That was different. We got these at a gas station today...they were sunflower seeds in their shells but they did them up in butter, sugar, and spices like anise, cumin, cloves, and licorice. That made them surprisingly addictive, even if it seemed a bit artificial...kinda like movie theater butter. Anyway, these were from some factory in Guangzhou, it appears. And I liked them better than the way they do them back home, kinda like the way I like local Farmer's Brand peanuts.
