Mr Bug unveils latest mealworm food range

Mr Bug’s mealworms are brought up on locally grown fruit and veg bought before being lightly hand-baked in small artisanal batches.

Mr Bug has unveiled its latest, nutrient-dense range of wheat-free, bug-based treats made with mealworms.
According to the retailer, mealworms are filled with nutritional value: offering more calcium than milk, more B12 than salmon, more iron than spinach and all nine essential amino acids.

The new range includes:

  • The Nutty One – Mealworms PLUS Peanut Butter and Turmeric
  • The Fruity One – Mealworms PLUS Honey, Cranberries and Apple
  • The Veggie One – Mealworms PLUS Sweet Potato, Carrot and Parsnips
  • The Cheesy One- Mealworms PLUS Vegetarian Cheese and Beetroot

Mr Bug said its mealworms are brought up on locally grown fruit and veg bought before being lightly hand-baked in small artisanal batches.

Conal Cunningham, Mr Bug founder, said: “It feels like we’ve now reached a moment when sustainability, planet-responsible practices and a more personalised approach to our dog’s wellbeing have reached a crescendo and thoughtful pet parents increasingly crave tasty snacking solutions made with ‘real food’ and no added salt or sugar, back-of the-barn meats or over-processed synthetic nasties.

“Today modern dogs are living longer than ever before so are naturally vulnerable to a greater array of historically under-appreciated ailments. The growing influence of pet humanisation meanwhile ensures that the pet owner’s inevitable self-inspection has spilled over into wanting a better grasp of the family dog’s nutritional intake and wellbeing.”
