Caption: Mealworms on candied apple. View of a candied apple covered in edible mealworms. Mealworms are the larvae of the darkling beetle (Tenebrio sp.), which infests granaries and bakeries. Other larvae which are found in meal and flour are also sometimes called mealworms. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes moths, grasshoppers and ants. Insects, along with arachnids like spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. This apple is made by the Hotlix candy company, California, USA.
