My kids will not eat regular nuts.  But, you put a bag of the Sugar Walnuts in front of them and they will polish them off.   These taste nice and fresh and not a large coating of sugar on them.   Be careful, the sugar will burn to the bottom of your crock-pot.   This comes off easy with a little hot water and some soap.
