    I omitted the red pepper flakes salt in favor of garlic salt. I used store bought 4 cheese blend of American, Cheddar, Monterrey Jack Mozerella. I need to make bunches of these incredible straws! Can I freeze them? Or is there a better way of keeping them fresh for 24 hours? Out in the open? in a tupperware container? Wrapped?
