MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 9, 2011

Tasted great right out of the oven. Unfortunately, as it sat (overnight -- I planned to take it to a work function in the morning) it got soggy and the oil became really pronounced. You can actually taste the vegetable oil. I liked the initial flavors, though, so next time I'll try the "Makeover" version.
