      Excellent flavoring of one of my favorite snacks. Loved Emeril's Original Essence with the addition of the Lemon. I left out the cayenne becuase I didn't think it needed it. I extracted all the meat from the shells before adding the spice and lemon mixture. Just delightful for an afternoon snack. Thanks Made for PAC Fall 2012
