Not sure about the nutritional value and structure aspect - ( as far as I recall kernels used for popcorn and sweetcorn cob differ in aspect of sugar and fat) our forum fitness guru might know more on this GodmyPopcorn. Why is it always a snack, rather than a serious ingredient of a meal? It has roughtly the same nutritional value as sweetcorn, which is standard. It's the shape, isn't it? Hard to handle with a knife and fork on a plate.
I tried it once... too much bitterness IYAM. Lindt has a reputation of making quality dark chocolade products - my personal pick would be:I've recently gotten into the habit of buying this exceedingly bitter chocolate. At first it was a little much even for my palate, but it's grown on me. Now I like to have it w a cup of that Joe, a flavor combo that hits you like a ragin' rhino.

For me, chocolate is one of those very few edibles where more pleasure comes from the bite/texture alone than the taste. In fact, I really can't think of another example.
Update: whatever oat milk's environmental virtues, which I'm sure are many, it simply Does. Not. Work. in coffee (it is passable in tea). I will need to get some soy creamer.What are your New Year's Resolutions (if any?) I have several, each one on a different theme:
1. For the environment: Switch from dairy milk to soy or oat milk (mostly for environmental reasons, at least, though I'm not happy about the ethical ramifications of the dairy industry either). I also plan to cut out dairy products entirely during Lent; we'll see how that goes.
Yes, but (as far as I have heard) that's mostly soy for cattle feed, which is a very inefficient way of producing dietary protein. If we stopped feeding soy to cattle (i.e. stopped eating so much beef) and just started eating it ourselves, we wouldn't need to clear vast areas of rainforest to produce the necessary quantity.Isn't soy linked to big environmental scandals, like large swathes of rainforest cut down to make room for huge plantations of it?
Yeah, the one or two times I put it in coffee, while I did quite like the taste, resulted in a sort of syrup, like thin cough medicine. I frankly thought it was a bluff or a gag when the waitress said 'oat milk.' Here I'm sayin', 'Oy vey, since when do oats have udders?'Update: whatever oat milk's environmental virtues, which I'm sure are many, it simply Does. Not. Work. in coffee (it is passable in tea).
