I am so excited and so happy that you tried this recipe! Like you mentioned it is just too addictive, and on cold evenings, you can have bowls and bowls of it! When we go to the Global Village, irrespective of the queue, we will still buy a huge pack and fight for the last bite... hehe... It has turned out so well...
