Pretty good. Reduced red pepper by half. Next time I would reduce paprika. Easy to make. Served with Asian Chicken and Pasta Salad. Thank you for sharing.

These are so easy to make and just taste great. I didn't change a thing about them. I am challenged on the twisting step but with some practiced I'll get that down. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2012

I would have rated these 5 points, but i found them to be a little bland when I made them according to the directions. Next time I think I will add garlic salt and cajun seasoning. Despite my personal spice preferences, these are a good find. They are fairly simple to make and yield a good amount of twists. They would go well with soup in the winter and be a good sub for breadsticks with spaghetti. I will be making these again, thank you for sharing.
