    Everyone is super exited about it for some reason. Is it worth the hype or just some trendy bullshit? :dontknow:

    Their ingredients are very good. The frozen stuff is pretty much crap, with a few exceptions. It's probably better than most frozen food, but still. I can make you a whole list of what's good there at a later date. :D
