"I made these for my nephew’s 6th birthday when they first came out years ago (1998); they were a big hit then and they still are now. Every time we get together the kids would ask my sister if we made bees, even to this day (now teens). We made them this summer and asked my nephew’s girlfriend to serve them (she never had them before), she couldn’t believe how fast they all came for them. We make a double batch each time, as soon as we serve them, they disappear, both kids and adults love them."
