These are ideal for a family such as mine who are all adult and appreciate the different mixes all made up for us, if you are a vegetarian or meat eater. We keep about five or six in the pantry an different people can use different ones. They are very tasty and it means we don't have to chase around upper hutt and lower hutt trying to find small amounts of unusual ones to make up ourselves. Glad t have found your website.
