As a child I liked nothing more than flicking my food off my plate. Beans are better for flicking, being rugby ball shaped they stay air borne for longer than the spherical pea. I've always been a huge fan of bean flickers. I wish there was a sub forum just about that.
I can't vote yet...I need to know more about peas, like, are we talking just the green pea like the ones that come frozen or in the can, i.e. Green Giant baby LeSeur peas?
There are so many different kinds of beans, it doesn't seem fair to pit peas against beans! I have to get to work so I'll come back later when I've had a chance to research peas and if there are different varieties.
