You do have to aquire a taste for it :) I use 1/4 cup blended in with my protein shake for a creamy consistency. If I eat it for a snack, I'll put teaspoon of honey and teaspoon of wheat germ and mix it right in. Another healthy option, you could also mix in 1 tblsp of low-sugar strawberry preserves ( or what ever flavor you like)

I also find that some of the "healthier" brands have more calories and carb-sugar totals and as a diabetic I have to read all the labels, sorry.
