What the title says - I am at a loss here. Really struggling with a cure here.

Perhaps don't buy it for a while?

So am I. It's delicious. Kids adore it too.

It's more serious than that actually Pagwatch.

Untreated pearl barley addiction is well known to lead to effects very similar to methadone and sometimes the ague.

how frightful for you all. Can you wean them onto Quinoa?

Googled. I am such a knob.

Pagwatch Mon 24-Feb-14 17:37:37

Does one end up stealing to feed the habit?

Did you google pearl barley
Or did you google I am such a knob

<goes off to google both>
<both the options obviously. Not 'both'>

Seems like the perfect place to remind everyone of Slubber's classic pearl barley thread. Might even give the OP some ideas...

Euwww.
3rd result was about knob cheese

Cheese and pearl barley knob burger.
