Hmmmm....I probably wouldn't. First ingredient is sugar, and there are artificial flavors as well as food dye.

I wouldn't give my crabs much sugar, if any at all, they can have sparing amounts of cane sugar though, which is the natural form of sugar.

So, to be on the safe side, avoid feeding this to your crabs.

Like everyone else I would avoid it as well. It contains Yellow Lake 5. It is banned in several European countries but is still commonly used in the US. EU countries tend to be a lot stricter with their food regulations than here.
