Hey , I have the same problem. You actually get openings or pockets in your tonsils which collects food debris. It turns to a kernal, or hard knot of bacteria and food. It really stinks too. I actually push mine out with a tootbrush handle. I saw an episode of the Doctors where the tonsil can be resurfaced to prevent the food from getting trapped.
