    This is really good, I love the peanut butter sauce????, I also cut up a slice of ham and added to the spring roll. I also got my boyfriend to eat two, he is not diabetic but he loved them.????

    First time I've ever made spring rolls. Super good. I added cooked shrimp for some protein. I'd definitely make it again.
