CWDs would feed on grubs in the wild, which is why most have an aversion to crickets/locusts/roaches in captivity. There are plenty of grubs you can try feeding your CWD; silk worms, calci-worms, butter worms, pachnoda grubs if he's big enough and even earthworms will be accepted. Mealworms aren't too bad if you properly gut load and dust them.
