"I loved the taste. When I boiled it for the five minutes, the mixture turned much darker. I am wondering if that gave it a better taste. I will definitely make it again."

"Good texture. Didn't need to be refrigerated to "set-up". BUT the taste, there really wasn't any! VERY bland. Trying to think of ways to kick it up a notch"
