tend to roll off your fork
unless you eat them five-at-a-time, but they're somewhat manageable if there's gravy to glue them together with. Fresh peas taste much better, but they still roll off your fork. When you bite down on peas, their tough little skins explode. I'm...not so keen on exploding food.
Some people control peas by mashing them. Too much work, I'd rather pass on the peas.
They are often used in Indian food and are okay because they're mixed with other ingredients and everything else tastes great! I have no idea why people put so many peas in Indian food. Maybe for the colour, maybe because peas grow in abundance in India?...I don't know.
And then there's (shudder) canned peas.
