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 
maybe we here in Ireland are just behind-the-times or something 
(please note, I don't believe a word of it - but then I happen to 
like the texture of real tapioca!)
