Ven - flaked tapioca? I have now checked, and our local supermarket
at least, carries no such beast. I certainly didn't remember having
seen flaked tapioca anywhere! It seems almost an oxymoron. :) But

(please note, I don't believe a word of it - but then I happen to
like the texture of real tapioca!)
