I haven't tried chia seeds, or anything with them in (that I can recall, anyway), but the thought of eating that slimy seed goop from my childhood trying-to-make-Chia-Pets-sprout days is entirely unappealing to me. And yet, with all the hype about them lately, I feel compelled to try them. I mean, I don't know if I like them until I try them! But... still. I can't disassociate them from the slimy pet goo.
This random thought was brought to you by my reading:
...which has some great info about them. :)
