Thanks Patti and Jan. If you Love lemon, you will LOVE these. They are soooo good. Defiantly a twist on an old favorite.

I have a feeling I won't need an airtight container to store this. My hubby will probably gobble it up so there won't be any to store..

You know, I had to add that IN CASE, but we have not had to use one either:)
