    Pros and cons depend on your situation.  If it's dirt cheap for you, then
    yes, it's pretty good source of fat (I think around 20%) and obviously
    convenient.  So, yeah, it's an 'alternative', though not necessarily a
    better one.  It depends on what your priorities are other than convenience.
    However, there aren't any major nutritional pitfalls to it, although I
    wouldn't suggest feeding more than a few pounds of it a day (and of course
    introduce it slowly).
