The Irresistible Taste of Mealworms: Nature's Nutty Delight for Dogs
Updated: Sep 25
When it comes to treating our beloved dogs, we all want the best. We want treats that are not only delicious but also healthy and ethical. At Mr Bug, we've gone a step further by focusing on one key ingredient that checks all those boxes: mealworms.
Mealworms might not sound immediately appetising, but dogs absolutely love them! Mealworms offer a naturally nutty aroma and flavour that is remarkably similar to crispbread. But why do dogs find mealworms so tantalising?
The Natural Nutty Appeal
Dogs have an instinctual attraction to flavours and smells that mimic what they might find in nature. Mealworms, with their naturally nutty and earthy profile, hit the mark. This means we don't have to add any synthetic flavours or additives to make our treats appetizing. The mealworms are delicious just the way they are.
100% Natural Ingredients
When we say our Bug Bites are 100% natural, we mean it. Every ingredient that goes into these bite-sized treats is completely natural, from the mealworms themselves to any additional herbs or spices used for different variants. There are no artificial flavours, no preservatives, and certainly no filler ingredients.
Proudly UK-Sourced and Produced
Our commitment to quality and ethical sourcing doesn't stop at the choice of ingredients. We are proud to say that every element in our Bug Bites is sourced right here in the United Kingdom. We believe in supporting local businesses and minimising our carbon footprint.
Even better, our mealworms are bred and harvested at our DEFRA-approved farm in Devon. This ensures that the mealworms used in our treats are of the highest standard, ethically raised, and completely sustainable.
A Treat Dogs Can't Resist
Mealworms naturally have what dogs desire: a taste and smell that call out to their most primal senses. It’s food the way nature intended, and it's food that dogs unequivocally love.
So next time you reach for a dog treat, consider making it a Bug Bite. With their natural, nutty taste, it's the kind of treat your dog will do more than just sit for; they might even learn a new trick or two!
