    I suppose it's a case of 'horses for courses' ... personally I love 'em too. I really enjoy my HUGE bowl of porridge each day and feel like the cat who's had the cream all morning! :D

    Each to their own! I love them made into toffee and walnut porridge or added to soups to make them thicker.

    I think it is how you cook it. When I first did a bowl I mixed it with mixer and it was yuck! slimy mess! second time I just put on top of the toffee and walnut and only mixed with my spoon it was lush!

    Can I suggest you give it one more try before you sell.

    I had some "trial and error" before I decided I liked them.

    The first time was too sticky, the next time it became one lump.

    Now, my method is:

    Mix up hot water (circa 300ml) & chocolate shake until ready to drink. Then, put ONE teaspoon of husks in. Then give a 5 second whizz with the handheld mixer. Just enough to mix the husk power with no lumps.

    Don't go on for ages because this is when the trouble starts.

    Pour the jug contents into a porrige bowl. EAT straight away!

    It will get more textured as it cools and absorbs itself.

    yummy.
    (Have only tried chocolate flavour!)

    How much are the caps? I looked in Holland and Barrett and thought they were pricey. Better elsewhere?

    yep, think you may have used too many. i use 2 level dessert spoons in 400ml water/shake mixture.
    also if you leave it too long it goes really slimy..

    it is a bit of an aquired taste but i think you get used to it, its also trial & error.

    Mix 400ml of very hot (but not boiling) water with a pack. mix well....
    then place mixture in a Large bowl....sprinkle in 2 desert spoons (level-ish) of husks and stir with a fork/spoon until it starts to thicken. It will get thicker as you eat.
    hope that helps xxx
