By using a handful of these snack pellets you get a generous serving at a low cost. Cook them for less than a minute. Then serve with your unique choice of seasoning to make the “homemade” snacks extra exciting. You can charge up to 10 times the cost and still, it will be far from expensive. In other words: Small cost and effort. Big impact and margin.
