these were a nice and different way to eat carrots! i liked the lemon basil mix but felt that the garlic overpowered the carrots. I would suggest cutting back a little on the garlic to suit your taste... but really a great snack!! :D:D:D

We actually love ALL the ingredients, just never had them all together before. These aren't our favorite but that's OK. Thanks for posting.
