As far as natural foods from the wild, crabs are generally very good at knowing what they can and cannot eat along with what they can only have in moderation.
Try it out. If they don't touch it, try it again in a week. If they still don't touch it, try one more time. If they don't touch it after the third time, it's either no good for them or they just don't like it.
&& I say 3 times, because sometimes they really can have something, but they won't eat it because they don't need it. They do have a tendency to eat or not eat based on what nutrients they may be lacking in at the time.

I tried some on my geranium blooms in my tank once but they didn't touch it, then tried again and it disappeared in an hour. Apparently they didn't need it the first time but were all for it the second.
