Tapioca pudding- like it or lump it?

Tapioca pudding is one of those rare foods that you either love or hate-no middle ground -which is it?

  1. I love it but then I like semolina and rice puddings, big dollop of strawberry jam.

    1. I LOVE it. It never fails to bring me back to childhood...it reminds me of the Wizard of Oz. I just can't figure that out.

        I like tapioca and rice pudding, both with cinnamon and rasins.....Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon reminds me of the Wizard of Oz.

      2. I like all of the above. Most people I know are put off by the appearence and won't even try it.

        On the other hand, "bubble tea" does not appeal to me- I don't like chunks in my drinks.

          Same here! Love tapioca pudding, hate bubble tea. Well the tea is fine, without the tapioca balls.

          1. No thank you. I'm typically anti-pudding, but I will take bread pudding and rice pudding on 'i-need-comfort' occasions.

              Oddly enough, I just discovered bread pudding in the last year. Depending on the ingredients, I love it. Love tapioca pudding, absolutely hate rice pudding.

            2. Love It! I've even drove to the hospital cafeteria, at work on off-days whenever I get a craving for the goodness.
