    I Do

    I eat them as a snack sometimes, rather than crisps or nuts.  Plus they are good for me :)

    Trader Joe's Chocolate Covered

    Love sunflower seeds but the best was when recently I found chocolate covered ones at Trader Joe's.  Yummmmmmmm - combination of two of my favourite things - whoever came up with that idea was a genius.  They also make great cupcake decorations and so much more healthier than...

    I'm Addicted

    Right now, I have pretty good blood pressure (usually about 110/70). But I'm sure it will be high in no time. I eat 1 or even 2 bags of sunflower seeds a day. They really help me study and cut back on my cigarette smoking. If only I didn't have raw lips and tongue from the salt...

    Like Its a Religion

    This is such a random experience. haha. But, when I was little my grandmother, my uncle and my dad all ate them. So my older cousin, my friend and I all started eating them as well. Now I don't eat them as much. But I do still love them. Not as much as my father though. For...

    MMM Tastey

    Shelled or not I like sunflower seeds. Especially salted. However the shelled ons are probably better for me so I don't eat too much. Otherwise I over indulge on the taste.

    Especially on my bread. My Mum will occasionally buy some sunflower seed bread which is very yummy. So yummy most of it is eaten down by me within a day.

    As Long As They're Not In Their Shells

    Too much work to get them out!    I like them unsalted.  I'll eat them by the handful plain, and love them on my salads as a topping - or even cooked into a bread.   MMmmmmmmm    Wish they weren't so fatty though!

    No I Love Them!

    I love sunflowers seeds. I guess I'm weird too because most people spit out the shell but I eat the shell too.

    On Salad

    I love sunflower seeds on my salads.  They add a nice crunch, and a richness that offsets lighter dressings.Yum!

    Like Them Too Much

     Comes from playing ball.  Cheek full after cheek full till the bag is empty. Dill Pickle is my favorite.  Usually the only thing that stops me from eating more is that I either run out or my cheek gets to sore.
