My sister and I bought a "3 for a $1 bag" of these nuts from a lady who owns a "mom and pop" cafe. We each ate a piece and fussed all the way to the beach who gets the third piece. We finally "flipped a coin to see who gets the last piece. This candy is easy to make and so delicious. "You can't eat just one!", really!!
