in this baseball playoff season.. and while waiting for the lights to come back on at coors field.. we grabbed some sun flower seeds…

everyone in my family eats em different…

– my wife eats one at a time.. putting one in.. cracking and discarding of the shell…
– i do a chipmunk/squirrel style thing… i put one in my mouth.. crack, eat seed and the shell goes into my cheek. i love all the extra salty goodness — takes some practice and skill to not choke on sharp shells and talk/drink with the pouch ‘o shell.. and then eventually spitting out a tangerine size shell cluster
– my son basically eats the whole thing… shell and all.. kind of making a shell slurry which he spits out
– my daughter does one of those prim/proper things… where she shells each one… lays out the seeds and eats them one by one… this is the girl that peels grapes..

i know that there is the reverse squirrel method as well… where you just jam a bunch in yo mouf and spit out the shells on the floor or the dirt … i understand this for actual players… as i used to do the same..

which brings the bad memories of big league chewing gum avec sun flower seed shells all in one… yuck

how do you eat your sun flower seeds
