I first tasted Tiger Nuts when I lived in London. In Spain they are known as Chufa nuts. When I moved to the US no one had ever heard of them and I have been searching the internet hoping to find them.

Well, I finally found a source for them. They are a gluten-free, high-fiber snack with a sweet nutty flavor. They aren't actually a nut at all - they are the tubers of a nut sedge.

Has anyone else here ever eaten these?

I've never heard of them either. I've had beer nuts. Beer nuts are $5.95/lb at Costco; deer nuts are under a buck.

"Perfect for people who are diabetic?" I don't think so...

I love corn nuts, and they are bad for people, too. I still eat them!
