The Kids were excited to try them, but not so excited about the 'boiling alive' part. We let each of the kids take turns holding them before dropping them into the pot while I sang "Lobst-a Kill-a!" (Go see the Movie Julie and Julia if you haven't already :)
Although they look excited to eat the little bugger in this picture, none of them were very impressed. I'm not sure if it was the idea of eating the little creature they had just kissed goodbye, or if they really didn't like the meat. The only one who ate any (after he initial taste), was little Bushkin (2), who porked out! The other kids ate cereal for dinner instead!
