Good discussion though. Looking forward to any distinctions.
Yes we used to get it in the tubes but I have not been able to find it lately. After looking for the differences, I am finding all kinds of recipes and uses for both. Now I am thinking I may try grilling it like tofu, what the heck I grill corn, and its so cheap and easy to make even if it does not work out what the heck, worst case you made a mess.
