has found happiness again.
You never know what you're capable of if pushed. In the case of starvation or eat maggots, who knows? Bury them in a cheese sandwich and and you could have yourself a deal.
I hope I never have to find out. ;)
Couldn't agree more! The thougt and visual of eating those maggots/mealworms I find utterly repulsive, but if I had to eat them, I know I would.
