    I have no idea how these taste because I am lactose intolerant but I am giving them 5 stars for cuteness! I made these for a baby shower where I happened to know the baby's nursery theme was ladybugs and they were a huge hit with the expecting parents!

    I don't like tomatoes, so I made this to bring to a New Year's party. They were a big hit! Thanks for the great recipe. I had a problem finding black food coloring so we made them without the "spots" and they still looked as cute as can be.

    These are AWESOME. Have made many, many times. Always a hit with a crowd and never any left over. Don't assemble too far in advance, the crackers will become soggy.

    My 13 year old and I had a great time making the little beetles and they were adorably cute. They were also very tasty but the crackers became soggy quickly, (perhaps because of the high humidity on the day we made them). I think using a better quality cracker, and maybe slightly less sour cream, might have prevented that. We took them to a party and had a lot of compliments on how cute they were. I'll definitely try the recipe again.
