Lick sal de gusano from your wrist and taste the clean zing of hand-harvested Oaxacan sea salt, the celebratory sizzle of árbol and pasilla chiles, and the umami bravado of Oaxaca's legendary gusano dojo. This is the full mirth and majesty of true Mexican cuisine. Indispensable to drinkers of mezcal and tequila.

The Azetec emperors craved few things more than a meal of roasted maguey grubs. Also called gusanos or chinicuil, they are the larva that feed on maguey and agave plants, the famed worms you see in the bottom of a mezcal bottle. The fear and squeamishness we "civilized" eaters have for bugs and grubs is unfortunate, as the delicate meaty flavor of the gusano is as palatable as chicken, and its texture is no less satisfying than a French fry. 

    Ingredients: sea salt, chile arbol, chile pasilla, gusanos

    So good

    Salty, savory(!), with a balanced kick, we've been enjoying it sprinkled on sliced oranges with and without mezcal sippers.

    Quick service and great experience

    Meadow delivered promptly and the product seems quite nice. Really enjoying it on orange slices with my mezcal tastings. I have not tried any other worm salts so I can't compare on flavor but this has been delicious.
