What foods do I avoid with halloween crabs?

Sorry if this is too unrelated because it doesn't talk about hermit crabs in particular. I know what foods are bad for hermit crabs but is it exactly the same with other types, particularly halloween crabs? After seeing a YouTube channel where someone feeds their crab onion ring, chips, beef, raw egg, orange fanta soda, muffin etc I question it, like don't some of these have salt or bad things in them? Or are other crabs just different?

Definitely avoid anything on the unsafe list (you probably won’t be offering those, anyways) and whatever processed junk food that youtuber offered.

Their diet is very similar to hermit crabs, but more herbivorous. So follow the list for hermit crabs but offer more veggies and fruits with a much smaller portion of meat. Eggs still work too.

I really cringed when I saw him feeding certain things to that poor crab
