    How do I store muddy buddies?

    The key is keeping the muddy buddies in an airtight container to prevent them from going stale. You can use a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid or a resealable plastic bag.

    Just be sure to push out as much air as possible before sealing it up. And if you want to keep the muddy buddies fresh for longer, consider storing them in the fridge or freezer.

    That way, you can indulge in this tasty snack whenever you like!
