Superworms vs Mealworms

I know this question has probably been beaten to death but i was looking for some input. I always just figured people didnt really use superworms since they are overpriced at $18+ per 1k

Supposing both the mealworms and superworms are both 3/4" and the same price at $8 per 1k

Which is the preferred?

I know mealworms have been one of the most common feeders for ages. But it seems like superworms are much better

They are nearly the same nutritional. Superworms have about 1-2% more fat.

They dont have to be kept cold to prevent pupa

Much more active providing the thrill of hunt for your loved reptiles.

I personally feel super worms are superior .

I do not know the nutritional value difference from meal worms compared to super worms. But if they are closely to the same value, then I don't see why you would use meal worms (besides the price).

They are MUCH more active and I don't think any reptile can resist them. I wish they were cheaper.

Doesn't seem like it's outrageously overpriced though- have you seen the prices for roaches?
Maybe like double the mealie price, but if you get the large ones, its worth it- no pupa and like other guy said, it's really active.
