"I made these for Easter appetizers and they were a big hit! easy to make and so yummy! I didn't have any celery and didn't want to buy a whole package for 2tbsp so I added a little extra pepper for crunch and a little celery seed to get the celery taste. Will definitely make again!"

"This is pretty tasty. I added some chopped jalepenos as well to the recipe. I cut the recipe in half to try it before I fed others with it. It passed the test, I will definitely make them for family and get togethers. I would like to know how people get their roll ups so nice and neat and tight. I tried and tried and have made others before but mine never turn out like the store platters or the photo here. What am I doing wrong? Is there a trick to this?"
