BETTER, than store bought! No additives here,just a yummy buttery crunch. Great on creamy soups, or salads. You can even snack on them, while watching T.V.It make a wonderful snack for game time! Quick and sooo easy to make. The foto shows one batch I made. Next time I will double the recipe. They just seem to go "poof"...LOL My friends call them "Mouth Poppers!"... Stored in an air tight container they stay good for 3-4 days. Remember NO additives in this homemade recipe, and better for you. Nancy...12/20/12
