Take the spices; leave the larvae.

There was a place near me when I was growing up that used to make chocolate covered ants. I tried them once - didn't even taste the ants. I felt kind of ripped off.

They are.
These are actually "meal worms".
The same thing that you feed to pet lizards, etc.

As food

 
A Chinese dish of mealworms from a Yunnan restaurant


Main article: Entomophagy
 
Mealworms are edible for humans. Baked or fried mealworms are marketed as a healthful snack food. They may be easily reared on fresh oats, wheat bran or grain, with sliced potato, carrots, or apple as a moisture source.
Mealworms have been incorporated into tequila-flavored novelty candies. Mealworms are not traditionally served in tequila, and the "tequila worm" in certain mezcals is usually the larva of the moth Hypopta agavis.
Mealworms are typically used as a pet food for captive reptilesfish, and birds. They are also provided to wild birds in bird feeders, particularly during the nesting season. Mealworms are useful for their high protein content. They are also used as fishing bait.
They are commercially available in bulk and are sold in containers of bran or oatmeal. Commercial growers incorporate a juvenile hormone into the feeding process to keep the mealworm in the larval stage and achieve an abnormal length of 2 cm or greater.[5]

I used to be a big fan of the Larvets, but their new album, "All Grown Up," lacks the visceral squirm of their earlier work:

Interesting?  No.  I'm not interested in the least.

Well, you're obviously not a drummer then.
The original post was directed to drummers only!
This a a great nutritional feed for drummers and it also mimics their natural habitat.

So drummers must consume the wriggling flesh of mealworms in order to augment their powers of drumming?
 
Do the mealworms come in different stats, or even different musical buffs?
 
Mealworm of drumming +1 - the most basic form of nourishment for drummers.
 
Superior Mealworm of the Pianist +5 - these are the rarest and most expensive of the mealworms, and all of which must be given to Bhav.
