The texture is just right, the taste was amazing to me, despite others reviews about it being spicy. It has this spice in it which you can physically see (I forget it’s name) that gives it a unique taste which isn’t my favorite, I could live without it but I’m not complaining. Over all 100% satisfied. I cooked it in pasta sauce with protein spaghetti. (I’ll attach a photo of the spice most people are complaining about).
