My dad says they're kind of underwhelming because they really only taste like whatever they were cooked in.
Yeah it's similar to welks which I've had before as well, it's basically like eating flavoured rubber. And my opinion is if it only tastes like it's seasoning without adding anything to the dish itself, then it probably isn't worth eating.
Oh ignore me for the question bit.
