The packaging is great. I used these as a light lunch and loved that it came with a little spoon which was able to reach all the way to the bottom. As for the flavor, it was a bit on the light side. I could barely taste the brown sugar and even the beans were very light in flavor as well. Tasted sort of like a watered down multi-grain sweet tea more than anything else. Not bad though. I'd purchase again. Just didn't knock my socks off.
