They are on the small side..
but there was enough for the pair of us to make a yummy, satisfying meal. My husband and I ate these in a sweet chilli wheat wrap with some babyleaf salad, coleslaw and houmous and they were delicious.
You could make your own..But I just do not want to – I would definitely buy these again.
4/5 – small but perfectly formed.
