HA! That's amazing how it does taste like tapioca! I'm eating mine piping hot, delicious. Has a great texture, substantial, yet fluffy in a way. To save time I beat my white while waiting for the milk to boil, then just added the whites to the pot when it was time. It only took about 2 minutes for the cream of wheat to thicken. Thanks, I'm excited!
