I only ever owned one newt, Cherry, but boy did he love earthworms! He was a little guy so I always bought small ones or mealworms to alternate. But he loved to gobble them down as a snack (in addition to his main diet being pellets for newts). Worms were easy to get ahold of, gas stations sold them where I'm from but I know most pet stores have them too. For animals that require additional calcium (like geckos), you can also easily sprinkle some calcium powder over the worms before feeding.
