These are a great lunchbox snack for more adventurous kids and adults. Also, once you get the hang of them you can really improvise with the fillings adding avocados, nuts, vermicelli noodles, and green onions. My son likes his filled with carrots and peanuts. My daughter likes hers with chicken and peanuts. They started eating these wraps when I let them help make them.
