Are we talking about small paper envelopes with a largish quantity of the small things?

I think you could eat them, but they would be awefully dry.

Wait a minute, lots of people know that the Pansy is edible. I use them in my salads and garnishes all the time.

LOL, Carlos, some don't. I will never forget when I put then in the punch, that I catered to my girlfriends wedding and stated, they could be eaten too.

Everyone thought I was nuts.
