These are the cheapest I can find, highly recommend from this site.
Taste; well they are a little sour. I personally quite like that but if you're not into it then you might want to not eat them on their own, just stick em in your porridge or cereal and you won't notice the taste. I also put mine in my smoothies and it doesn't make the smoothie taste any different.
All in all, fab fab fab superfood at a brilliant price. Service is always excellent from TPW too.
