  1. I dont know what i did wrong but these came out very bitter and stained our teeth and tongues. Maybe too much foor coloring?

    1. Really?? I would guess too much food coloring. I have had quite a few other people make them and haven’t had a problem. (well I shouldn’t say that…we did get purple tongues, but my kids loved that!)
