    good  -  26 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a way to use poppy seeds and stumbled across this one. My husband and I love all of the ingredients and had high hopes for this. The candy came out well but there was just something off about it. It's sweet with a slight nutty flavor but the poppy seeds killed it for me. (I love poppy seed bagels). They gave it an interesting texture but also a slightly harsh flavor.  -  14 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
