I personally like them better than regular potatoes too, so I can imagine your hermies found them to be a treat!
Have you tried them yet, what do you think?

My crabs hang out on the cholla wood for weeks before going under, which makes me think they're eating it to gather tannin to help produce chitin. I assume this would prevent the frail exo issue you've had in the past. :) I had no idea that tannins help produce chitin. I was always worried about mi...

Make sure it doesn't stay constantly wet, such as in a background that touches the substrate. It so, it will mold very quickly.

I've been through a lot of dehydrators and they never lasted more than a couple weeks! They really don't make them very well. But last year, I got a NESCO dehydrator and it's been a real trooper.
