Very interesting Mauron. I had to read what the "net" was all about. Thanks for making me do a little research :-) You may want to put the following link in the reference box for others who may be curious. Thanks for sharing. Be sure to try one, or a few. If Sergio says they're tasty, they probably are.

Never actually tried them, but I believe they are. :-)
