    1. What do you do with the corn husk? Is it just a disposable wrapper or is it supposed to be edible? Would add to the fiber count…

      1. Definitely just a wrapper – it’s almost more like wax paper than an actual husk. I mean, if ya really wanna try it, it’s a free country, but…:)

  1. OK, people of Phoenix. Leave at least one of these at a TJ’s until I have a chance to go there this weekend. If anyone from TJ’s is reading this, please set one aside for Joseph. Thank you.

    1. Joseph: You can call ahead to your local store and they *will* hold one (or however many) for you. You can do that with any product – I’ve done it multiple times with success. As long as they have them, they’ll do it.

  2. Just sampled these yesterday at my local store and found them to be nice. Tasted and felt like a molten lave cake. Recommended, especially if you want the corn husk decorator element . . . .
