Update to my previous review. I was sent replacements for the previous order based on complaints. These were so much better - fresh and much more edible. I will say that it seems the flavor intensifies the longer they sit or perhaps that has to do with some of the water evaporating from them which makes them harder and more flavorful? Either way, I enjoyed these and hope that in the future more care is taken in how fresh or not fresh the product is.
Excellent customer service for being on top of the issue and quick to act to rectify the problem.
