Betta refuse blood worms, other frozen options?

Anyone else experience this?
My guys have recently decided that they no longer enjoy freeze-dried bloodworms. Prior to this, they acted like the worms were the best treats in the world. So, I thought I'd purchase some frozen blood worms...and they refuse those as well.

They'll eat the freeze dried brine shrimp, but not the blood worms. What is up with this, I thought the worms were like Betta Crack Cocaine, irresistable? :)

ONE of the nine will eat the worms, and he's a garbage gut who'll eat anything. One almost acted like he was scared of them...and the others swam around, checked them out, and then swam off in a desultory fashion.

Also, what other frozen food is good for bettas? I feed the frozen brine shrimp fairly often, and I tried the frozen blood worms (which is obviously a no-go), and I've seen a few other types of shrimp and daphnia...are these safe/good for betta?

Mosquito Larva, Daphina, white or grindal worms, flightless & Wingless Fruit Flies and I've even heard of small bits of Beef heart being used. (Odd enough. I wonder if that's really okay? )
