Reader Morena from shared her experience with a Pinterest-project-gone-wrong – Gelatin Worms! The tutorial and this awesomely gross bowl of worms can be found at Instructables.
Morena’s worms, however, couldn’t be coaxed from their straws without looking like bloody, blown up worms. Which is also awesomely gross… but Morena wasn’t too thrilled about the walls looking like a crime scene from projectile gelatin.
She admitted defeat and told her kids to just suck the worms out of their straws to get them out. There was a bit of redemption with the discovery that when the worms were sucked out, the sound of gelatin being rapidly dislodged from a straw is disgusting (and naturally hilarious to kids).
So while Morena didn’t end up with the squirmy, wormy treat she set out to make, it was still a win for Mom.
