Sunflower seeds salted in the shell are a most favoured snack on the Prairies, their popularity bolstered by the rumour that it takes more calories to get at the seed and eat it, than there are in the seeds. At summer resorts like Gimli and Winnipeg Beach, the summer residents spit seed shells and tell salty stories until their tongues are numb.
