Jamie - I loovvve salty stuff so they would be right up my alley!

SlapDashMom - Yes, they’re very salty and delicious. :) They have a completely different flavor than sunflower seeds though. Kind of closer to pistachios I think. I haven’t eaten them in a while but I used to love them!

Diane N - Philzendia - I have never tried pumpkin seeds. I’m thinking that they’re probably similar to sunflower seeds?
