Sunflower seeds are no longer limited to baseball players. Anyone can pick and spit them as they please. Some of the wide range of flavors include original, sweet and sour, BBQ, pickle, and even Buffalo for the spice-oriented Seed Spitters. There are plenty of brands to curb appetites including David Original, Bigs, and Spitz.
