I confess, I bought 'em because they were pretty. But they didn't taste any different to me than other lentils - they tasted as good as other lentils, but I get a peppery taste from French Lentils, at least the ones from OM Foods, that I particularily like. I notice that all the lentils from here are exceptionally clean, no pebbles or refuse in them :-) I use them for making veggie burgers, and for breakfast I usually have a lentil salad with olive oil, tzatziki, and minced tomatoes, celery,and corn. I started to eat lentils on my endocrineologist's advice becaue as a vegan I was getting only 1.5% protein, and after changing my diet I am getting 48% :-)
These lentils have been well cleaned, are very black and shiny and tasty and turn the water they are boiled in black as well. Make a great lentil soup/stew. A really nice staple alone or mixed with other grains/legumes/seeds and stuff.
