I just tasted something interesting and unlike anything I've had before. Since that doesn't happen all that often, I thought I'd name Terramazon's Yacon Slices my favorite thing of the day. Yacon is apparently a tuber full of good-for-you prebiotics and fiber, while being insanely low in calories. It says right on the package that it is reminiscent of melon and that the slices are "petal-like" and I think that about covers it. The taste is not very strong though - kind of like a less sweet melon. I think melon mixed with potato myself, but try them to see what you think. I got mine at the Real Food Company in SF, but you can get them online by clicking "Buy Now" at the link above.
