    I made these for my daughter's kindergarten class for afternoon snack. I thought they would be a great idea...I was wrong. My daughter came home and told me that only 2 kids liked them and everyone else threw them away. They were not a hit....don't make them for a class snack.

    The tastes of orange and spearment together was somewhat overpowering.
