Another mystery solved

I got impatient and googled 'wet nuts'. Dangerous, I know.

Interesting that it's only common in a small region. It would be interesting to try them, although the name could use some improving. Wet nuts just doesn't sound very appetizing.

The cartoon is just for fun. It's not often I can identify with Broom Hilda. :)

April, thanks for clearing up this mystery. I saw these at the Golden Corral in South Carolina. Had no idea what made wet nuts different than dry.

I enjoy your blog every time I read it. Can't think why I don't come over here more often! You should remind those of us on the group.

Loved the cartoon. And I so can relate.

I'd never heard of 'wet nuts' either. It sounds icky!
