Any experience with Fufu Flakes?

A little while ago, i was in an exotic foodstore and saw a bag of "fu fu flakes".

After looking it up on wikipedia, it turns out it's made of starchy root vegetables. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fufu) Has anyone had experience with this? Would it even be considered Paleo?

I'll have a look around, the store only had them in 5 kilo bags, seemd a bit too much for a try-out ;-)

fufu is a starchy paste sometimes slightly fermented made of starchy roots and plantain mixed with butter. You usually serve it with a stew or soup. I have not used the flakes but I assume they are akin to something like instant mashed potatoes. Fufu can be quit good if maybe slightly bland but in a satisfying way. If you want to experiment I would recommend getting some yucca/cassava, a plantain and some butter and trying some from scratch first. Also something to look for at the market you saw the fufu flakes is a smoked fish to make the stew.

I'd be curious but I wonder if they would even taste good. What did the box say about preparation? Is it supposed to be a cereal replacement or something savory? I would likely avoid but I do like to experiment here and there just for the sake of taste - so let us know if you do buy!
