The trying to spit food out and re-eat it usualy means the foods too big for their mouth, its their way of making things smaller.
aS for the enarly choking that sounds like shes being a typical betta and trying to eat more than she can handle, Try cut the worms down into smaller pellets before feeding.
They're just freeze-dried blood worms, and I usually make sure they're small pieces before giving it to her. I think maybe the pellets are a bit hard and they kinda inflate once they've softened... She usually doesn't have problems with those, just the blood worms.
