These were awesome...I really tried to find the water chestnuts...either there was a run on them or a recall...cuz the shelve was empty at two locations...I enjoyed all the flavors mixed together...I served them in butter lettuce and did cut back a bit on the sesame seeds...thanks for posting...made for Spring 2012 PAC.
