What do people think about Einkorn Pasta?

Supposedly it's "pure" wheat that's never been hybridized.
You can read all about the Einkorn "Kool-aid" here http://www.jovialfoods.com/index.php and decide for yourself whether you want to drink the Kool-Aid.
Nutritional benefits aside, I'm curious what people think about the taste and texture of Einkorn pasta.
I just tried some Einkorn penne and I think it has a bit more of a nuttier taste, and seem a bit more chewy.
Any other experiences with Einkorn pasta or products? Again, not about its supposed nutritional benefits, just from a taste/texture perspective.
Received my order of Einkorn white spaghetti very quickly and we had it for dinner last night. I admit we were both skeptical but were very surprised to find we like it better than regular white spaghetti. The color is a pale caramel and the flavor is as ipse noted sort of nutty, not a strong whole wheat flavor which I do not like with red sauce. I am confused tho, as the invoice with the order said white einkorn spaghetti but nowhere on the box is there any indication of it being a white variety as opposed to the whole grain - I am going to call or email to inquire.
Thanks a lot ipse this will prob be a regular for us!
Just spoke with a very nice person at Jovial and the explanation is that the whole grain pasta says whole grain whereas the white that I ordered just says Einkorn pasta on the box.
