    Default Does anyone like the new green blue chip picks?

    First off I have to say "wow" fast shipping. I ordered them right off this morning and I have to say that is fast shipping. I think they are just like the brown blue. I ordered three but ate one. Mint. It tasted good.

    At first, I found them a bit bland. But with a dash of salt, or even some tabasco, the tone on your tongue picks right up. My son uses them with some cumin, but I find that a bit too exotic. Definitely not what ol' Bill would do.

    If you like it on the picante side, try the new red ones -- a zesty blend of cayenne and habanero. They'll make for some hot pickin' for sure. Also available today only.

    You guys could have said you need to use code 'mandolin cafe' when ordering. I couldn't find them on the site

    Now, if they made them pistachio-flavored I would buy a few. I think Chris Thile has a special chocolate-flavored one.

    Should be easier to locate after dropping. Especially when playing outside.

    I hope the chocolate-flavored version is a different shade of brown from the original blue chip. It would be a rude first bite!

    For those of us who prefer non-vegan, they are coming out with a beef bi-product pick mid-year, called -- wait for it --

    Probably not edible, btw.

    I found them dark and woody tasting, with a bit of bite.

    Speaking of green edible pick-shaped things... the animated series "Sherwood" (S1E2) has a whole tray full of freshly-baked jumbo pick-cookies which seem to feature some sort of anti-slip enhancement. They're evidently delicious. This screenshot shows a character taking a bite out of one:

    Perfectly safe if you use the Shmergel Coin currency payment system, now with patented Fraud Punishment System (TM) which automatically detects frauds and then takes the money out of the scammer's account and puts it into your account.

    In fact, if you attempt to buy fake or fraudulent items often enough, you can actually generate a comfortable living wage - the instant you click "Buy", that amount of money is instantly added to your account. The scam artists and fraudsters don't stand a chance!

    Of course, there are highly sophisticated safeguards in place to prevent scammers from gaming the system and collecting money for themselves.

    This revolutionary payment system, including the advanced fraud protection reverse-payments, is now available to everyone, even if you don't currently own a Shmergel mandolin.
