ISU STUDENTS WILL MAKE CREEPY CRAWLER TREATS
FOR RIPLEY'S BELIEVE IT OR NOT TV SHOW
AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University entomology club students will be preparing and eating insect treats on Monday (Nov.8) morning for a film crew from the TV show "Ripley's Believe It or Not."
Five ISU student members of the entomology club will prepare some tasty bug treats for the film crew beginning at 9 a.m. in room 205 of McKay Hall.
"We'll prepare chocolate covered grasshoppers made in whimsical dinosaur molds, cricket Jello Jigglers and mealworm covered carmel apples," said Gretchen Schultz, president of the entomology club.
In addition to taping the students making their treats, the crew also will interview some of the students. The taping will be part of a segment that will look at people in different cultures eating insects, Schultz said.
