    I love this recipe so much that I don't even want to try any other roasted pumpkin seed recipe! Don't know if that is good or bad... This is the perfect combination of sweet, salty and spicy!!! Great for a snack or to sprinkle over your pumpkin soup as a garnish! - 06 Oct 2011

    Absolutely delicious. It's such a waste to throw the seeds away when you're only doing a carving for the front door. It tastes somewhere between honey roast peanuts and popcorn. - 30 Oct 2013

    Not sure if I made this correctly or not but I wasn't crazy about the flavours. I cooked the seeds until they started popping so perhaps my mistake. Very sweet and I just didn't like the overall taste. Next time I'll play around with the spices. All that said, they still got eaten! - 16 Nov 2016
