What is this? Tapioca? I wonder it could be used for? Hmm.
"Best before: Dec 2005" Hmm. It's all good.
Mmm, rice cakes, think I'll put on some Vegemite.
"Best before: June 2006".

Hmm. It's all good. *apply on rice cake*
I read up on tapioca the good ole fashion way, in an hard bound encyclopedia. They are great, the information is concise and you can always come across something random and interesting that you wouldnt expect. Such as a takin. Unfortunately you can also be greeted by a tarantula on the next page. It made me jump.
And so I set off to make tapioca pudding. It was pretty simple. Some tapioca you have to soak beforehand apparently and I wasnt sure whether the pack that I had need to, so I did just in case. Turns out not, so they went quite mushy.
It still looks pretty cool seeing the clear spots in the mighty viscous mixture, not enough for my liking. I'd also recommend eating it warm as opposed to cold, it becomes a little too congealed. At first I thought it was way too sweet but that could have been because of my super sensitive tongue. Look at it!
Bet you thought I was exaggerating. Eating this didnt help either:
Thins Chips and Salad sandwich
Nestle's Club-Cappuccino flavoured dark chocolate.
Despite not liking dark chocolate or coffee, this was actually nice. Neither flavours were overpowering. This package was promoting it as a "rich source of antioxidants" and that "antioxidants keep the body healthy" Any excuse to eat it. Remember people, moderation. So is ok but that doesnt mean you should eat the whole block in one sitting!
