      A lot of fun to make, they do look so real. Just a tip for the next person, make sure the flexible part of the straw is facing down in the carton. My son loved them.

      So sorry that I forgot to review this. We used this almost 2 years ago! for my daughter's sweet 16 party where we played Fear Factor games. These really looked real. We did have a bit of trouble with the first few, but then we found that holding the end of the straw with needle-nosed pliers helped a lot. Also, be sure to run the worms under hot water long enough. We were afraid that they would melt, but found that if you do it correctly, they will remove with ease and have a glossy appearance to them. Thanks for a great gross-out recipe.
