    Have any of you ever tried true cream ale, not the stuff you get at supermarkets. It's actually not bad and I usually don't go for those kinds of drinks. I like some of the specialty beers that come out around Christmas time too.

    As in actual worms?? SO do they preserve the worms or something to get the taste or what is it for??

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    yeah, i think it's honeslty for no reason at all. i also belive its more like a meal worm than an earthworm. i think its more or less a tradition and serves no purpuse, other than tell if you got drunk enough off the bottle to eat it when you get down there.

    From the link:

    The Worm

    Unlike Tequila, some Mezcal Brands have a worm inside their bottles. The belief that the worm grants aprhodisiac powers comes from prehispanic cultures. The worm lives inside the agave plant and it can be of two types: white or red depending on the place of the plant from which is obtained.

    The worms live in the agave plant and are hand-harvested during the rainy summer season. They are stored in mezcal, drained and sorted, and placed in bottles near the end of the process. The worm is what makes mezcal unique; it is added as a reminder that it comes from the plant from which the alcohol is made. Like the drink itself, the worm is something of an acquired taste.
    Legend, you never heard of the worm?? It's been a while since I've seen one in the bottle, but I recall them being long and thin, kind of gross looking.

    Re: Favorite drinks

    I never had a worm. I want to see what all fuss is about tho. I'm assuming it will get you drunk off your A$$ almost instantly.

    But I usually drink hard alcohol. I don't really enjoy beer too much. Kamikazes are my current fav drink tho.

    The reason I will never drink Tequila is because of the worm.
    If I wanted to eat a bug I would eat those candy things made with worms in them.
