Peas ARE kinda hard to scoop up with a fork on a dinner plate, haha. I have them when I make mashed potatoes to go with chicken and meat loaf dinners. And yes, they are added to things like my beef stew and rice and curry chicken attempts.

Heh, I have to smash the package down on the counter to break them up once they've been in the freezer for too long, not long at all.

Peas or corn off the cob are best eaten with mashed potatoes.

I eat my peas wit honey,
I’ve done it all my life.
It may taste kinda funny,
But it keeps them on the knife!


I hate peas! Whenever I’m preparing a recipe that includes peas, I switch out edamame.

Thanks for the info, Dawgluver. This trend is very disturbing. I wonder what the reason is? Are the companies just trying to maximize profits at the expense of quality?

Thank you to everyone else who has contributed to this thread thus far too.
