I was just given a Coco Lite Multi Grain Pop Cake and I SIMPLY LOVED IT!!! Thx MJ! And, it reminds me of my Grandmother's Wonderful Crepes. Brings me back. I will definitely be at Whole Foods this w/e to stock up. And, MJ suggested breaking them up (like potatoe chips) to make it look like more and even try spreading Whole Foods lite peanut butter on them!! I can't wait to go shopping!!!
