Is it any good? Is it a bit of a gimmick? What are the chances of them eating it opposed to live crickets? Should I buy some and try it or save my money? Thanks for your help.

I agree with Nicky,the chances of getting them to eat it are slim and livefood is far better for them.
This is true, like any animal they DO tend to get lazy. However, I have heard of people offering baby foods (because they are fattening) to underweight anoles, apparently they go crazy for anything sweet like apple or peach baby foods

we use zoomed dried food for recovering reps in convalescence, i don't see much point in feeding it if you don't have troubles when feeding live. its expensive too (for what ur getting!) its good stuff, we usually grind it all up and tube feed though :?

Thanks for your comment beesting butterfly. The anoles eat them now no problem. They also like the gut loaded frozen crickets I've started them on too (defrosted first!).

i dont see the point, what with live food being so readily avaliable, surely live is more natural and gives them excersice chasing crix.
