Salted Maple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, and Chili-Lime Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I love old vintage radio shows. I used to listen to them every day when I was commuting to and from my office job. My favorites were Vintage Horror Radio, the Twilight Zone, and the Great Detectives. They are especially fun to listen to at this time of year.

I hope everyone has a happy and a safe Halloween!
