they're like carpet tiles!

i ate some for my lunch once and i actually wretched whilst chewing them because they're so dry! i managed to drink about 1.5 litres of water with them to try and wash them down...it was more of a ordeal than a meal! lol

would rather eat ryvitas, at least they can be chewed and have dif flavours!!!
