It's grass-tastic!

Or so says the packaging on a bag of questionable candy my roommate received.

Edible Easter grass.  made in Germany... where else.  The interesting thing about it is, that edible is the best word to describe it.  It isn't delicious, or sugary, or even terrible.  It's just sort of meh...edible.  But I guess:

Edible Easter Grass
meh... it's edible 
just isn't as catchy as:
Edible Easter Grass
It's Grass-tastic!

So you eat one, and it tastes sort of like foam.  Sort of really like foam.  But it has just enough hint of green apple that you feel like you're eating something.  And so you have another.

Good news--the entire massive package is only 100 calories.  It has no fat, no sugar, no cholesterol, or anything else really... except for <1g of fiber.  Begging the question, what the heck is even in these things?

Glad you asked.

Ingredients: potato starch, corn starch, modified corn starch, and artificial flavors.

Artificial?!  Gasp.  Could've fooled me.
