  • These were really good. I used half smoked paprika, half Hungarian paprika. I used a mix of coconut flakes and shreds (both unsweetened, of course), and 1 tsp Redmond sea salt. My husband requested all the leftovers for his lunch. - 9/20/13

  • I tasted one and it was awful. The 2 flavors do not compliment eachother. I didn't even try to feed it to my children after my husband agreed it was bad. No, just no. - 3/8/13
