4 Valentine’s Day Candy Ideas for Bug Lovers

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking of what Valentine’s Day candy you are going to get that special bug lover in your life. Many options are available when it comes to bug candy. There’s chocolate bugs, gummy bugs, and even bug filled lollipops.

To make it easier for you to find perfect gift, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most delectable bug candies. Enjoy!

Chocolate Bugs

Forrest Gump taught us that, when it comes to a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get. Now you can really surprise your valentine with chocolate bugs.

Thailand Unique offers a savory selection of chocolate bug candies. You can choose from grasshoppers, crickets, superworms and more. You can even have your bugs smothered in white chocolate if you prefer.

Insect Suckers

Tootsie Pops are great, but sometimes it’s nice to try something new. Spice things up with a Hotlix insect sucker and find out how many licks it takes to get to where the bug is. These creative candy makers have a variety of flavors and bug combinations to choose from. Get a sucker filled with worms, ants, and crickets. And if you’re feeling daring, scorpions are also available.

Sometimes one lollipop isn’t enough though. If that’s the case, get an entire box. That way your significant other can enjoy insect suckers for the entire year. Who knows, maybe they’ll even share one with you.


Your valentine isn’t into chocolate? That’s okay. Hotlix also carries another popular bug treat called Crick-ettes. These are bags of delicious, edible crickets. The mix of flavors include salt n’ vinegar, bacon & cheese, and sour cream & onion. Choose the one you think your valentine will like the most or get all three and spend the day sampling them.

Gummy Worms

Gummies come in all shapes and sizes, but Gummy Worms are by far the most prized, just below Gummy Bears that is. For those who aren’t quite ready to eat real bugs, Gummy Worms are a great alternative.

These yummy Valentine’s Day candies come in both sweet and sour varieties. And as a bonus, they are fun to play with too.

Happy Valentine’s Day from U.S. Pest!

We hope your sweetheart enjoys your valentine’s day gift. But if they don’t, just remind them we all eat bugs anyway. Candy covered bugs just let you choose which ones go into your stomach.
