OK we got a new snack machine at the office. I see sunflower seeds in the shell.



I see baseball players stuff a hundred of them in their mouth at once and still break open the seeds in their mouth and spit out the shells one at a time.



How the hell do they do this? Im having a hard time eating one at a time.



Any of you guys eat them?

All the time! At work, softball, and baseball, even fishing! My favorite id BBQ flavored.

i eat pounds of them a week. you take a handfull and stuff it in your right or left cheek, then bring over 1 or 2 at a time with your tongue and open them on the other side of your mouth. spit the leftover stuff out.

You can pack 100 of them in at once and eat them one at a time?

When I "try" to stop dipping, I'll usually go to the sunflower seeds (an entire mouthful), but will stop after I swell up like a watermelon from all the salt.

I do a hand full at a time. I sent a letter to see if they will make a Habanero flavor, cause I love the spicy stuff.

srsly?

pack in one side, transfer to other side one at a time.spine on side, crush between molars, push with tongue to flip shell while seperating the seed, and then either swallow seed then spit, or hold seed with tongue, spit shell and then swallow seed.

I eat them everytime I fish this one spot. it's just a superstition i've gotten into.

It takes practice, but yes, a handful in the cheek, and bring them over one or two at a time. Very addictive. I go for the plain salted ones.

Just something about the nasty taste and head buzz.
