Weirdly enough, we all liked this. We just kept eating serving after serving, finally deciding that it was the many facets of flavor that drew us to it... Salty, tangy, bacon-y.... Anyway, it was good, and definitely helped to deplete the surplus of lettuce in our fridge. I think I may have to get my cholesterol checked out now though :)
