I never thought I'd write a post entitled that, but here I am. If you've never heard of them, or at least never tried them, you'll probably have the same initial reaction everyone in my family did when I mentioned the idea - and honestly the same reaction I had when I first heard of it: "That sounds absolutely disgusting!!"

Love and Spinach,
