I love this stuff. I first had it in elementary school. I had an amish friend that lived near us. I spent lots of time at her house and her mom made this often for all of us kids. Brings back memories. I can't believe I'd forgotten about this until now. I need to make some for my son. Thanks for bringing back such great memories.
