i split a package of this with some coworkers at lunch on friday. i had no idea what it was or how it would taste when i picked it up but it looked intriguing. plus, i was hungry and was told that it would be sweet and desert-like. and besides, it was so bright and colorful, how could i not try it? it didn't really end up being sweet or tasting at all like i was expecting it to, but i have to say that it was pretty darn good.
