I just ate my first one. I’m ashamed to say that I had to look up how to do it.  I felt confident that this was something I might be able to tackle once I read the following:

"Cut into any shape you desire and eat by inserting a bite sized piece into mouth, chewing and then swallowing when safe to do so."

  • They are super sweet. There’s something — dare I say it? — cupcakey about the flavor.
  • They have a slightly disconcerting tendency to crackle when you bit down on them.
  • Delish!
